2012 NAIAS: Ford Introduces The All-New 2013 Fusion

Continuing its plan of global product utilization, Ford introduced its 2013 Ford Fusion that is essentially the European Ford Mondeo. Enthusiasts have thought for years that Ford should have brought over this slick-looking and highly regarded sedan. The new Fusion boasts new styling, powertrains and technologies in an effort to become a leader in the highly competitive mid-size sedan segment.

The big news for the new Fusion is efficient powertrains. The two gasoline engines are turbocharged 1.6 and 2.0 liter four-cylinders. These engines are part of the EcoBoost family designed for high power and efficiency. When equipped with an automatic transmission, the 1.6 liter unit includes an automatic start/stop system which seamlessly stops the engine when the vehicle is stopped and restarts when the throttle is applied. The system can increase fuel mileage and decrease emissions by over three percent. The Fusion Hybrid continues for 2013 and is joined by the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid that is projected to deliver better fuel economy than the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius. No V6 engine will be offered.

With its German heritage, count on the Fusion to deliver a driving experience that's perhaps unmatched by any previous Ford sedan and will be complemented by its euro-chic styling. With the Fiesta, Focus, Transit and now Fusion, Ford is serious about its plan of global platforms and each is worth a test drive.
