2010 Fusion Sport

In an announcement that should surprise no one whose been keeping even the most casual of tabs on industry news as of late, the 2010 Ford Fusion and Ford Fusion Hybrid took home honors today as Motor Trend’s newly crowned 2010 Car of the Year. While many the enthusiast has logged ample hours bitching and moaning about the objectiveness of MT’s annual awards, this is one instance where the selection seems incontestable. Despite an industry downturn and America’s apparent love affair with the bland, lifeless Toyota sedan (notice I say sedan, please don’t leave me irate comments trumpeting the superior off-road prowess of the FJ Cruiser or the astounding longevity of the 4Runner, I know), the Fusion managed to garner record sales numbers in 2009 and is contributing heavily to Ford’s celebrated success.

“The MOTOR TREND Car of the Year award is another testament of our commitment to delivering a world-class car lineup,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president, Ford Global Product Development. “Whether it is the best-in-class fuel economy or quality unsurpassed by Toyota or Honda, the Fusion and Fusion Hybrid are clear evidence that Ford is serious about our car lineup.”

Congratulations Ford, you certainly earned it.

    …and if Ford get with it and make a sport wagon version, I would be all over it. Come on, Ford! Why are you gonna let Audi, BMW, Mercedes, and even GM with their Caddie CTS Sport Wagon embarrass you? Tap your bitches, Mazda & Volvo and build it on a CX-7 or XC-60 chassis. And if you can do it for the Fusion, you can certainly do to the Taurus, too.

    Congrats Ford! It’s amazing that good product will not only be recognized by the media, but also bought by paying customers.

    At first I translated COTY as “Comment of the Year” and thought, “oh man, it must be one funny car!”

    I like it. (<–Deep insight)

    I think I won A Ford Fusion .I am in possession of a key that was not mass produced and in my opinion could be the winning key that opens the door to a new Ford Fusion Hybrid.I DID win 3 gold coins however I still have the “key” in my possession that appears to have been machined to actually “fit” a car.The three gold coins that I won are of Zaccery Taylor our 16th president.There is Writing on the “edge” of the coins that says E pluribus unum.ay for a fit.I hope I won as the car will be regestered in my wifes name.I am planning a trip back to Oregon and California and arriving in our new fORD fUSION HYBRID WOULD BE A DREAM COME TRUE!
