2012 Ford Fusion

Posted: 01/06/2012 - 7:15 PM ET

An avant-garde design, groundbreaking and a high technology midsize-car, are the features that define the 2012 Ford Fusion. Not only that, this classy car also excels when it comes to fuel consumption and running performance making it a great choice for midsized car fans out there.

Ford has added several advanced features to the 2012 Fusion to improve its performance. First, there’s an added automatic transmission that comes as a six-speed and is a standard on every SE model. The SE model is actually the most popular among five of the series that Ford has to offer. The SE model introduces the latest innovation for modern standards with its aluminum, 17-inch wheels.

Ford’s 2012 Fusion is highly competitive when it comes to fuel consumption. The reasons for that are the upgrades Ford has made to their engines. The 2012 Ford Fusion comes in a four-cylinder 2.5 liter fuel tank and gets an estimated 33 miles per gallon on the highway, and 23 miles per gallon in the city. The Fusion also comes in a V6 3.0-liter and V6 3.5-liter, which can give better driving performance with a very economical consumption on fuel. The great thing about the V6 3.0-liter is that it allows the engine to be fueled with unleaded gasoline, such as E85. In addition to those advancements, its spark timing and fuel injection have automatic adjustment mechanisms that coordinate with the blend of fuel used. Its electronic sensors make this automatic detection possible.

Of course, Ford has not forgotten to make improvements to the comfort it brings to its driver and passengers, like they have on some of their other cars and trucks. The 2012 Ford Fusion can give its customers total comfort while having extremely sound travel. This is one car company that has improved the interior features to contribute to an optimal driving and riding experience.

Now, the Fusion includes extra comfort features such as inferior control arms and dampers that diminish the noise that road travel produces. It also has door seals that are more enhanced. These door seals can help lessen the noise caused by the wind moving across the outside of the car body. The car’s mirrors are even able to dampen noise as well by deflecting the wind downwards. The Fusion can also give a secure feeling to its passengers with its antilock disc brakes, traction control and airbags at every side that will come in handy during the unforeseen occurrence of a crash. It also complies with the McKey Standards in which parents are able to set limits for stereo volume and driving speed so when their children take their vehicle out on the road, they know they can help ensure safe driving. As a matter of fact, the 2012 Ford Fusion has received a four out of five star rating when it comes to side and frontal impact collisions from studies conducted by the national government.

When it comes to style, performance and safety, the 2012 Ford Fusion is certainly a great deal. Perhaps the biggest fault found thus far has been the climate control features, as many have felt they could have been improved, but still, this complies with the previous standards and overall, the 2012 Fusion has received at least four out of five stars.
