Revealed: 2013 Ford Fusion

Ford unveiled the next generation Fusion. It will be the first sedan to offer gasoline, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid powertrains. Both automatic and manual transmissions will be offered. There will be three trim levels of the Fusion in North America: S, SE, and Titanium series. The Fusion will be very similar to the Ford Mondeo which will be for other world markets.

There will be three engine choices. A 1.6L Ecoboost four-cylinder engine which is expected to deliver best in-class fuel efficiency. It will deliver 26 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. It will also use an automatic start/stop system. A 2.0L EcoBoost engine paired with a six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission. All-wheel drive will be an option for the 2.0L EcoBoost engine. The Fusion Hybrid will use a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine. It will deliver best in class fuel economy of 47 mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highway.

The Fusion will have tons of techonology. Options include a Lane Keeping System, Adaptive cruise control,  Active park assist, and Blind Spot Information System. It will also offer the latest version of MyFord Touch.

I am very impressed with the new Ford Fusion! Ford really took their time to come up with a great midsize sedan. I never liked the Fusion before but I really like this redesigned model. The Fusion is a good looking vehicle and looks a lot better than the Camry, Accord, and current Altima. I think that the new Fusion will give other midsize sedans a run for their money. This will be a very competitive vehicle and I'm sure that people will now take more notice of the Ford Fusion.

What are your thoughts on the new Ford Fusion?
