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.
