Let me tell you about this hot little daddy of a car. I love it everyone loves it. You will get compliments! Teenagers complimented me while they were playing a basketball I heard it through the sun roof. Not even joking. Get the pretty white not the basic white. Also got rear ended and the other car was totaled but the fusion was still driveable. Would definitely buy another but with the nav screen. I just hate touch sensitive buttons.
2013 Ford FusionAnonymous - Corpus Christi, TX03/05/2015
I have had my car for a year now. When I was looking to trade in my old car a co-worker of mine has a brother who works for Ford Corporate and they told me out of all the cars/trucks they make, the best was the new (2013) Fusion. So, I purchased a 2013 Ford Fusion SE EcoBoost. I love my car! I wasn�t sure I would but I do. It drives great, I feel safe in it. The standard options that came with it are perfect for me. I get compliments all the time about my car. Most people seemed shocked it�s a Ford. It�s gets great gas mileage which has saved me some money. I would recommend this car to friends and family. This is the 3rd car I have bought from Car Max and I have had a great experience all three times!
Ford Fusion S
2013 Ford FusionTracy Van Laten - Schererville, IN12/22/2016
I am the original owner of the Ford Fusion S in blue. It has been modified with a new grill and has brand new infinity speakers, instead of the stock speakers. The rear spoiler was also added early on, and gives the car a sharp look. I had a great experience with this car. Unfortunately, things change and the car no longer met my daily needs, which is the only reason I sold it. The car is up to date on all its recalls and has low mileage for its year.
-this car has a lot of leg room and is wider than most others of its variety. This means it's not only comfortable, but less likely to roll over.
-The traction control is very responsive and the car runs well in the snow.
-It can fit four adults comfortably, and five people total.
2013 Ford Fusion Overview
Just about every automaker has striven to develop and release an affordable mid-size sedan. Ford is no exception, as the Fusion is a four-door, five-passenger vehicle that fills the gap between its compact Focus and Fiesta models, and the Taurus, Ford's full-size sedan. The Fusion was first produced in August 2005 and is currently in the midst of its second generation, which began with the 2013 model year. This post will take a closer look at the inaugural model of the Fusion's second generation, the 2013 vehicle.
2013 Ford Fusion History
The Ford Fusion was first produced in 2005. It was introduced as a replacement to Ford's now-defunct Contour, as well as the fourth generation of its Taurus model.
The Fusion was originally built on the automaker's CD3 mid-size platform, a platform that was actually designed by Mazda and intended for vehicles with front- and/or all-wheel drive.
The 2013 Fusion was completely redesigned and is built on the more rigid CD4 platform with the launch of its second generation.
The 2013 Fusion is offered in the following models: S, SE, Titanium, and two hybrid options, making the Fusion stand out when it comes to this sort of efficiency in the mid-size market. The 2013 hybrid and plug-in hybrid models were lauded with the 2013 Green Car of the Year awards from the Green Car Journal.
How It Drives
The 2013 Fusion is larger than other vehicles in its class - and it drives and handles accordingly. Though handling is good and the ride is comfortable, drivers need to allow enough space for tight turns, U-turns, and parallel parking, for example. While this may be off-putting to some drivers in the market for a mid-size sedan, keep in mind Ford's goal with the Fusion - to provide affordable family transportation in a mid-size platform. Considering those standards, the Fusion is hard to beat.
Used 2013 Ford Fusion Value
The original MSRP of the 2013 Ford Fusion was $23,830. Fair market price for the Fusion S model with front-wheel drive is currently valued at about $13,100. Price, however, is subjective based on factors such as mileage, vehicle condition, and driver history.
Design & Performance
As is a theme throughout this entry, the Ford Fusion looks and feels big. While it's only about one inch longer than the first-generation of Fusion models, there's an extra five inches between the wheelbases, the longest in the mid-size class of vehicles.
The 2013 Fusion is also about 0.7 inches wider and more than an inch taller than previous versions.
Ford offers a variety of powertrain options with the 2013 Fusion, allowing drivers to pick and choose based on their performance preferences.
Fusion models equipped with the 1.6 liter EcoBoost engine can achieve up to 25 mpg in the city and up to 37 mpg on the highway.
The standard 2.5L engine is rated at 22 mpg city and 34 mpg highway, still good fuel economy.
Powertrain & Engine
The 2013 Fusion is available in various four-cylinder engine configurations, the standard being the 2.5L Duratec. This differed from previous versions of the Fusion, which also offered V6 options. The 2.5L Duratec generates up to 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque.
As far as the transmission, the 2013 Fusion is offered with a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic and a continuously variable transmission, or CVT, for hybrid models.
Body Style & Interior Comfort
The first thing that those in attendance at the 2012 North American International Auto Show noticed when the 2013 Fusion was officially unveiled was its sharp look. Its grille, horizontal lines, and wraparound lamps were particularly lauded.
The Titanium model offers leather seating, heated front seats, and HD radio for a value-added driving experience.
Though larger than other mid-size vehicles, its style allowed it to stand out among the competition.
On the interior, there's the MyFord Touch user interface. A 12-speaker sound system and dual-zone auto climate settings are other optional features.
