The 2013 Ford Fusion is the first sedan to offer gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid power trains, each with expected top fuel economy. The Ford Fusion has seven new technology features, including a Lane Keeping System, adaptive cruise control, active park assist and MyFord Touch®.
Fusion buyers can choose from several fuel efficient power trains: EcoBoost™, hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines; automatic and manual transmission offerings, and auto start stop technology.
The 1.6-liter EcoBoost delivers four-cylinder non-hybrid fuel efficiency of 26 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine has a paddle-shifted six-speed SelectShift Automatictransmission, available 19-inch wheels and tires, and all-wheel drive with the ability to send additional torque to the rear.
The all new Fusion has latest generation of Ford’s award-winning SYNC® communications and entertainment system, enabling voice-activated communication through the driver’s mobile phone. Fusion also offers the latest version of MyFord Touch®, allowing a driver to interact with vehicle systems through voice control, a touch screen tap or a conventional button.
Both SYNC and MyFord Touch – powered by SYNC – help reduce the potential for driver distraction through voice-controlled functionality, allowing drivers to keep hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Fusion also has a Lane Keeping System that uses a small, forward-facing camera behind the inside rearview mirror to “look” down the road to monitor the lane lines and make sure the car stays inside the lane. The system will alert a driver if drowsiness or erratic lane-keeping is detected. The second element warns a driver with a steering wheel vibration if the Fusion drifts too close to lane markings. Finally, lane keeping aid will actually apply pressure on the steering to help bring the car back into proper lane position
Adaptive cruise control also “looks” down the road when activated, slowing the Fusion when slower traffic is detected ahead. Adaptive cruise control enables collision warning with brake support to help slow the car if a crash is detected
Active park assist also uses sensors and can identify parallel parking space, calculate the trajectory and steer the car to properly position in the parking space. The driver only operates the accelerator and the brake pedals.
Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with cross-traffic alert relies on sensors in both Fusion rear quarter-panels to detect traffic in a driver’s blind spot. It sounds an audible and visual warnings if traffic is sensed. BLIS technology enables cross-traffic alert, warning the driver of oncoming traffic when backing out of a parking space with obstructed views, such as between two large vans.
