2006 Ford Fusion


This is the first real look at the all new Ford Fusion coming out late next year.
This new mid sized car will compete mainly with the Camry and Accord.
It is based on the next Mazda6, which is larger than the current one.
Mercury and Lincoln (Zephyr) versions will follow. At first, the engine will be the 3.0 Liter V6 Ford seems to be using in almost everything they make these days. But a larger 3.5 Liter should be available a year later.
I think this car looks better than anything else in its class. Truly unique and modern, without being shocking or disturbing...
When you really look at it, the profile looks ike the European Mondeo. And that's because it will also be the next Mondeo.


They were not kidding when they said that this Ford 427 Concept (from a couple of years ago) was showing Ford's design direction for their sedans.
I guess it was too late for the boring 500 that just came out... Maybe the "face lift" in a couple of years will bring it in line .


For once, the real thing looks even better than this sketch Ford released last year!
