2013 Ford Fusion Wind Tunnel Test
Ford Motor Company's wind tunnel facilities do much more than just create
wind—they can simulate a full-blown Canadian blizzard or Arizona's desert
The automaker's six wind tunnels in Detroit -- including its
state-of-the-art Driveability Test Facility -- are virtually replacing the
real world, playing a large role in reducing the cost and time it takes to
bring new products to market.
Every year, Ford treks to such faraway places as Arizona, Florida,
Colorado, and Canada, putting vehicles through a battery of tests under
extreme environmental conditions—heat, cold, high and low altitudes.
Engineers prove-out and calibrate vehicle components, such as powertrains,
air-conditioning, heating, cold starts and engine performance. These trips
-- as many as 50 a year -- can cost up to $20,000 each and it can take up
to two years to complete the testing.

If you are looking for the "James Bond" of family sedans, look no further
than Ford's completely redesigned, third generation Fusion Titanium. Jaw
dropping looks, combined with sharp handling, and impressive powertrains,
produce one well rounded family sedan. We think if Ford improves on their
value card as well as making the interior a bit more user friendly they
could really have a best in class vehicle, until then, we think it's top 3.
2013 Ford Fusion First Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ford Fusion (and the 2013 Ford Mondeo)
looks like the gorgeous love child of a Aston Martin and Jaguar. Or perhaps
it resembles a prototype car that's designed for the spot lights of the
Auto Show...a prototype that will never get built. Instead, the 2013 Fusion
will be coming to a Ford dealership near you this fall. In this first drive
video review we got to spend a few hours in the Fusion in the hills above
Malibu and Santa Monica, California. Of course the question that we wanted
to answer is a simple one....does the new 2013 Ford Fusion drive a good as
it looks? Check out this TFLcar first drive review to find out.

2013 Ford Fusion Titanium EcoBoost
The new Fusion is expected to deliver best-in-class fuel economy across
customers' choice of gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid sub-segments,
following through with the commitment by Ford to be the fuel-efficiency
leader -- or among the leaders -- with each new model brought to market.
Fusion brings the broadest selection of fuel-efficient powertrains in the
midsize car segment. It offers hybrid and plug-in hybrid alternatives, a
pair of EcoBoost™ four-cylinder
engines, a normally aspirated four-cylinder engine, an automatic start stop
system to shut off the engine at stationary idle, front-wheel drive and
all-wheel drive applications, and a choice between automatic and manually
shifted six-speed transmissions.
The 1.6-liter EcoBoost is expected
to deliver best-in-class four-cylinder non-hybrid fuel efficiency of 26 mpg
in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine -- paired with a paddle-shifted
six-speed SelectShift Automatic™ transmission, available 19-inch wheels
and tires, and all-wheel drive with the ability to send additional torque
to the rear -- is the Fusion performance option.
The Fusion Hybrid -- 2010 North American Car of the Year -- continues to
innovate and evolve with all-new lithium-ion batteries that save weight and
generate more power than previous nickel-metal hydride batteries, while
raising maximum speed under electric-only power from 47 mph to 62 mph.
Fusion Hybrid also features an all-new 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle
four-cylinder gasoline engine, significantly downsized from the previous
2.5-liter unit while maintaining performance standards. This innovative
powertrain is anticipated to deliver best-in-class fuel economy of 47 mpg
in city driving and 44 mpg on the highway.
Fusion Hybrid fuel economy stands to outperform the 2012 Toyota Camry
Hybrid by 4 mpg city and 5 mpg highway and the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
by 12 mpg and 4 mpg, respectively.
Topping the fuel-efficiency ladder is the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid,
aiming to be the most fuel-efficient midsize car in the world. Arriving
this fall, Fusion Energi is anticipated to deliver more than 100 MPGe, a
mile per gallon equivalency metric for electrified vehicles. This is 8 MPGe
more than the Chevrolet Volt and 13 MPGe more than the projected efficiency
of the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid model.
The next-generation Fusion 1.6-liter is the first automatic-transmission
Ford product offered with an automatic start stop system. It shuts off
engine power smoothly when the car is stopped and seamlessly restarts as
the driver releases the brake pedal, helping Fusion to reduce fuel
consumption and emissions by approximately 3.5 percent.
2013 FORD FUSION
My Ford Fusion Review: part 1
The 2013 Fusion will be available in S, SE, and Titanium trim levels at
launch. In an effort to offer its customers a "Power of Choice," Ford has
assembled five different powertrains for the new model, including two
hybrid variants. All available engines are now four-cylinder offerings,
dropping the previous model's 3.0L V6 as the top tier engine choice, as
part of Ford's push to phase out the aging Duratec 30; and the Sport
package's 3.5L V6 as a performance option. Engine options available at
launch are identical to those of the redesigned Escape CUV:
Duratec 2.5 I4- This will be offered as the standard engine, producing 170
bhp (127 kW; 172 PS) and 170 lb·ft (230 N·m). of torque; a 5 horsepower decrease from the
outgoing model. The engine will be mated to a FWD 6F automatic transaxle.
EcoBoost 1.6L I4- Ford will target
this engine towards customers who want a power and fuel efficiency Boost over the base engine, without paying
the "hybrid premium." Projected output is at 179 bhp (133 kW; 181 PS) and
172 lb·ft (233 N·m). of torque -- a small increase from the base engine.
However, highway fuel economy is estimated at 37 mpg, making it
best-in-class for non-hybrid midsize sedans. Transmission choices for the
EcoBoost 1.6L are the MMT6 6-speed
manual and the 6F automatic. An auto start-stop system will be offered for
the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine paired
with the automatic transmission, at a price of US$295.
EcoBoost 2.0L I4- This engine
replaces the now obsolete Duratec 30 V6, producing similar power, more
torque, and better fuel economy. Output is projected to be the same as the
Escape at 237 bhp (177 kW; 240 PS) and 250 lb·ft (340 N·m). of torque
through a 6F35 transmission with SelectShift capability. Steering-wheel
mounted paddle shifters will be offered on the Titanium trim, while a
sequential shift lever is expected on S and SE trims. AWD is an exclusive
option to this engine choice.
Duratec 20 I4 (Hybrid)- Out goes the previous 2.5L hybrid engine in favor
of the smaller and more efficient Duratec 20, which features TiVCT, and
direct injection. The 2.0L engine will be modified to run in an Atkinson
Cycle fashion, coupled to an electric motor through a new Ford designed and
manufactured HF35 CVT. This powertrain will be available as a standard
hybrid, or as a plug-in model, dubbed the Fusion Energi.
