    I read an article about the 2013 fusion hybrid. Supposed to be fantastic. Anyone have any idea on pricing and availability?

    Waiting to see if the 47/47/47 holds true seeing as Edmunds test of the C-Max ended up with a 33mpg average but MT says 44. If the car can attain 47 without hypermiling, that'd be something.

    Edmunds and consumer reports do really bad testing . We can expect motor trend and/or car and driver to try it head to head on the same day/course as the camry hybrid. Car and driver on the last set of hybrids found the camry closer to its epa than the ford during their "normal" driving.

    Saw a local add for $7000 off MSRP on the Fusion Hybrid yesterday. I think it was for the 2013. That would make it $20K starting. What are the available federal tax credits?

    That was probably for the 2012 and there are no tax credits for the fusion
