2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

Ford unveiled the new Fusion for the 2010 model year. The vehicle receives a much needed visual refresh with its trademark tri-bar grill being expanded drastically to dominate the front end. Gone is the bucktoothed lower chrome grill bars, having been replaced with thinner horizontal slats and a chrome surround.

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

The next Fusion can be spec'd with any of four distinct powertrains: a 2.5-liter four-banger, a 3.0-liter V-6, a 3.5-liter V-6, or a gas-electric hybrid. We're not sure why Ford has two V-6 options, especially because the two engines' outputs are only separated by a mere 23 ponies (240hp vs 263hp).

The 2009 Nissan 370Z Coupe is a fantastic example of "the more things change, the more they stay the same." The 370Z features all-new smaller dimensions, new sheet metal, and a bigger, more powerful powerplant, yet it manages to retain the essence that makes a Z car.
