Click above to view gallery of 2010 Ford Fusion spy shots, or click here to view video after the jump

Ford has already released an official image of the 2010 Fusion's new front end, as well as unveiled the heavily revised engine lineup for its mid-size sedan that now includes a new 2.5L I4, revised 3.0L Flex-Fuel V6, new 3.5L V6 and hybrid powertrain good for 38 mpg in the city. Reactions are split to the Fusion's new face, but we haven't seen official shots from any other angle and certainly have yet to view full-motion video of the final version.

Sharp-eyed Autoblog reader Jamieson, however, caught a Fusion prototype on the road this weekend and had the sense to whip out a recording device. After the jump you'll find the short video of Jamieson passing the Fusion prototype that shows the sedan's rear end and profile nicely, as well as the already seen front fascia. He also took pics, which we've added to our gallery of 2010 Ford Fusion spy shots below.

      She's not bad looking. But that 2.5L isn't "new" per se...
        • 6 Years Ago
        And neither are the rest of the engines. The 3.0L Duratec was the mid-level engine on the Taurus, starting in 1996. Sure, it's been upgraded a hundred times since then, but by your standards, its not new. Hell, the 3.5L has been in the MKZ since 2006, right? Guess it's not new.

        They're new for this car. The Fusion is based on the MKZ, but Ford chose not to give the Fusion the bigger V6. Now, with so much pressure from Nissan, Toyota, and Honda, to offer a larger engine in their standard sedan, Ford had to do it. I just wish they'd done it two years ago.

        Well, the Fusion's been on a roll lately with the accolades; let's hope this makes the car even more competitive.

      ew.

      Ugly.

      I rather have a Camry or Accord then this thing.

      It's also slower then both.

      Plus it looks too much American for me.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yea, seriously...too American? What does that even mean?

        I was just thinking how American cars really changed their styling recently. I think they tend to lean a bit European these days.

        Get off your soapbox.

      I can believe people are judging the car when they have only seen the front. Also, the new accord looks like a duck from behind and all together it looks like they took an egg for the cabin and just added 2 boxes on each end for a trunk and engine bay. ITS UGLY. But of course it "honda" so even it looked like a D3 car, which it doesn't they are better except crysler, but in the end, i think this may do well. I liked the fusion, was beyond quiet on the hiways, and with SYNC should be a good sell

      Just when everyone thought the current Fusion couldn't get any uglier...

      I'll take the infinitely better Malibu please. Or the Accord. Or the Sonata...or anything.

      The sad thing is, the is the best looking of the three. The best looking car is horribly ugly.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I'm glad you like the Malibu the way it looks because its going to look like that for a few years longer now. GM pushed back the redo of the Malibu one to two years.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Haha it's the Ford 9-3!
        • 6 Years Ago
        + 1

        thought i was the only one that saw that...ut really does look like it
      • 6 Years Ago
      Why oh why Ford?!

      They did a nice job on the front end integrating the corporate 3-bar grille. But I think they went a step back on the rear end making it look like a tweak five-hundred tail lights.
      • 6 Years Ago
      How about a Mazda 6s? Kthx
        • 6 Years Ago
        Actually, I think the only really ugly part about the front of this new Fusion is the chrome eyeliner above the headlights. If the headlights were pushed a little higher so there was no chrome to the sides, I would like the look of this car a little more.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I like it. It's more interesting, from the front at least, than the predecessor. The rear looks like it could be a focus or a Chevy, though.

      Do all these manufacturers suddenly lose their budget after the B-pillar these days? Malibu is just as boring from behind, especially compared with its dramatic nose.

        Looks great so far !
        • 6 Years Ago
        @Kumail
        rc:

        the malibu still looks tons better.
        • 6 Years Ago
        @Kumail
        Looks better than the bloated accord, appliance camry, and unfinished malibu.
      • 6 Years Ago
      So... they're going to be fitting the 3.5L engine in there, which (if I'm not mistaking) has the same mounting points as the 3.5L Ecoboost engine. Do I smell an SVT version coming soon?
      • 6 Years Ago
      looking good, im still up in the air bout them taillights though
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'll be a dissenter and say that I like it. I'm all for the new nose, and I think the rear end looks much more dynamic than the current model; it looks a lot like an older (early 2000s) Ford Mondeo, which is a good thing.
      Again, I hope this car has a class-topping interior and drives competitively, and I wish luck to Ford in selling this car (no sarcasm intended).
