2013 Ford Fusion
January 9, 2012 by staff
2013 Ford Fusion, Ford’s redesigned 2013 Fusion, introduced today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, will add a plug-in hybrid version and feature technology previously available only on luxury models.
The new Fusion will come with a choice of power plants, each of which the company says will deliver better gas mileage than competing mid-size sedans of similar engine type. The turbocharged, 1.6-liter gasoline “Ecoboost” engine will get expected ratings of 26 MPG in city driving, 37 on the highway.
The revamped Fusion Hybrid ratings should be 47 MPG in city driving, 44 on the highway, topping the Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata hybrids. The new lithium-ion batteries will allow the Fusion to continue under solely electric power to 62 mph before the gas engine kicks in instead of the previous cutoff at 47 mph.
The all-new model will be the oddly-spelled Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid. With a power plant similar to the regular hybrid, its batteries can additionally be recharged by plugging in the vehicle. Ford expects to get a rating of 100 MPGe -the mileage per gallon equivalent used by the Environmental Protection Agency for plug-in cars. That will better the Chevrolet Volt and the forthcoming Toyota Prius plug-in model, Ford says.
Ford also has loaded the 2013 Fusion with new technology features, some of which were available previously only on luxury models. Here’s a closer look at some of that new technology:
