When the 2006 Ford Fusion launches next month, it will do so with incentives. Yep, that's right, incentives on a brand new model introduction. Seen as a necessary move by Ford to promote its most important car launch in years given the heated employee discount battle among the domestic makes, the Fusion will carry a special interest rate of 3.9% as well as $500 down payment and $500 Ford Credit financing incentives. The Fusion, which replaces the Contour, will compete with the top sellers in its segment, Camry and Accord – definitely no easy task considering the two Japanese models sold a combined 813,760 units in U.S. last year.
