Did you watch the Ford Fusion Super Bowl commercial by Rob Riggle and James Franco? The ad was released at the beginning of 2014, and these two celebrities played their part along with excellent graphics to catch the viewers’ attention. However, the biggest celebrity in the commercial was a real stunner, the car itself.
The Ford Fusion could be one of the best selling cars in the U.S. in 2014! This forecast was made in an article published on the business news and analysis website, Thestreet.com in 2013. According to the website, this Ford model is in short supply these days, and a lack of inventory has led to dipping sales. The new line of Fusion is expected to produce around 100,000 cars annually.
The Manufacturing History of the Fusion
Ford Motor Company has been manufacturing close to 250,000 Fusions every year at its plant in Hermosillo, Mexico. But the production was not keeping pace with the increasing demand for this midsize sedan. Midway through 2013, sales of this car went up by 13 percent, which made the Fusion one of the fastest selling cars in America.
Later, in August of 2013, the company put up an auto plant in Flat Rock, and Michigan started manufacturing the Fusion. The plant is located near Detroit, where Ford had previously produced the Mustang line. The size of the plant is 66-acres and it has 3,100 workers.

The facts and statistics discussed above can help you understand the rich legacy of the Fusion, and your intent to buy this car may prove to be a great decision. However, you may have dilemma about the pricing and your budget, and rightly so. A brand new Ford Fusion is definitely an expensive buy.
