Was expecting a little more from the interior, but the exterior downright great.

Notice it has an electronic parking break?

I am glad they kept it toned down.. this means the MKZ's interior will be a huge step above it.

Looks like a production Evos. That's a good thing!

Buy American!
Buy Ford!

I guess this is why they say looks are subjective....I feel the exact opposite. I really like that interior. Class leading IMO. The exterior is OK, but I think it will polarize some buyers

Well now that I see the interior straight on, it looks better than the first picture.

It also has paddle shifters instead of the toggle on the shifter. I wish the Focus had those.

Re: NAIAS 2012: 2013 Ford Fusion

Awesome vehicle inside and out.

Interesting observation - the new Fusion looks like a cross between an Aston Martin and an Audi - not a bad thing to have your bread and butter car look like something costing tens of thousands more.

Over at Chevrolet their new Malibu looks like a Toyota Camry. Thud.

Love all the variations of the new Fusion and it weighs right around what that lard butt Chevrolet Snuze does. And Ford's turbos are the real deal - not some marketing gimmick. If a 2.0T can move a Ford Edge well, imagine what it will due in a much lighter Fusion!

47 mpg hybrid? Amazing. A real car that doesn't look like some snobby hybrid. This thing is going to sell like gangbusters.

I hope Ford gets a second assembly plant ready. This new Fusion will set records for the nameplate and will easily sell over 300,000 units a year. Look for the low monthly sales to be 25,000 units and the high side to be 28,500.

Can't wait to see the MKz. This is going to be hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!
