New Reveal At LA : Redesigned 2010 Ford Fusion, redesigned 2010 Mercury Milan

With the reveal of Ford's Mustang, there was 2 other Ford sedans. Ford revealed today at the LA Auto Show, the all new Ford Fusion and the slightly more luxurious Mercury Milan.

The new Ford Fusion gets new headlights, bulging hood and Ford's new traditional shape chrome grill. So over all, it looks a lot better than its predecessor, and more futuristic as well. As for engines, the all new Fusion gets Ford's brand-new Duratec 2.5L 4-cylinder unit that delivers an output of 175hp and 172 lb.-ft. of torque, 14hp more and 16 more lb.-ft. of torque than the preceding year's 2.3L unit. The 3.0LV6 engine has been reworked producing 19hp more and 23 more lb.-ft. of torque than before for a total of 240hp and 228 lb.-ft. of torque. And all new for this 2010 model, is a sporty 3.5L V6 with 263hp. There's also an all new hybrid version, which Ford claim that it gets atleast 5mpg than a Toyota Camry hybrid. Inside, the new Fusion gets all sorts of new technology, as such as Ford's new SmartGauge™, SYNC, SIRIUS® , Travel Link™ and Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert. The new Fusion will hit deals in spring 2009.
With it, comes this new Mercury Milan. Both cars share a lot in common, so instead we'll tell you what's different between them. The 2010 Milan gets its own redesign that includes new front and rear fascias. To our eyes, this is better-looking than the Ford. Also, Milan will only have 3 engine choices, where's the Fusion has 4. The sporty 3.5L V6 isn't included in the Milan.
