January 12th, 2012 by Christen
You’ve asked for it! A sleeker, sexier sedan to fit your stylish needs...and Ford listened! The all-new Ford Fusion was revealed earlier this week during the North American International Auto Show and its been receiving rave reviews! Featuring a sleek silhouette and fresh face, the all-new Fusion is the latest in a series of vehicles from Ford – following the 2011 Fiesta subcompact and 2012 Focus small cars – developed to satisfy customers everywhere who want leading fuel efficiency, helpful technologies and game-changing looks. But here’s where the Fuse stands out – the new Ford Fusion is the first sedan to offer gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains, each with expected top fuel economy, underscoring Ford’s commitment to give customers the power of choice.
- Lane Keeping System: No need to fear about “drifting” into the next lane over. With Fusion’s Lane Keeping System technology the system will alert a driver if drowsiness or erratic lane-keeping is detected. The second element warns a driver with a steering wheel vibration if the Fusion drifts too close to lane markings and even apply pressure on the steering to help bring the car back into proper lane position
- Adaptive cruise control: Using forward-looking radar, this system “looks” down the road when activated, slowing the Fusion when slower traffic is detected ahead. Adaptive cruise control enables collision warning with brake support to help slow the car if the potential of a crash is detected
- Active park assist: Using sensors, this technology can identify a suitable parallel parking space, calculate the trajectory and steer the car to properly position it within the spot. All a driver need do is operate accelerator and brake pedals. It does the parking for you!
- Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with cross-traffic alert: Sensors keep an eye out for your blind spots for you. BLIS technology enables cross-traffic alert, warning the driver of oncoming traffic when backing out of a parking space with obstructed views, such as between two large trucks or vans.
