The Textbook Success of the Ford Fusion

Posted: January 31, 2013 in Uncategorized

The name Ford is rightly synonymous with the auto industry, and a testament to their success is the level of quality which they have maintained throughout their history. From pioneering the mass-produced automobile to creating the most successful line of trucks for several years running, Ford clearly knows how to excite the auto world. It comes as no surprise then that last year’s new Ford Fusion collected multiple Car of the Year awards from several trusted sources like AOL Autos and Autobytel, a feather in the cap after receiving Best in Show at the Detroit Auto Show.

At first glance, it might seem like only the curved exterior of the Fusion is all that sets it apart from the mid-sized sedans of the world, but a closer look will reveal what makes this model, less than a decade old, a favorite of the weekday warriors and style-minded families. This year’s 2013 model marks a redesign of the Fusion, starting with an increase to strength that translates to every aspect of driving the car. To complete the street-smart progressive dynamic that matches the Fusion’s urban demographic, this strength is paired with an EcoBoost engine, in addition to optional hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. All of this gives the 2013 Ford Fusion a trifecta of qualities for people who want something stylish, green, and powerful, while also adding a 2013 Green Car of the Year award from the Green Car Journal to its trophy shelf.

Awards only tell half of the Ford Fusion’s story, however, and the real test of an auto’s success is by how many people drive it. Since the Fusion’s introduction in 2005, sales have been on a steady increase, with nearly a quarter million being sold in both 2011 and 2012. With more and more Fusions taking to the streets, buyers are picking up on the cue to save at the pump without losing any horsepower and enjoying the feel and look of their new Ford. If you’re in Utah, you can experience the difference firsthand if you visit Ken Garff, a Salt Lake City car dealer who will help you find the right Fusion for your budget and needs.
