Here's a couple from the Detroit show. They might be a little large, I had the resolution really high on my camera

Great pics! I am toying with this car or the Nissan Altima Hybrid. Any thoughts? I can get the Fusion Hybrid at invoice since my brother-in-law is a salesman at a nearby dealership. The tax credit (and I will qualify since I don't get hit by AMT and won't be affected by income phase out) is $950 more than the Altima. Plus, the features on the FFH seem far superior.

The Nissan Altima Hybrid can't even get as good MPG as my '09 FEH, so the Fusion Hybrid is the best choice hands down. Just look at the mileage logs at CleanMPG.com Here:
http://www.cleanmpg.com/index.php?page=garage&displayunits=MPG(US)&maxnum= All Scroll down to Hybrid Vehicles.

Every article that compares the Fusion Hybrid says it's the bang for the buck.

Gary,

Thanks for the advice. I ordered the FFH with rapid spec 502A, in White Platinum. I should have a VIN in about a week. Delivery was predicted at 8 weeks or less, with the salesman saying that customer ordered cars having priority. I guess they want to get the eager buyers while they can. I think at invoice (29,900) this car is a great deal. Of course, if at time of delivery there are any incentives, I will get those as well. But something tells me there won't be any factory deals this soon. On Edmunds.com, the "true market value" is OVER sticker. You can't say that about too many cars at this time.

You're the man frankieboy, best car and best price!

I just put the '09 FEH on the hypermile legend by getting the top percentage over EPA of all hybrids entered in the 3 month winter Challenge IV at Cleanmpg.com. The '09 FEH topped the Honda Civic and Insight hybrid and the Toyota Prius.

The only hybrid I think would top my '09 FEH is the '10 FFH your getting. Ford Rules the road again!
