At the beginning of the year, we brought you the first official glimpse of the new 2013 Ford Fusion (First Look at the 2013 Ford Fusion), but we know many of you are eager to learn more details about it. So we jumped at the chance to have Ford Fusion Marketing Manager, Samantha Hoyt, give us a tour of the new Fusion at the 2012 New York International Auto Show!
The 2013 Ford Fusion will give customers the power of choice with the widest-ever portfolio of fuel-efficient powertrains ever offer in the Fusion, including EcoBoost®, hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines; automatic and manual transmission offerings; and auto start stop technology. In fact, the new Fusion is the first sedan to offer gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains, each with expected top fuel economy, underscoring the company’s commitment to give customers the power of choice.
The new Fusion with the new 1.6-liter EcoBoost will also be the first non-hybrid midsize sedan available with an Auto Start-Stop System. When the Fusion comes to a stop, the engine can automatically switch off, consuming no gasoline and emitting no exhaust gases. As soon as the driver releases the brake pedal, the engine seamlessly re-starts and the car is ready to go by the time the driver presses the accelerator pedal.

The new car is flush with more than just powertrain options. With seven must-have technologies, including a Lane Keeping System, adaptive cruise control, active park assist and MyFord Touch®, the all-new Ford Fusion shows how Ford is delivering features customers truly want and value.
