Why all the red? Because dealers reporting from the front lines told Ford that consumers were drawn to the color red on the Fusion, particularly in the interior.
Ford will also offer a $300 trunk-mounted spoiler and a navigations sytem for less than $2,000 on SE and SEL models.
The Blue Oval is also working with Roush on a separate appearance package for the Mustang, and has authorized aftermarket company 3dCarbon to sell body kits for the Fusion.
It's all fine and dandy to tweak the Fusion's appearance to appeal to consumer tastes, but we're distressed at Mark Fields telling Motor Trend that the company's new 250-hp, 3.5L V6 would not be seen under the hood of a Fusion anytime soon. Sigh...
