Guys this is a work in progress. I want a one-stop post for everyone to come to for simple, fact-based information on the new Fusion. It's an important car for Ford and needs to be given the proper amount of attention on our Ford forum.

Thank you.

It is nice to see unbiased info like this, in a competitors forum.

This is part of the reason why GMI, and BON, are my two favorite forums. :)

So just for the sake of asking..
Does anybody know why they retired the 'Contour' name in favor of 'Fusion'
when they were so quick to change the 'Five Hundred' back to 'Taurus?'
At the time ford wanted as many models as possible to start with the letter F (ford freestyle, ford five hundred, ford fusion etc). unfortunately that did not generate high enough sales numbers so ford ditched that and thus thats a key reason for the name change from contour to fusion. And in the case of the 500 it was for two reasons

1. The five hundred name was not as familiar to customers as the Taurus nameplate and Ford realized that the new name was not working (in terms of sales) and decided to bring back the Taurus nameplate to try and win back customers

2. The 500 itself was a bad car that was underpowered and lacking in exterior and interior styling. When it was redesigned Ford wanted to correct all of those flaws

Ford claims hybrid version to be at least 5 more mpg than a Camry hybrid at 34mpg.
So 40 mpg is probable.

Ford seems to have hit the sweet spot with performance and fuel economy.
Nobody wants to drive a moped, like the Prius.

Love that cool dashboard too.

40mpg was the goal - I am expecting it.

from the Escape Hybrid to escape I4 comparison, I would expect the Fusion Hybrid to be at

40/35 - 42/37 mpg

(Camry Hybrids is at 33/34)

I am really loving this Fusion.
I don't care that the front end is a bit brash, it is already growing on me.

I want AWD with mine.

Those numbers don't make sense.

I bet 41mpg with the hybrid will happen. Surely, more than 39.

Ford is on a roll.
Next up, Mustang.
Then, Taurus.
A year of EcoBoost Ford and Lincoln products will be fun too.
Will Fiesta be here in 2009?

I heard the Focus got moved up a couple months. So if unless the Fiesta got moved up, the Focus and Fiesta will launch at the same time.

^ last I saw
Fiesta was on schedule for Jan/Feb 2010 and
Focus, which had been set for "the end" of 2010 was just a bit ahead of schedule - not 10 months ahead
