2013 Ford Fusion going to NASCAR image

Ford has recently announced that the 2013 Fusion model will debut in NASCAR as a racecar, and the model’s prototype will be officially presented to the public on Tuesday afternoon, (January 24) at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

After making its debut as a production version at the 2012 NAIAS, the new generation of the Ford Fusion, or Mondeo as it will be known in Europe, is getting ready to enter NASCAR, and the prototype will be unveiled on Tuesday afternoon. According to the car manufacturer, the 2013 Ford Fusion NASCAR racecar will be presented at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and the model will be seen in NASCAR starting from next season.

The North American based automaker Ford didn’t announce any official details on the NASCAR Fusion racer and it probably won’t say anything about its performance, but as a reminder, the production version revealed in Detroit not too long ago will be coming with a 1.6 liter, four-cylinder engine with the company’s EcoBoost system, to get 37 mpg on highway, while the larger 2.0 liter EcoBoost will be offered in a performance version with paddle-shifted six-speed SelectShift Automatic (TM) transmission, 19 inch wheels and tires and all-wheel drive with the ability of sending addition torque to the rear wheels.
