Ford’s new Fusion Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient sedan in America. Now, the bar is being raised on both luxury and technology with the debut of Ford’s 2013 Titanium edition.
The sleek new model will be available in addition to the Fusion Hybrid SE. According to Ford, the Titanium edition was developed in response to consumer demand for a higher level of luxury in a hybrid.
Price is Right The Fusion Hybrid has been available since 2009, but this is the first time it’s been offered with so many amenities. The starting price is only $32,995, which means the Fusion Hybrid Titanium is available for the same price as the 2.0-liter EcoBoost® Fusion with all-wheel drive.
“Traditionally, car buyers have had to compromise when selecting between class-leading efficiency, premium amenities and value,” said Samantha Hoyt, Fusion Marketing manager. “The new Fusion Hybrid Titanium lets customers have it all.”
Stylish Outlook The new Ford Fusion is a stand out in styling in the mid-size car market. It was designed to exuding confidence, sophistication and a dynamic attitude. Fusion Titanium models come standard with desirable features, such as front fog lamps, chrome accents on the door handles, a rear-deck spoiler and polished 18-inch alloy wheels.
Interior Insights On the inside of the Fusion Hybrid Titanium, drivers will be hard-pressed to recognize that this is a mainstream family sedan. Technology and design are integrated in look that is address function and fashion. Both front seats get power adjustability, with the driver’s seat getting 10 directions from which to choose. All seats along with the steering wheel and shift lever are trimmed in leather. “All of the interior materials and surface finishes provide the sense of arriving at a destination,” said Gary Braddock, Fusion interior designer. “Metallic finishes on the door, instrument panel and center console are bright without being reflective, allowing the interior to look expensive without being ostentatious.”
Tech Talk Controls fall readily to hand in the driver-oriented cockpit of the Fusion, and Titanium models get a 12-speaker Sony® audio system with HD Radio™. The award-winning SYNC® connectivity system is augmented with the enhanced voice control capability of MyFord Touch® along with SYNC Services on every Fusion Titanium. A rear view camera and Reverse Sensing System help to keep the driver aware of what is behind the Fusion while backing up. For night driving, an ambient lighting system provides a relaxing and pleasant cabin environment while an auto-dimming electrochromic rearview mirror ensures the driver is never blinded by other vehicles with bright headlights coming up from behind.
Hy-Powered Fusion’s new hybrid powertrain is activated by a push-button start so the key can stay in a pocket or purse. The advanced lithium-ion battery pack is a third lighter than before but provides more power, which enables electric driving at speeds up to 62 mph. “With Fusion Hybrid Titanium, going green no longer means having an austere ride,” says Hoyt. “No guilt, no pain.”
