2013 Ford Fusion

Ford refines the midsized segment with the all-new 2013 Fusion

Later today in Joe Louis Arena in Detroit as part of the 2012 North American International Auto Show, Ford Motor Company will unveil the entirely-new 2013 Ford Fusion - a car that will raise the bar for the midsized sedan segment with a level of luxury and fuel economy that has never before been seen in this segment.

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.

Very nice looking car. Ford has been lately stressing beauty and this is a good exemplification of the company's policy. This is why I really liked the title in one of the Birtish newspapers on the 2013 Fusion. It was titled "New Ford Fusion a poor man's Aston?" Indeed, it looks like a luxury sports sedan.
