That's excellent news.. the Fusion is competitive in the midsize family segment.

I guess it remains to be seen how the recent crash test debacle will affect triplet sales. I am rooting for them to fix whatever the problem is and show an improvement for next year's tests. As for the enhancements coming, it's nice to see continuous improvement remain important at Ford, as it should be at all 3 domestic companies. We cannot stand still for a second.
