Ford Fusion: The Closet Sports Car

The Ford Fusion generated great success for the Detroit automaker when it was first released back in 2006.  It’s design sustained few changes up until this year, where it got a whole new makeover.  The Ford Fusion is no longer a simple sedan set on commuting, for it has been overhauled into a new being that can compete with some of the prowlers on Utah’s streets.


The new look is much different than the previous one.  Those mindful of the old adage that cars should “look like us” note that the front looks meaner and more aggressive than ever before.  Previous models looked more like stoic robots, with the simple task of ferrying passengers to and fro.  But the new Fusion gives Ford a competitive edge with that fierce, almost angry look it has in the front.  It almost looks like an exotic sports car, and performs like one too.


The new design brings a smooth and powerful ride to Utah’s freeways.  It has a turbocharged engine that delivers power and fuel efficiency at the same time, a rare combination for a single car.  The outside space increased slightly, whereas interior space expanded greatly to add to passenger comfort.  The body is stronger and more dynamic, allowing it to be pushed to further extremes without compromising the safety of the passengers.  Needless to say, the Ford Fusion looks pretty awesome.


Several options entice consumers to spring for the Fusion due to all it’s amenities.  The Titanium package, for example, includes heated seats, keyless ignition, and MyFord Touch capability, all of which giving the car that novelty sports car-like feel.  As for the engine, it can be a hybrid or a Ford Energi, which is Ford’s latest advance in plug-in hybrid technology.  A powerful engine that can get superior gas mileage is a force to be reckoned with, especially with Utah’s gas prices on the rise.


Looking to get a sportscar with several amenities?  Even though the Fusion is a sedan with a hybrid engine, it can still hold its own against any sports car in Utah.
