FIRST THE DISCLAIMER: Ford Motor Company paid for my travel and accommodations at a three-day NAIAS Digital Summit. I was not compensated in any other manner for my time. My opinions posted here are my own.
NOW onto the show … i.e., my continued reporting from the “Detroit Auto Show” (also know as the North American International Auto Show“).
I almost bought a Fusion a few years ago when I was shopping for a new car for the first time in more than 10 years. I almost bought one, but it seemed a little boring. Okay, it was a lot boring. And, so, I didn’t make the purchase in the end.
No, I won’t tell you which car I bought. That’s a conversation for another day. I’ll only confess that it wasn’t a Ford.
So, I wasn’t really expecting a lot of “wow” at the NAIAS unveiling. I was wrong.
If I’d been looking at the Fusion V6 Sport, I might have actually decided bought one (maybe). It has a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 delivering a “projected 325 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque.” This might have swayed my little lead-footed heart (did I mention that the car I did buy accelerates really well?).
Fusion V6 Sport features pothole detection technology that adjusts the shock absorbers to reduce the impact for those riding in the car. That sounds like something every Houston commuter needs.
Have you seen how pretty it is? The look is includes a gloss black-finish mesh grille, 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler and dual twin exhaust outlets. Very nice.
Check all the new Ford Fusion options. I have pictures.
