Each and every year Kelley Blue Book takes a good hard look at all the new sedans that have recently been introduced and compiles a list of the “10 Best Sedans Under $25,000”. It is a huge honor to make this list, and this year we are happy to say that the 2013 Ford Fusion has snatched the number five spot!
According to KBB.com, “Completely redesigned for 2013, the Ford Fusion mixes a stunning sense of style with impressive dynamics, and tosses in a roomy, well-appointed passenger compartment for good measure. With the choice of two EcoBoost engines plus hybrid and plug-in variants, this engaging midsize front-driver also can be packaged to perform.”
All of us here at Hassett are extremely excited to see the new Fusion get the recognition it deserves as it truly is a stunning car in every way. On the exterior, the new Fusion features a fresh, bold new look. And the interior of the Fusion is comfortable, eco-friendly, and loaded with cool features such as the SYNC system, available lane-keeping system, and ambient lighting.
As much as we would love to go on and on in this blog about how great the 2013 Fusion is, you really can’t fully understand it until you get behind the wheel. Stop by Hassett Automotive in Wantagh, New York and take one for a test drive today!
When you think safety, quality and value, does Ford come to mind? Well it should; our staff at Hasset Automotive is proud to say that Ford was the only brand to rank top five in every category of Consumer Report’s 2013 Car Brand Perception survey, and Ford took second place over all!
The survey measures seven different perception categories: quality, safety, value, performance, design/style, technology/innovation and environmentally friendly/green. The survey collected data from 1,764 adults that had at least one car in their household. Each category is weighted for the importance of that factor, quality being the most important and environmentally friendly being the least.
The two highest rankings for Ford were second in safety and third in value. This comes as no surprise, due to their long-standing reputation for delivering value to the customers, as well as being up-to-date with the latest and best safety features in their models.
Offering the most advanced technology and powerful V8 engines, Ford ranked fourth in quality, performance and technology/innovation. Ford has put a lot of effort into future development by designing more stylish vehicles and moving into the ‘green’ market. These efforts have boosted Ford into the fifth place spot for both design/style and environmentally friendly/green.
To test your own perceptions of Ford, come out to our dealership, located in Wantagh, NY, for a test drive today!
Earlier this month, the all new 2013 Ford Fusion was delivered to our dealership and we had a great time showing it off to so many people during the “Go Further with Ford” night. But for those of you who just couldn’t make it out to this event, Tim Coppola, the Lease Renewal Manager here at Hassett, has made this video just for you. Check out the video below as Tim points out some of the key features of the new Fusion, including its sleek Aston Martin like exterior and Ford’s MyTouch system.
