One of the customized Ford models presented at Los Angeles Auto was a Fusion with Galpin Auto Sport. A performance suspension keeps the 19-inch wheels and Nitto Invo tires glued to the road. Inside, a Katzkin leather interior, features a six-point roll cage, leather and suede steering wheel and GAS custom audio system.
For 2008, the Ford Fusion gets a Sport Appearance Package that helps it stand out from the pack, both inside and out. Available on the SE and SEL models, the new package lets Fusion owners add custom details to make their favorite car look even better.
After 10 years of hydrogen research, Ford will attempt to set the world land speed record in a hydrogen fuel cell powered Ford Fusion. The vehicle to break the speed record is a Fusion Hydrogen 999 fuel cell car, a collaboratively engineered racer with Ballard, Roush and Ohio State University.
Several tricked-out Ford Fusions will be on display next week at the 2006 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, where 2,000 specialty-equipment and new-vehicle manufacturers will gather to unveil new customization trends and technology.
