The North American Auto Show, held in Detroit at the beginning of every year, is known for showcasing glamorous, luxurious models and the coolest new concepts. It's also known for giving out the "Best in Show" award, as determined by Autoweek
This year, the award went to the humble and reliable Ford Fusion, specifically, the new 2013 Ford Fusion model. Last year's award went to the Porsche 918 RSR.
So how did a non-luxury car rise above the pack? As Autoweek editor Wes Raynal explains, "It's very rare for a mid-size sedan to win Best in Show. I think it's the first of a lot of awards the Fusion is going to win this year." He continues, "The Ford Fusion bucks the mid-sized sedan trend of playing to the broadest common denominator. Where many of the big players are aiming for an inoffensively bland look, the Fusion delivers bold styling that projects a more luxurious message than we expect for its broad, family-car mission. . . [the Fusion is] chock-full of ... panache and punch."1
The new Ford Fusion will be on dealer lots, like the one here at Pearson Ford, located at 10650 North Michigan Road Zionsville, IN 46077 sometime later this year or early next year, but the 2012 Ford Fusion has already arrived! With a base MSRP around $20,000 and excellent features (just like the 2013 model!), it's sure to impress any driver. Feel free to stop by today and take the Fusion for a test drive.
