What People Are Saying About the 2013 Ford Fusion

The other day while waiting in line at the grocery store, we were flipping through an automotive magazine when the dude behind us randomly offered up, “You know what I think is going to be downright awesome? The new Ford Fusion.” We played it cool and asked why. The response was simply put: “sexy” and “that crazy fuel economy.”

As it turns out, the 2013 Fusion, arriving in North American dealerships later this year, has invoked plenty of thoughts, feelings and feedback! Ford can’t help it – the sedan will suit many palettes, and that makes for many opinions! The Fusion will be available in a gasoline-powered model as well as in hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions, and with two EcoBoost™ engines, the 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter, plus a new normally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The Fusion Energi plug-in is anticipated to deliver more than 100 MPGe! Yup, sexy and efficient, if we may say so ourselves.

But don’t just listen to our take on the new Fusion or that of the guy buying the bananas and potato chips – we want to hear what you think about the Fusion! In fact, we have been so anxious to talk to you about the car, we started doing so at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in January where the Fusion had its first public viewing. You can check out video above, and you can also see more videos of what people are saying at youtube.com/fordfusion. And as we’re discovering, you are still talking, especially about its styling. What do you think of the Fusion’s looks? What about the advanced technology? How about the performance? Tell us using the form below!

bill please tell me there will be a manual transmission available...I just crossed the 2013 Escape off my list...why do car companies not want the business of people who still want to "drive"?

Michael T Wow... Well done Ford. Though I know the Fusion has been a popular car, I never really cared for its aesthetics. The 2013 changes everything. Waiting (impatiently) to see where this gets priced. Hopefully not out of my range as I am need of a new car later this year.

Alicia Boren Hayes Make sure the transmission is fixed in the Fusion! My Escape transmission did exactly what they said it would do without the 10b15 update..and fusion had the same problem...only I had the update and wasn't aware to watch for anything. The company is willing to pay for 50% of the cost to fix it since it was out of warranty by 2,000 miles. 9Fords I have paid for, bought the Escape to support Ford for not taking the Bailout (when i really wanted a CRV).hope they have these transmissions fixed for all of you.

Isaac Johnson I must say, Ford has another hit with the Fusion. I personally am looking forward to owning one. However I do hope Ford adds LED's to the tail-lamps like they did for the Taurus.

Joseph Miluso I have bought 3 Fusions since 2006 and it is the best car I have ever driven and owned. Im sure that I will buy many more fusions in the future.

Brian E. I'd really like to see a manual transmission with the top of the line models (that includes the Focus too). Ford would be wise to eventually offer the 3.5 V6 Ecoboost in the Fusion as well. Not all Americans are too lazy to drive a manual!

Tanya Bauer i love my 2011 fusion sport and i am due for a new one but i want the power of a v6. i have had three fusions so far and now i will need to find a new car. Very disappointing!!

Alan Campbell The current Fusion is really a nice looking car. But the 2013 Fusion is really bringing the midsize car to a whole different level. Comparing the 2013 Fusion to the 2012 Camry, it's like the Camry was designed in the 90s. Ford has really raised the bar.

John Holst When I first saw the redesign, I thought Ford was going for the knock-out on the competition. It's a great-looking car, and if we ever decide to upgrade class sizes from the Focus, the new Fusion is the top choice for us.

Ron Ayotte I have always liked the styling of the cars Ford makes for the European and Australian market... now that they are here, one word.. awesome. We are a blue oval family... my toy is a 2006 Mustang GT, the daily driver is a 2009 F150 XLT Supercab 4x4, Wifey drives a 2007 Edge SEL AWD and my son has a 2005 F150 Lariat Supercab.

Kevin Williams Mario, it's because they aren't just American now. Face the fact that it will be a global car. I think it looks amazing, well done Ford. :)

Johnny Mabry I like it, but why introduce it so early? Who is going to buy the '12 model, with such a huge upgrade coming down the road in a few months? Fleet sales, I guess, but if I were in the market I'd just suck it up and wait for the '13.

Eric Bushroe I will own this car when it comes out. With Roush doing a Focus let's hope he does a Fusion as well. Needs 300hp. Ill even take paddle shift. Needs 18" rims. Id like led lights. And a GIANT moonroof.
