2010 Fusion - Buss Ford
Ford has had its challenges in releasing a quality car in the mid-size sedan category of vehicles. A good mid-size sedan built right can generate tremendous sales and help struggling automakers get back on their feet. The 2010 Fusion introduced by Ford is very impressive to say the least, and it is a perfect fit into the mid-size sedan domain for the public. The new 2010 Fusion offers numerous innovative features and excellent fuel mileage. The conventional style Fusion has a potent V-6 engine, and a huge three-bar chrome grille on the front portion of the car over a more afflicting lower air intake and two big size fog lamps. The novel Fusion also has blind spot detection, along with a larger seating capacity and overall storage space. The new 2010 Ford Fusion definitely has a sportier type of appearance with a power dome style hood and integrated tail lamps behind the vehicle. The current Fusion model has a more mundane type of look, so this is definitely an upgrade in the appearance category.
The interior portion of the 2010 Fusion is modern in style, and somewhat more technical. There are novel metallic trim finishes along the instrument panel, as well as the steering wheel and center console. The steering wheel is embellished in leather, and the instrument panel itself has some wild blue lighting that will blow your mind away toward a futuristic looking style car. Seating is extremely comfortable, and there is an augmentation in side support. Depending on the exact model you purchase, you will have either a V-6 or I-4 style type of engine. The base model has 172 horsepower, along with 175 lb-ft of torque. The car can go from 0 to 60mph in just under 10 seconds. The engines are designed to give drivers the best fuel economy for their money, and overall toxic emissions have been reduced drastically.
One of the most exciting features of the 2010 Fusion is the hybrid model. According to Gary Witzenberg at autoMedia.com, who wrote a review about the new hybrid Ford fusion, the vehicle gets an amazing 41mpg in city driving and 36mpg on normal highway conditions. Equipped with a 2.5 Atkinson cycle 4 cylinder engine, this vehicle easily transitions from gasoline to electric power and vice versa, along with a very smooth ride. There is also a smaller size battery, and a modified cooling system that does not require any type of extra air conditioning system compared to other models. There is also an enhanced electronic throttle control that decreases airflow on shutdowns. This decreases fuel requirements when the vehicle has to be restarted again. The brake system in the 2010 Fusion hybrid model is amazing. It has full regenerative braking, and this braking is also supported by friction braking as a backup when required. The hybrid model also allows the vehicle to run much longer at higher speeds in the electric mode. Witzenberg also states that this vehicle can go over 700 miles on just one tank of gas! Now that's impressive!
There are other types of 2010 Fusion models, such as the Fusion Sport which showcases a 3.5L Duratec V-6 engine. This total sport vehicle is perfect for those getaway weekend drives or just to take out for a fun spin on the town. All wheel drive will be an option with this model containing 3.0L and 3.5L six-cylinder engine choices. Regardless of what type of 2010 Fusion you decide to purchase, you can definitely expect a nice change in style, mpg, and overall handling with the new 2010 Fusion.
