2013 Ford Fusion Available For Purchase September 3

2013 Ford Fusion Available For Purchase September 3

You can’t buy it yet, but the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion is starting to seep into dealer inventory listings and because of that, we can confirm that you will be able to buy one as early as September 3.

York Ford, a dealership in Massachusetts, has three Fusions listed on its site and confirmed that at least one of them would be for sale at that date. Ford’s consumer site has yet to release that information, so it isn’t clear if other dealers will receive their allotment before the store we spoke with.

Regardless, the automaker is likely to start slashing prices on the soon-to-be outdated 2012 model as its handsome successor approaches. With a starting MSRP of $22,495 for the Fusion S, customers will already be paying close to a $2,000 premium for the new car.

Along with its genteel appearance, the new car is going to offer better fuel economy, but that efficiency comes with a lot of sacrificed power. At it’s most powerful, the 2012 armed with a 3.5-liter V6 offers 263 hp whereas the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine for 2013 only offers 237.

There are still plenty of 2012 models sitting on dealer lots, and it’s standard practice for Ford to offer discounts on those models when the next year is available, based on the ratio of new to old cars. This all boils down to the fact that anyone thinking of buying a Fusion should wait until late August when the company is sure to feel more pressured than is does now.

    I spoke with a Ford dealer yesterday, they do not know when the Fusion will be available.

    Here it is Sept 22 and two local Ford dealers have told me they don’t have any 2013 Fusions and don’t know when they will be arriving.  They are quick to say they have good rebates available on 2012 Fusions – if that’s the car you want, this might be a good time to get serious about buying a new 2012 Fusion.  But I think the difference between 2012 and 2013 is enough that I’m more interested in the 2013s.   In the meantime, I’ve looked at the 2013 Malibu and it is a very tempting car which I might just go ahead and get because I’m getting no love from Ford dealers on 2013 Fusions.

    Same here. I’ve been waiting & waiting to buy a car until this came out & I’m really getting tired of waiting. I have the 2013 Sonata & 2013 Altima in the running & may just get one of those if the Fusions aren’t available by the end of the month as the dealers I’ve spoken too say they “should” be. Then I’ll have to order the one I want & wait some more b/c most of the dealers around here are just ordering the low end version at first. It better be worth the wait.

    I’m in the same position. Two others I have given some consideration are the Kia Optima and the Buick Verano. Really liked the ride,drive, and quietness of the Buick but would like to drive this new Fusion before I make my final decision.

    If you are not look for the hybrid, I do not know where you live, but if you live in Florida, Mullinax Ford. 1810 E Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy, Kissimmee fl,  (407) 846-6000  has 2.

    You should have place the order earlier, because they are going to make the ones that people order already first.  You dealer should have told you, that you could place order than. This way you would get the car, and not have wait even longer.  I placed my order in May of this year, and I was supost to get it on Oct 8. I am still waiting.

    Ha!  I live in Minneapolis, MN, and have a 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium (Tuxedo Black) on order since October 8th.  The dealership had to coordinate a 3-way dealer trade for me to get my car; it should arrive tomorrow (Halloween) for me to pick up. 

    I sold my former car to a private party back on October 8th so have no car to drive.  The Ford dealership gave (i.e., no cost to me) me a 2013 Lincoln MKS to drive (with gas) until my Fusion comes in.  (Try one of those out — beautiful car.)  I really like the Lincoln ($54,000 sticker price), but actually prefer the Fusion because the Lincoln has a lot of features I don’t want – like park assist.  : )

    I say, wait for the Fusion to arrive and don’t buy something else.  I also wouldn’t waste my time on any other model other than the Titanium – the SE and SEL are completely different compared to the luxury of the Titaniums.  If you doubt what I say, test drive one of each and you will see the difference.

    A 2013 Malibu is nothing like a 2012 Fusion… Just rented one for 10 days and drove it 2000 miles. Sad to see we as Americans own that company. Second I was told 1st week of October for the 2013 Fusion. Hold tight its only around the corner.

  • Mrvazquez85

    The some of the 2013 ford fusion have been release in some dealers, but not the hybrid (basic).  I placed an order for 1 ford fusion hybrid in May, and two months later they told me it would arrive at the dealer on October 8. It’s October 28, and they told me that it is still waiting for shipment.  I believe these cars may not be out to late November by the look of it.  I had a lease and I turned it in July 13, and did not get a car. I been waiting for this car, but my patience is growing thin.
