Remember how you all mocked me for my earnest proclamation that the 2013 Ford Fusion would be a “game changer”? Well, January looks to be a promising prelude to my inevitable vindication, as far as sales goes.
Yes, one month in is hardly enough time to draw any conclusions, but the Fusion is off to a strong start. While the perennial favorite Toyota Camry is way out in front, with 31,897 units sold, the Fusion is nipping at the heels of the second place Honda Accord. The Accord sold 23,924 units, with the Toyota Corolla/Matrix (they’re grouped together) in third with 23,822 sold.
22,399 Fusions went out the door in January, while the 2013 Honda Civic held off the Nissan Altima for 5th place. You can check out the top 20 table here.
