Article by Christian A., on July 31, 2012

Ford’s official online configurator about the 2013 Ford Fusion may now be accessed. Fusion Titanium has a price of $30,995 for the base 2013 Fusion S. When powered by the 2.5-liter I-4, it starts at $22,495, including destination. Few options are available on the S model, which uses 16-inch steel wheels. The voice-activated Sync with MyFord and Bluetooth are offered as standard equipment.

The 2.5-liter engine is also available on the SE trim. The 2013 Fusion SE with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost is a bit more expensive at $25,290 whether a manual or automatic transmission is chosen by the buyer. The SE package is equipped with 17-inch alloys, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio. Larger 18-inch wheels, foglights, and rear deck-lid spoiler are part of a $1250 Appearance Package while a $2300 Luxury Package adds leather seats (heated for front) with 10-way power adjustment for the driver.

Automatic engine stop-start technology is an option that costs $295. A Driver Assist Package adds several features like blind spot monitoring with cross traffic and a lane departure warning with lane keeping assistance and driver monitoring. Priced at $1000, the Technology Package adds a rear-view camera and dual automatic climate control. Active Park Assist costs $795. Choosing a moonroof with a universal garage door opener is an option that costs $895.

Meanwhile, the noice-activated navigation is only $795. The 2013 Fusion SE with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and automatic transmission has a starting price of $26,745, which has the Appearance Package.

However, the Luxury Package is still priced at $2300. The same options are available for both EcoBoost engine models. However, the 2.0-liter model may also get a $995 Active Cruise Control option. The 2013 Fusion Hybrid has a price tag of $27,995. It features environmentally friendly cloth seats in two colors. Buyers may also opt for leather seats offered in black and tan.

Ford Fusion’s design delivers on a promise of superior visual quality through improved materials, great attention to details, and elevated level of craftsmanship.

Its interior surfaces are very soft to the touch, its exterior and interior gaps are minimized, and extra care was taken in its upholstery. When you open the trunk lid, a spring-loaded cover hides the trunk latch hardware automatically.

According to Adrian Whittle, chief engineer for Ford Fusion, the holistic goal of their craftsmanship process is to make sure that the Fusion not just delivers a high visual experience but also offers superior quality to customers.

How the Fusion feels when you drive and ride are mainly due to its ride and handling components, which maximize vehicle dynamics.

John Jraiche, program manager for the Ford Fusion, said that the Fusion is really a driver's car and that it is more fun to drive with its specially tuned EPAS or electric power-assisted steering, its MacPherson strut front suspension, as well as its premium-level multilink rear suspension, all of which are comparable to the configurations of the Audi and the BMW.

Thanks to the careful tuning it did, Ford's ride and vehicle handling team yielded a vehicle with a dynamic character, which will surely please any well-seasoned enthusiast while also increasing the less-experienced driver’s confidence level.

Moreover, the Fusion achieves a new level of interior quiet with its acoustic underbody shields and the weight-saving sound-absorption material it uses. Both of these help minimize powertrain and road noise, as well as boost aerodynamic efficiency, thus helping save fuel. The all-new Fusion model also adds content like a full-perimeter hood seal, making it one of the leaders in the midsize sedan segment, especially when it comes to giving you a quiet ride.
