The look of the 2010 Ford Fusion is quite different from the current car. The grille appears deeper and more elegant than in the current car. The grille dips down into the front bumper, while the outer edges of the bumper slant upward as they reach the side of the car. The silhouette, though, doesn't appear to have changed much from the current car, suggesting that the Fusion and the new Mazda6 may be diverging on the road to sales success. More character lines on the front fenders and a revised tail suggest that this is something less than a complete renovation, as is also the case with the Mazda6.
The big news with the new version of the Fusion will undoubtedly be the new Ford Fusion Hybrid coming in the 2009 calendar year. Likely related to the four-cylinder hybrid powertrain in the Ford Escape, the Ford Fusion hybrid will have better fuel economy than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, according to a recent promise by Ford.--KGP Photography
