Ford refines the midsized segment with the all-new 2013 Fusion
Since being introduced a in 2006, the Ford Fusion has been one of Ford Motor Company’s bestselling models with over 225,000 sold in the 2011 year but with the midsized sedan segment offering such tight competition, Ford set out to build a next generation Fusion that would change how the American consumer looks at this affordable segment. Like the currently available Ford Fusion, the 2013 Fusion will offer a variety of traditional gasoline engines and a hybrid drivetrain along with the new Fusion Energi – a plug-in hybrid expected to offer better than 100MPGe.
On the outside, the 2013 Ford Fusion sports design cues previously seen on the Ford Evos Concept with a larger silhouette and appointments that provide for a much more upscale look than the midsize market has been known for over the past decade. The 2013 Ford Fusion looks more like a luxury car than an affordable midsized sedan thanks to the sharp exterior design, the refined interior and a variety of amenities like an advanced all wheel drive system, adaptive cruise control, a lane keeping system, active park assist and Ford’s Blind Spot Information System close the gap between luxury and affordable. The segment in which the Ford Fusion competes has become more about how much you get for your money and with the introduction of the 2013 Fusion – Ford looks to offer more for the money than any other midsized sedan on the market.
