Much ado has been made recently about the solvency of Detroit’s Big Three, and if there’s one thing we all know, it’s that none of them will be able to make it out of this financial mess without good products. That makes the arrival of the significantly upgraded 2010 Ford Fusion particularly timely. As the bread-butterer of the Ford car lineup, the Fusion has done reasonably well from a sales standpoint, but based as it is on a platform that debuted way back in 2002 with the Mazda 6, it has fallen considerably behind the rest of the class, finishing sixth out of seven in a recent comparison test of family sedans.
While this latest 2010 Fusion isn’t totally new, it is vastly updated inside, outside, and under the skin. The new Fusion Sport model marks the first Fusion application of Ford’s ubiquitous 3.5-liter V-6, positioned above the four-cylinder and 3.0-liter V-6 offerings, both of which are themselves significantly enhanced for 2010. (A Fusion hybrid model is also available for the first time, and we’ve found it to be shockingly good.) Given the thorough revisions, we were anxious to get into the 2010 Fusion to see if its dynamics could match its considerably improved interior and exterior styling.

Bold and Macho on the Outside
On the road, the Fusion looks entirely dressier and far more noticeable to the casual observer (and likely, the cops), as this update represents more than a refresh and is closer to a redesign. The redo starts with a newly styled fascia and hood that incorporate some of the cues of Ford’s European lineup, such as a lower-intake shape similar to that of the slick Mondeo and the soon-to-be-Americanized Fiesta. Above that, however, lives pure American Ford, with a huge three-bar grille, brooding headlamps, and a tall, domed hood. Ford claims that aerodynamics are considerably improved compared with the first generation. The base model rides on 16-inch wheels and Sport models wear 10-spoke 18-inch wheels, while everything else get 17s standard and have 18s as an option. In back, the beveled taillamps, skirted bumper valance, and contoured decklid add substance and intrigue to what was a painfully dull posterior before, excepting, of course, the vulgar chunks of chrome that housed the taillights.

Soft and Cuddly on the Inside
While the interior is also hugely improved, it breaks little new ground in terms of design or material application. Most improvements focus on climbing the scale of perceived quality, with liberal use of soft materials at touch points all around and low-gloss plastics (except for the piano-black gearshift surround on the Fusion Sport). The electroluminescent instrument cluster is arguably its nicest element: clear, legible, and distinctly upscale with red needles climbing over white script on a conelike, blue and black 3-D background. The thick center stack could be from any mid-size sedan, and regardless of whether or not the Fusion is equipped with the available SYNC infotainment system, it suffers from a serious case of button-itis.

The Fusion does dip into Ford’s more recent bag of tricks for its customizable ambient/cupholder lighting system that some of us love and some of us dismiss as mere auto fluff. What’s not auto fluff is Ford’s latest-gen SYNC infotainment system, which includes things like fuel-price search capability and real-time traffic, all of which has earned praise on our pages before.
The only thing we find truly controversial is the contrasting interior color combos on the Fusion Sport models, which feature bright blue or red leather inserts on the seats and matching rubber-like trim on the dash. The good news is that when you actually sit inside, you can’t see the bright leather, leaving only the dash trim to be savored in all its glory. You can also opt for an all-black interior, which would be our choice.
Capable Four-Cylinder, Best Application Yet of 3.5-liter V-6

The Fusion’s powertrain lineup has been completely overhauled for 2010 and offers more choices, starting with the four-banger, now enlarged to 2.5 liters from 2.3 and blessed with 15 more hp and 16 additional lb-ft of torque for a total of 175 hp and 172 lb-ft. The manual and automatic transmissions that mate to the four-cylinder each have an additional forward gear this year, too, for a total of six. In spite of its frugal intentions—Ford claims 33 mpg on the highway, but had no figures for city-cycle mpg at the time of this writing—we found the motor to be willing, revvy, and smooth. Ultimate acceleration is on the lazy side of adequate, but the midrange punch is quite satisfying. Ford claims a 0–60 time of 9.5 seconds, but that was the pokey time we recorded in a 2.3-liter car with a five-speed automatic. Additionally, a 2.3-liter Fusion with a five-speed manual was clocked at 8.1 seconds to 60, so we expect the 2010 model to handily outpace Ford’s estimates.
Turning and stopping, however, proved to be a mixed bag. On an autocross that Ford had set up, the four-cylinder’s steering responded directly if not terribly quickly to inputs, and being electric, it never outran its assistance in the slalom areas. The myriad chassis improvements include reworked front suspension geometry. The stability-control system is subtle and unobtrusive, allowing quite a bit of drift before reining in the fun. The electro-nannies in the ’09 Toyota Camry that Ford brought along for comparison purposes were far more aggressive—and annoyingly vocal—in their stabilizing directives, and its hydraulic steering was quick to cavitate.

Touring the gorgeous mountainous roads north of Malibu, California, in a 3.0-liter V-6 model, we noticed nuances we didn’t pick up on during the autocross portion with the four-pot. The 3.0-liter’s additional 19 hp and 18 lb-ft of torque—output is now 240 hp and 223 lb-ft—are indeed noticeable, and the E85 capability is appreciable for residents of the upper Midwest. (Ford’s 0–60 estimate is a conservative 7.9 seconds; we tested the 221-horse car at 7.4.) But the V-6’s droney sound quality remains devoid of soul. On the road, we also noticed that the Fusion’s steering quality, while comfortably weighted immediately off-center, gets rubber-bandy the further the wheel is turned. Not helping matters are brakes that lack feedback during the first half of pedal travel, which seems like an eternity when approaching a craggy rock face at a heady clip.
Not surprisingly, the Fusion Sport, with its 263-hp 3.5-liter V-6, proved the most enticing. Our sample was also equipped with all-wheel drive, a rarity in this class and, as before, available only with V-6–powered Fusions. As such, the engine’s 249 lb-ft of torque propels the 3800-lb sedan (3600 pounds with front-wheel drive) with little trouble. Ford claims a 7.0-second 0–60 time, which seems a touch pessimistic from the seat of our pants, and, if the rest of the company’s conservative estimates are anything to go by, will prove so. Better still, the aural quality is much better than that of the 3.0-liter mill, and indeed, as installed in the Fusion, it sounds better than many of the other FoMoCo products in which it also appears.

Manu-matic shifting in V-6 Fusions (four-cylinder models do not offer a manual mode for their automatic) helps keep the motor in the meat of the powerband (and it won’t upshift at redline), but the lever movement itself is highly unpleasant, actuating with a thwack that’s followed about a half-second later by the shift itself. Ford claims that the system matches revs as it downshifts, but we didn’t notice much of that as we charged through the mountains and canyons that late fall afternoon, so if it happened at all, it is a subtle powertrain action and nothing like that of the wonderful, vocal downshifts found on the Jaguar XK and XF, for example. We did not have a chance to sample the four-cylinder/six-speed-manual combo.

Better Than Ever, But Better Than the Rest?
The Fusion is much improved from bumper to bumper, and it’s better prepared than ever to meet the high expectations of mid-sized sedan buyers. Surely, it will fare better in comparison tests than it has in the recent past. Just how much better remains to be seen, but at this point, we don’t see it beating the Mazda 6 or Honda Accord in the enthusiast-appeal department. But for those inclined to buy from American brands in order to help Detroit out of the current financial mess, it may indeed give the Chevy Malibu a good run for its American money. Prices will range from $19,995 for a four-banger, front-drive S model to $28,400 for an all-wheel-drive V-6 Sport when the Fusion goes on sale next spring.
