Our spy photographers have snapped a glimpse of the forthcoming 2013 Ford Fusion. The Mondeo-based sedan looks to have lifted lighting inspiration from the Ford Evos Concept that the automaker debuted at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show. With thin, slit-like projection lenses and a very vertical grille, the 2013 Fusion looks to bring quite a bit more attitude to the table than the current model. Right now, the Fusion is built in Mexico, but there's some indication that the model may shift to a U.S. plant in the near future as part of the current negotiations between Ford and the United Auto Workers.

At this stage in the vehicle's development, it's unclear exactly what Ford will offer in terms of powertrain options or what the inevitable hybrid variant will bring to the table when it arrives. We are told that Ford will likely show off the first real look at the 2013 Fusion at January's Detroit Auto Show. Stay tuned.

      It's good that they want to bring production back to the US... more companies should do the same !!

      I think the current Fusion is a beautiful car. It deserves to be #1 in my book. I hope the new one looks good as well.

        God, I hope not. That is as uncohesive as the gen2 Mazda6. I like the nose but not the rest.

          The second gen Mazda6 is a great looking car, I have no idea what you are talking about.

          huh, gen 2 mazda6 has some problems but its design is brilliant. I'm concerned about the that fusion hump though. everything else looks nice.

        That's not the car I'd design and I'm not big on Ford but I got to give credit where it's due and this new Fusion is a solid "A". Looks like it cost's $10,000 more than a Camry or Subaru.

      I'm really looking forward to this car coming out. AWD please! And if you're gonna do a black spacer on the a pillar, at least put a piece of glass there and not just that crappy looking flat black stuff. I am seriously considering buying this car when it comes out.

      I have actually seen the car, and it does borrow heavily from the EVOS concept. to me the front end and a slight Aston Martin type grille and grille opening. the back is pretty sleek and C pillar sweeps back nicely. It is going to be a nice looking car. \The MKZ however, has a very sporty new front end, but the C pillar is much different then the Fusion's

      i always liked the wide stance and clean lines of the Fusion, the giant chrome grille always lost me, though. hope it's getting the axe

      Me thinks AutoBlog needs to review the meaning of the word "reveal".

      Can't wait to see what they come up with! I really hope they make this basically a Mondeo with tiny tweaks for the U.S market. I also agree and hope a wagon version joins the lineup, in addition to an AWD variant.
