Ford takes more honors

 The 2013 Ford Fusion is already bringing home awards. The editorial staff of Autoweek has chosen Fusion for its Best in Show award at the North American International Auto Show  The selection is based on one compelling measurement - the car people will remember most five years from now, the magazine's editors said.  "It's very rare for a midsize sedan to win Best in Show," said Autoweek Editor Wes Raynal. "I think it's the first of a lot of awards the Fusion is going to win this year." The Fusion also was named the "The Best Production Car" by a panel of design professionals assembled by "Eyes on Design.  Five Ford models have been chosen as being the best buy for the money – the most of any automaker – by U.S. News & World Report. The 2012 Ford Edge, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus and Fiesta were selected for their quality and value. Ford won several  awards in the annual Polk Loyalty Award. Ford was honored  Overall Loyalty to Manufacturer; Overall Loyalty to Make; African-American Market Loyalty to Make; Compact SUV for the Escape; and Mid/Full Size Pickup for the F-Series truck lineup. The awards For Southfield-based Polk recognize manufacturers for superior owner loyalty performance, with loyalty determined when a household that owns a new vehicle returns to purchase or lease another new vehicle of the same model or make.
