DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 2, 2012 – Ford's new Fusion Hybrid, the most
fuel-efficient sedan in America, raises the bar on luxury and
technology with the debut of the 2013 Titanium edition.
The new model will be sold alongside the Fusion Hybrid SE, which is
priced $1,575 less than the outgoing Fusion Hybrid, with even more
content. The Titanium edition was developed in response to consumer
demand for a higher level of luxury in a hybrid vehicle. Ford has been
selling the Fusion Hybrid since 2009, and this is the first time it
has been offered with this level of features.
Starting at just $32,995, 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."
In a sea of bland midsize segment choices, the flowing silhouette of
the new Ford Fusion stands dramatically apart from the crowd – exuding
confidence, sophistication and a dynamic attitude.
Fusion Titanium models step it up a notch with standard front fog
lamps, chrome accents on the door handles, rear deck spoiler and
polished 18-inch alloy wheels.
Once inside the Fusion Hybrid Titanium, drivers would be hard-pressed
to guess that this is a mainstream family sedan. Technology and design
are integrated in a manner that looks fantastic and works
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."
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.
Fusion's new hybrid powertrain is activated by a push-button start so
the key can stay in a pocket or purse. An advanced lithium-ion battery
pack is one-third lighter than before but provides more power,
enabling 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."
Fusion Hybrid Titanium will be available in early 2013.
