Presenting the all new 2013 Ford Fusion.

With a design based largely on the Evos Concept unveiled earlier this year, the new Ford Fusion should easily be the best-looking car in a segment that includes models like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Chevrolet Malibu and the Kia Optima. Inside, the larger and sleeker Fusion features a more spacious interior with a better use of technology including Ford’s updated MyFord Touch infotainment system. While the styling and technology are definitely notable, the big news for the 2013 Fusion is what lies beneath that sculpted sheet metal.

Fusion's interior features a sporty, driver-oriented environment with next-generation seating that offers expanded functionality. Exceptional fit and finish and greater use of soft-touch materials and thoughtful attention to passenger interactivity points. The Fusion proudly uses EcoCloth interior, available on SE, which features seating fabric made from 100 percent recycled yarn that would normally end up in landfills as waste.

The new Fusion makes use of the Active Grille Shutter System which helps improve efficiency by maximizing the aerodynamic efficiency of the grille opening and the engine cooling system. When less engine cooling is required, the shutters automatically close to help improve aerodynamics and fuel efficiency.

Perhaps even more important is Fusion's ability to avoid an accident with a list of technologies. AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control, ABS, brake assist, tire pressure monitoring system, and available all-wheel drive are just some of the features to help you stay in control behind the wheel. Also available on the Fusion is the lane keeping system with driver alert, blind spot information system, adaptive cruise control, auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, reverse sensing system and rear-view camera.

The 2013 Fusion body style will also be next years cup car for NASCAR's top racing series. Engineers paid close attention to making sure the on-track version closely resembled the street car.
The 2013 Ford Fusion is expected to continue the Fusion-models claim as the top selling vehicle in Ford's line up, as well as increase market-share in the very competitive mid-sized car race. I have just received word as I write this that the new Fusion is beginning to ship from Ford to dealerships. Stay tuned to this blog and www.edkoehn.com as the 2013 Ford Fusion hits the lot and showroom. Look for our staff reviews and video test drives! I anticipate this being the hottest car from this fall through all of next year...
