As we told you last week, Ford has a new Fusion in the works. This week, Ford unveiled the sporty looking coupe at the Detroit Auto Show, and it was everything industry experts had anticipated.
Drawing on the “One Ford” model, which has Ford bringing the same vehicles (though sometimes renamed) to every market, rather than making different models for European, Asian, South American, African, and North American drivers, the Fusion is slick. The Wall Street Journal said it drew on design elements of the Aston Martin, but most people will look at it and think BMW or Mercedes. This is not your average, boring, make-sure-it’s-really-yours-bef0re-putting-the-key-in-because-they-all-look-the-same family sedan. This is the make-everyone-at-the-PTA-jealous-of-the-European-styling-of-your-American-vehicle family sedan.
Even better than its looks are the Fusion’s technical specs. Ford plans to make both an electric-gasoline hybrid model (the Fusion Hybrid) and an all-electric model (the Fusion Energi), and all three versions are impressively fuel-efficient. Even the all-gasoline model has an EPA mpg of 23city/33hwy, which is great for a five-passenger mid-sized sedan.
The much-anticipated Detroit Auto Show is next week, and industry experts are buzzing with anticipation over Ford’s redesign of the classic Fusion sedan. The Wall Street Journal reports that the 2013 Fusion “will look more like the ultraluxury sports car Aston Martin Vantage than the current boxy version.”
Ford is keeping details close to their vest. Photos and videos? Nowhere to be found. How about fuel efficiency? Mum’s the word. What about price? Their lips are sealed. How many will they produce? No one will say, though the WSJ notes that in October, Ford increased Fusion production capacity at its Michigan manufacturing plant to 350,000 units per year.
Long revered as an American auto maker, Ford has partnered with a European design team for the new Fusion. The same studio is responsible for the redesigned Ford Focus, while the American design team focuses on trucks and SUVs. According to journalists who’ve gotten a sneak peek at the redesigned sedan, the Cologne, Germany-based team has taken details of the Aston Martin and Mustang fastbacks and integrated them into the family-centric vehicle.
