Ford Hopes ‘Safety’ and ‘Fusion’ Go Together


The Detroit Bureau - August 29, 2012

In 1957, Ford said “Safety doesn’t sell.” Today, Ford is count­ing on an array of advanced safety gear to help sell the 2013 Fusion sedan.

Find out what the new Ford Fusion has on board.

A full suite of safety fea­tures is being made avail­able on the 2013 Fusion. The menu will include a Blind Spot Infor­ma­tion Sys­tem with cross-traffic alert, adap­tive cruise con­trol and for­ward col­li­sion warn­ing with brake sup­port, Lane-Keeping Sys­tem with Dri­ver Alert Sys­tem, Active park assist, and a rear-view cam­era sys­tem.

The 2013 Ford Fusion will also get an updated ver­sion of the high-tech Sync sys­tem, which has been tai­lored in response to cus­tomer crit­i­cism to include knobs for key con­trols — some­thing less likely to result in dri­ver distraction.
