Chrysler has been pretty successful with its Bentley-inspired 300.

Many are expecting a similar reception for Ford’s Aston-like 2013 Fusion. The poor man’s ultra-luxury ride should now be even a stronger contender for top mid-size sedan going into the future.

The 240-hp Titanium version of the car offers paddle shifters and has a claimed 0-60 of 6.9 seconds. Looks like after two decades of dominance, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry just may continue to slip.

Experts are calling Ford’s new Fusion rollout “a bid to win, rather than just show up.”

More from Motoramic here:

“Based on a new platform Ford will build worldwide, the 2013 Ford Fusion rides on front McPherson-strut and rear multi-link suspensions. Compared to the outgoing model, the new Fusion’s rear multi-link has been revised to improve ride quality, while keeping the car’s overall European-inspired handling characteristics. Much of that on-road responsiveness is thanks to Ford’s electric power-assisted steering, one of the best in the industry, providing a confident weighting and progressive effort while dampening the excessive feedback from tortured roads.”
