Most Anticipated Cars of 2013

Most Anticipated Cars of 2013

   I recently read an arcticle about the 13 "Most Anticipated Cars of 2013" on Forbes website. (http://www.forbes.com/sites/joannmuller/2012/09/10/the-most-anticipated-cars-of-2013/) I was pleased to notice that three of the top thirteen vehicles are manufactured by the Ford Motor Company/Lincoln. Not one, not two, but three cars that have industry buzz. Let's take a closer look...

2013 Ford Fusion

Likely price: $22,000 to $30,000 Ford aims to redefine the competitive mid-sized car segment with the Aston Martin-inspired look of the new Fusion sedan, available with gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. The hybrid will get 47 mpg in the city; the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid will get the equivalent of at least 100 mpg.

2013 Ford C-Max hybrid

Starting price: $25,995 The C-Max is a compact utility vehicle sold in Europe. In the U.S., it'll be sold only as a hybrid or plug-in hybrid. The C-Max hybrid has a 570-mile driving range, and gets 47 mpg in both city and highway driving. The C-Max Energi, coming later this fall, can go more than 20 miles on electricity alone, and will have a total range of 550 miles. Features in both vehicles include a hands-free liftgate and panoramic sunroof.

2013 Lincoln MKZ

Price: TBA Debuting later this year, the new Lincoln MKZ represents the future of Lincoln. It features impressive styling, with a distinctive retractable glass roof, and other unique features like a push-button gear selector, rear inflatable seatbelts and an intelligent system that controls driving dynamics.
