Ford Fusion Named Motor Trend’s 2010 Car of the Year®
NOV
17

Our mothers and our coaches taught us how to be good sports. Well, at least our mothers did. Even so, it’s hard to hide the excitement and pride in winning Motor Trend’s Car of the Year® award. The 2010 Ford Fusion brought home the honor, besting a field of 23 contenders including the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, BMW 7 series and Mercedes-Benz E Class!

In addition to this important award, sales of the 2010 Fusion are at an all-time high. The car is now among America’s Top 10 selling vehicles, and it is the No. 1 selling domestic car.

“Ford has proven its resilience in these tough times by delivering to market a car with broad appeal to a broad range of consumers,” said Angus MacKenzie, Motor Trend editor-in-chief.  “The Fusion range has matured into a competitive roster of midsize sedans, able to compete with the sales juggernauts such as the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.  It is no surprise the Fusion now ranks in the top 10 best-selling cars in America.”

To win the coveted Car of the Year award, Fusion outperformed the competition – including the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan – in six new categories:  design achievement, engineering excellence, intended function, efficiency, safety and value.

“The Fusion brought a vast assortment of choice that has the potential to appeal to every type of driver, from the eco-conscious to the sport-minded.  The Fusion’s combination of comfort, fuel efficiency, assortment and technology made it a clear winner among our panel of judges,” said MacKenzie.

The 2010 Fusion Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient sedan in America.  The new models offer more power; class-exclusive technologies such as Blind Spot Information System (BLIS™) and Ford SYNC®; more total passenger and luggage capacity than the Toyota Camry; and better long-term reliability.

The Fusion lineup expanded in the 2010 model year to include all-new Hybrid and Sports models and a new selection of gas-powered engines – all paired with six-speed automatic transmissions – that deliver even more horsepower and better fuel economy.

The Ford Fusion has been generating excitement among journalists and consumers alike since the nameplate first launched in the fall of 2005.  In fact, the introductory model – which marked Ford’s re-entry into the midsize sedan market – was a finalist for Motor Trend’s Car of the Year®.

Since then, Fusion’s popularity has continued to soar.  And so have sales.  Fusion set a sales record in April – the first full month of sales for the redesigned 2010 model and the new Fusion Hybrid version – and overall sales are already at an all-time high for 2009.

With its unsurpassed quality, best-in-class fuel economy, class-exclusive technologies and significant residual value improvement, the 2010 Ford Fusion is clearly delivering the key attributes that midsize sedan buyers want.

“Even at a time when industry-wide sales are down 26 percent, Fusion sales continue to grow,” said Ford Sales Analyst George Pipas.  “That is extraordinary.”

The new Fusion Hybrid model has played an important role in Fusion’s success.  The vehicle delivers a certified 41 mpg rating in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, topping the Toyota Camry hybrid by 8 mpg in the city and 2 mpg on the highway.  It also offers innovative new technology – SmartGauge™ with EcoGuide – that coaches hybrid drivers to maximize fuel efficiency.

According to Fusion Marketing Manager Jonathan Richards, car buyers are so passionate about Fusion that they are choosing to buy the high series models – Hybrid, SEL and Sport.

“Data shows that high series models account for 50 percent of sales,” he said.  “Customers are also embracing technology offerings like voice-activated navigation, SYNC and Sony® Audio.”

Richards says the introduction of a Sport model is also drawing praise from Fusion customers as is the new six-speed SelectShift transmission.

Mary We've driven various Ford makes and models all our lives and have never been let down. My current vehicle is the Dynomite Ford Edge! High perfomance and great gas milage (32 - 34) on the highway, hugs the pavement and feels much like my first V8 Explorer. My '08 will easily outlast any comprable "experation date" foreign or domestic. Love my Blue Oval! (purchased at Riess Ford in Marissa, IL). They treat us like royalty.

I want the Mexican people to live just as good as those of us here in United States! We have a long history together and we need to work as one. Safe and prosperous Mexico EQUALS a safe and prosperous United States! Anyone who thinks otherwise is NUTS! Made in Mexico, or made in USA...I'll buy it anyday over a car made in Japan, Korea, Germany, or elsewhere. Long live FORD USA and VIVA LA FORD MEXICO! Nuff said!

G. Surbey Congratulations to Ford on this very prestigous award. I'll be picking up my new 2010 Fusion Sport AWD the day after tomorrow and judging from the reviews and testimonials I won't be disappointed. Before deciding on this vehicle I pledged to my spouse to thoroughly evaluate comparable Hondas, Masdas and Toyotas ..... one month later I'm glad to say that Ford's Fusion is a clear choice. I'm sure it'll feel right at home next to our Ford '29 Model A Phaeton, possibly two of the best vehicles ever 'Built By Ford'.

Brian I am 6'3" and I easily fit into my 07 Fusion. I don't even need to driver seat back all the way. With the adjustable steering wheel, I can keep the airbar at a safe distance without having to keep my seat all the way back. I have never had a problem with head room either and I regularly wear hats and such. I would try a model with electric seats, it will allow you to lower yourself down.

Baron Davis I went to the ford dealer to test drive a new Taurus and/or Fusion. I was disappointed to find that after 20 years I still can't own a Ford car. They're too small. I'm 6' 4'' and my head hits the roof of every Ford car i've tried since 1991. That is when I purchased an Explorer, which did have enough head room. I'd really like ford to consider making a car for us tall folks. Thanks for listening, Baron

allen Worthless union! I dont take very kind to that. I have worked for Ford for 22 years now, and i can honestly say i work hard for the benifits i get. You ever work an assembly line? It is pure hell. Most of my 22 years i worked many ,many overtime hours, where i saw work much more then my family, i gave my life to Ford..and i can justify the pay and benifits i recieve. My thoughts are pure and simple...Share the wealth!

John My wife and I just bought a 2010 Mercury Milan with all the bells and whistles. We both absolutely love it. Smooth riding, very quiet and plenty of horsepower. We have owned Fords since 2003 and have had no problems with them at all. We also own a 2006 Escape and still love it as well. The Milan being built in Mexico is OK by me. I have worked with a lot of Mexicans and they are very hard working and pay attention to detail. I hope that Ford becomes the #1 automaker in the US some day. I think with the excellent quality and value that they deserve it. They also did not have to beg for money from the government. I respect that. Way to go Ford!

Dave My wife owns a 2007 Fusion and it's hard to believe that Ford could have improved upon that but apparently, they did. We love our Fusion and couldn't imagine having to spend more for something like a Camry, which is absolutely bland in comparison. (We also own a 2008 Escape and love that as well.) Congrats, Ford, from a longtime fan and owner of your products.

Nick Mastrocco I can go one better than that. I have a 1998 Mustang V6/manual with 196000 miles on it. I just put close to 1500 miles on it this past weekend traveling from Chattanooga, TN to Norfolk, VA and back... plus whatever driving I did while there. The car still has it's original drivetrain, probably hasn't had a tune up in God knows when, and still got 27 miles to the gallon while wanting to run like a race car. Take that, Japan!!!

Dimitre Isn’t it nice when things fall in place exactly where they need to be? The free market and competition are great things! The European Ford Focus is Britain’s best-selling car. “Don’t you just hate it when the unwashed masses get it right?”(Top Gear). I want a ‘10 Fusion SE to replace my 150,000 mile Focus which is still faster than 95% of the cars on the road. Let the accord compete with Buick.

JIm Meerpohl I have owned 17 Fords since 1971. The latest vehicles have been the best of the class by far. The pic up of the Escape 4 cylinder leaves a lot to be desired, but the overall quality is hig. The 2004 Explorer was retired in cahs for clunkers after150K, and several no at fault accidents led to some drive train isssues. That was an outstanding vehicle, 6 cylinder that could tow a 6000 lb trailer, and get 19 mpg on the highway (not at the same time). The Fusion we leased last summer was easily a better car than my daughters Honda Accord EX. I owned an originla Fiesta in the 70's, and look forward to the next version for my son. Drove a Focus in Italy for a week last year. Great ride too.

Paulo Silva I live in Portugal and have always been a fan of Ford - even if only european Ford. I`ve had Fiestas, Escorts and Mondeos (a full size european model, close to your Taurus) and recently added a shipshape `66 Ford Anglia to the lot (a tiny version of your `57 Thunderbird). An uncle of mine has a `93 Escort that I have already called, as soon as he stops driving. Thousands of kilometres without trouble.To me, there`s no other make in sight, and it really makes me wonder how you, Americans, consented to weaken your industry by the mass purchase of false quality products. Want an example? Check in the net the so-called luxury german makes for reliability and gaze at the results. As an European, if you only new my disapointment for not being able to get my dreamboat: a full-size Crown Victoria - not only the import fees are ludicrous,but where would I park it in my medieval town? Keep up the good work, Ford. Buy American,I know I do.

John Arseneault I am currently driving my second Fusion (not a demo, I make the payments myself). I leased an 06 when they came out and got an 08 SEL this year. I can't wait to get the next one with all of the improvements made this year. The hybrid is the most technologically advanced car I have ever seen. Keep up the good work building them and we'll do our part in placing them in the hands of customers.

Richard I am not surprised as having purchased a new Mustang in 2006 and a new Edge in 2008 for my wife and now a new F-150 Platinum for myself just about two weeks ago. Love them all, high quality, Sync and they are all made by Ford-An American Manufacturer. Left GM for a better place. All without any recalls unlike Toyota that has had 15 billion recalls in just the past 3 years. Ford is No.1

Ken Cherry I have owned seven foreign cars and twenty-four American-built cars. Overall, the foreign cars were no better in quality or reliability than the Americans. We have a great problem right now with unemployment in our country. One effective way to improve our economy is to buy American-built products, including cars, and the Ford Fusion offers an obvious opportiunity to support our own country and benefit personally at the same time. My next car will be a Ford Fusion Hybrid.

John C. Our family has driven Ford vehicles for over 70 years, beginning with my grandparents used '28 Model A through my wife's '09 Escape Limited. We have owed just a few Fords during this time, including a 1961 Ford Ranch Wagon that we drove for 33 years. I don't recall any of the vehicles that had any unusual maintenance issues or excessive costs that would have made us consider another brand instead of a Ford. Undoubtedly, Ford is building the best vehicles in its history right now. The F150 winning Truck of the Year in 2009 and Fusion winning Car of the Year for 2010 is proof that Ford has it right. May the best car win, indeed! " FoMoCo: Bail-out Free Since 1903"

Glenn Actually, some Toyota's and Honda's are being built in the USA, just like one guy had mentioned, the Fusion is built in Mexico. I'm glad a domestic car has finally won the Car of the Year from Motor Trend. I hope Ford will continue this trend of having top quality cars in their future. And maybe I will consider buying a Ford in the future. Hopefully a Mustang GT.

Steve Ranger Congratulations to FORD and all their employees for your awards, your quality, your vision, and most of all, the HIGH VALUE of your vehicles. No other automobile manufacturer provides the value that Ford does with the quality to match. I agree with many, to support American workers and American companies. But more so, buying Ford vehicles gives me the best value, best quality and a future for our children. Ford, you have shown the world how to bring transportation needs into the 21st century by offering a complete line of superb vehicles. My collection: a 2004 Mach I, massive fun, superb handling, and smiles all the time; a 2004 F-150, quiet, powerful, 18 mpg fully loaded on the highway, its like a big Lincoln driving on the highway; a 2006 Fusion SEL, superb handling, 30 mpg on the highway, quiet, the smoothest, most comfortable car to drive I have ever owned; two 1962 Thunderbirds, classics and beautiful, show stoppers and thumbs up from everyone. Americans can be extremely proud of Henry and his family for the vision, imagination, and thinking from this great American company, known worldwide and loved my millions. To the Ford management, engineers, blue collar workers and everyone involved, Thank-you for continuing to give our dreams and congratulations for being a truly great American icon. KEEP OUR MONEY IN AMERICA – FOR AMERICA !

Billy Selman Congratulation Ford for the Fusions 2010 Motor Trend car of the Year!!!! I had a 2007 Fusion I4 and loved it, it had 44,000 miles when I traded it in and it never went back to the Ford dealership except for oil changes. The only reason I traded it was due to an up coming knee replacement surgery for my wife. I needed what I call a butt height vehicle that you can just get in and get out of without squatting. The 2009 Ford Escape met that criteria and I'm as pleased with it as I was with my Fusion. I'm getting an average of 27mpg in town and back and forth to work out of the I4 engine. But, the thing I love most in my Escape that I didn't have in the Fusion is the Sync system. I tell it who to call and it's done, I tell it what to play from my ipod and it's done, I'm 56 years old and it's easy to set up. I've owned Fords since I've been driving and I will till the day that I die. The lastest commercial from GM (Government Motors) states "may the best car win", well it did it's called 2010 FORD FUSION!!!!!!

As an engineer, I have a keen eye for reliability, quality, fit and finish. I have always been impressed with Ford's attention to detail. My wife and I currently own a 2003 F-150 4x4, a 2007 Mustang GT and a 2008 V6 Mustang. We love them all. They are a joy to drive and we have never had a lick of trouble from any of our Fords. You better believe I'll be buying Ford's as long as they are in existence and encourage others to do so as well.

Jack Derouin Congratulations Ford on this important achievement. I knew this was a great car before the media confirmation. I purchased my 2010 Fusion Sport AWD in July and have enjoyed every minute in it. I purchased this car off the dealer lot and It has every option available. I normally wouldn't order a car with all the options but I was so hooked after I took it for a test drive that I decided I'd take it even with the options I deemed unnecessary. I am so glad I bought it and am enjoying the many special features I would have missed out on. I also have a 2007 Mustang GT which has considerable performance modifications. I take it to the drag strip occasionally and am used to a fast car, but even so, I am not disappointed in the Fusion's performance. It is very quick and rides and handles extremely well. The fit and finish inside and out are excellent. It amazes me how people with an almost elitist attitude will bypass American products because they had one more problem than a foreign brand. Its so insignificant a difference in many cases. We need to save our manufacturing base. To all out there who are reading this, please check out the great Ford products.

Daniel After a year of looking for a new car and wanting to purchase american, i sent my father a link to the 2010 Ford Taurus...After three months of toiling, researching, test driving...he went out and bought a 2010 loaded taurus in steel blue....Let me tell you..this car is gorgeous and I believe will hold its own for years to come...the attention to detail inside and out is tremendous. Although we did not get the SHO...this thing hauls...FORD has impressed us, and this is our 4th FORD vehicle. Ford needs to keep their eye on the future, while making timeless reliable vehicles. KEEP IT UP, and we will be FORD FOR LIFE.

I purchased my first Mustang in 1972 and both of my boys drove it to high school. It had over 230,000 mile on it when I donated it to the Salvation Army. I purchased my Explore in 2002 and I am still driving it and no porblems since day one. My wife drives a 2007 MKX (Lincoln) and we love getting on the open highway with it and we feel great.

Kyle My first car was a 2008 Honda Accord, needless to say its not mine any more. I traded for a 2010 Milan "Fusion Cousin". The Honda was over-priced, loud, had brake problems and got only 22 MPG with a 4-cyl. My Milan is GREAT, its fast, quite, has great paint, looks very attractive, came loaded with features Honda doesn't even offer. .Oh yeah its just AWESOME. GO FORD!!!!!

Don B. Ford needs to offer a 2011 Ford Explorer Sport Trac with the ECOBOOST ENGINE and not drop the SPORTTRAC from line like all the rumored stories. Also, a EDDIE BAUER model or a KING RANCH model should also be offered. This is a perfect size pickup for all of us who do not want to haul all that extra weight in a full size F-150. It would be a glaring management blunder to drop the Sporttrac---------PLEASE RECONSIDER!!!!!!!!

Ethan Ashenberner I had a first-generation Fusion for a rental car once, and that car impressed me; I can only imagine how much better the new one is! I would love to have one, but I have to wait for my 1998 Mustang to die. It's going to be a long wait, I only have 160,000 miles on that Mustang, original drivetrain and it still runs like new with no leaks anywhere. If/when that Mustang goes, the Fusion will be at the top of my list for my next car.

pnut166 Ford has been making some outstanding cars at unbeatable prices for quite a while now, but it`s taken a long time for the word to get out. I`ve owned all the major nameplates, and my Ford Thunderbird, Mustang, Ranger, and Focus have all been hands-down the best car for the money in their respective segments. I have been wanting a Fusion since `05, and I drool over the new Taurus SHO (when`s the last time somebody said that? 1986?). Just can`t afford it - will have to stick with my Focus for now. My 2000 Focus with 200k that I`ve only had to replace a battery cable and PCV valve on since new.

ryguy We have had all sort of Ford in my family, other domestics and unfortunately some imports. Now mostly a Ford family I am even more proud to have that badge in the front and back of my SUV- Explorer. My 03 has 150K troublefree miles. I have done what I can to spread the word of this great compnay and I only look to forward to the many things that you guys have to come. Ford is putting out the best of the best and nothing less. Quality is shooting up and people are starting to take notice. FInally. Even from the 90's with our Aerostars I have believed in Ford. At 270K miles our 97 Aerostar was retired 3 years ago- and is still on the road today. My first Taurus, an 01 SES is being driven by my brother with over 230K miles and counting. Keep it up Ford, you have earned customers for life. Thank you and congrats!

Ron Guidone I am so so proud of the Ford Motor Co., and the beautiful Fusion. I have been a Ford owner since 1966 when my parents purchased my first car a 66 Mustang. Since then I have had nothing but Ford products. I recently purchased a 2010 Mustang GT convertible, and am so pleased with it. Vehicles like the Mustand and the Fusion as well as Taurus will show the world that the Ford Motor Co. is strong and number one. Nice going guys,glad I am a proud owner of a Ford vehicle

Bill Conley I am very glad the media finally figured out what I already knew: Ford has been making quality vehicles for a number of years now. It is about time those people started getting the word out! For example; I own a 2004 Lincoln LS V-6 with about 150,000 miles on it and the local Lincoln dealer service guy told me to go another 50,000 miles because the engine is in perfect shape. The guy who fixes my lawn mowers and chain saws owns two Fords: Sport Trac and a Ranger. He has almost 235,000 miles on his Ranger with no major problems! Every Saturday and Sunday morning we gather at a local diner where we have been telling people for years to buy Fords! This award confirms our stories!!!

DB Hats off to Ford...Again! We are the proud owners of two 2002 Thunderbirds, and I just took delivery of a 2010 Fusion Sport AWD last month. The quality, fit and finish of the Fusion are very impressive, it's quiet on the road and feels very confident when driven hard. Ford should be very proud of their line-up... Keep up the great work!!

Gary Dunn I just purchased a 2010 SE Fusion for my wife and we are absolutely loving it. I always try to buy American products because its the people who live here who pay the taxes to run our country not the foreigners. Anyway, I was shocked to find that the car is being made in Mexico. I can understand though. Its got to be to break the back of those worthless unions. I will probably always be a Ford guy even with the Mexican slant

Steve Koller I am proud of Ford as well. After purchasing my first 2007 GT500 convertible I couldn't believe how great the quality was! I had to have a coupe version which I bought a couple of month's later. After owning my GT500's my son wanted a 2008 Bullitt Mustang so we added that as well as a 2008 F150 and may be the the market for a F150 Raptor in the near future. My point is that I hadn't owned a Ford in 15 years prior to these vehicles and after my first drive in the GT500 I was sold on Ford. The quality is every bit as good as any import including the top of the line luxury models. Keep up the great work Ford and all your Employee's. I will continue to buy Ford for many years to come as will my son!

BJ Outstanding! Congratulations to the Ford team. We have an '09 Escape Hybrid, and to offset that, a 2007 Shelby GT500. The Escape replaced an Infiniti FX35. Our tour of the AAI plant (Mustang) and Romeo Engine plant caused us to vow to get rid of our imports and buy American. The people at both those plants were truly thankful of our purchases and told us so. You could see pride in their work. I'm a former union member (Mine Workers) and know it's tough to get concensus on what needs to be done for a company. I'll offer my 2 cents. Don't think you've "given enough" and that the company is in clear. It's merely the tallest midget. There are miles to go. You're all (union and company alike) incredibly fortunate to be working for THE American auto company. Keep up the great work.
