Breaking embargos before an autoshow is the norm and the Detroit show is no different. Joining alongside the Mercedes-Benz SL and Dodge Dart is the new Ford Fusion. A Czech website Auto Forum have gotten two pictures of the new Fusion before its debut at Detroit.

The pictures, while a bit pixelated, reveal how much infulence the Ford Evos concept had on the overall design. From the hexagonal grille, front headlights, fog lamps, and lower air inlet, the front end of the new Fusion shares many components with the concept.

We'll learn more about the new Fusion tommrow morning at the Detroit Auto Show.

Wow. Very sleek with great details and a dash of sport. I can't wait to see the side profile, rear, interior and specs. Do you think we'll see all this at midnight tongight or will we have to wait till tomorrow morning?

I prefer the Malibu front end, the Fusion to me is a bit ugly. Need more photos in and out.

Wow, that is stunningly good looking. The side kinda reminds of a Citroen C5.

Hot dayum that looks $15K more expensive than every other midsize family sedan on the market. It rivals the A6 in design, IMO.

1.6 EcoBoost gets stop-start and 26/37 MPG! Better than my Focus. And six-speed manual, too!

This thing looks better than a Jag XF: http://www.autoblog....hybrid-100-mpg/

That's gorgeous! Love the slender headlamps, the low, long look, the Aston Martin-esque grill, the whole thing inside and out looks awesome.

I officially retract my earlier statement. This thing does not dither with past glory, it forges ahead, and looks fantastic doing it. Best looking Ford sedan in many a moon.

I really do like the interior now that I've seen it. It's definitely a cut above the Malibu interior and not like anything else in the segment. Not digging the exterior, maybe thoughts will change when seen in person but I have to say that it just seems derivative of a bunch of other cars (Jag XF, Audi A7, Aston, etc) to me for some reason. Perhaps not unoriginal or uninspired for a Ford, but not exactly sitting quite right either.

Looks good, the grille is a big change from current Fords, so that is a little odd, but it looks nice all around. The 47/44 mpg hybrid is awesome, that blows away the competition. Odd that they have both a 2.5 liter four and an ecoboost 1.6 with the same power, they could just offer one or the other, plus the 2.0 Ecoboost.
