The 2013 Ford Fusion is simply on of the leaders in the mid-sized sedan class and even outstands the Japanese cars like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Korean made cars like the Hyundai Sonata in terms of quality, performance, and fuel efficiency. Ford engineers built the 2013 Fusion with elegance, passion, and make a proud car on driving.
The 2013 Ford Fusion was significantly restyled for its release, with a couple of noteworthy exterior changes. The 2013 Fusion Sport has a larger, even more aggressive grille and other subtle styling tweaks. There’s an LCD screen for radio and SYNC displays, flanked by a small battalion of hard buttons; it’s undersized for the allotted space and looks it, while the rest of the controls are almost flush, capacitive controls run the climate control systems and some audio functions, with only a couple of actual knobs in place. Other Ford Fusion Versions come with MyFord Touch’s voice, wheel, and touch controls; some are changed like the elegant LCD touchscreen panel and a smallest of breaks on the shell of the dash. It has a remarkable effect noticeably influenced by Ford’s work with Volvo, and down to the storage case under the climate controls that’s left open at the sides, to leave some visual air moving throughout the cabin.
The 2013 Ford Fusion S and the Fusion SE is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, with 175 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, which it makes at a comparatively high 4500 rpm. It’s accessible only with a six-speed automatic, and only with front-wheel drive. Ford turn down to provide this model on its first drives for the media; as with the 2013 Escape, car experts believe it could be some time before Ford will be able to track down a base model. This Fusion is rated at 22/34 mpg.
However, the 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium is operational only with a six-speed automatic, but in this case, a set of paddle shifters offers the driver direct control of the gears, a big development over outdated Ford efforts in the last Fusion. This ride was improved, and paddle controls enhance the sporty feel the Fusion imparts in other ways, it also reduces the need to remove a hand from the steering wheel. Based on the power and weight differences from the last-generation Fusion, its front-drive version can accelerate to 60 mph in about 7.5 seconds. The Titanium’s also the only model to offer all-wheel drive, which include a couple hundred pounds to its curb weight. Until the EPA confirms fuel-economy numbers, there will be no grounds that the weight also affects its fuel economy by an unfamiliar quantity.
On hand with a range of power systems in multiple trim levels, the Ford Fusion is an undeniable midsize sedan with appealing looks, lots of room and trunk space, responsive handling and exceptional fuel economy. Even the Fusion Hybrid, which leads all midsize cars at 41 mpg city, 36 highway, can be fun to drive. The 2013 Ford Fusion also has some of the highest crash ratings in its class, and it has rapidly risen to the top of the charts in known quality and consumer contentment surveys.
