The Ford Fusion is a dead machine as the Blue Oval moves into the future without a single passenger car in its US lineup -- save for the trusty Mustang . But the company doesn't want the sedans sitting around, so it's pushing some aggressive deals on the Fusion for new buyers.

According to a bulletin sent to dealers, which CarsDirect first reported on Monday, buyers nationwide can take advantage of 72-month financing with 0% APR.
