The car fits in a line of sedans by Ford (smallest to largest): A Ford Taurus, a recognizable sedan. ...

The Fusion was originally to be called the Ford Futura, but Ford lost a trademark lawsuit to the Pep Boys auto parts store, which has a line of tires under the Futura brand. American trademark law generally considers a name abandoned if the owner does not use it for three calendar years, and the long history of the name in the Ford line did not impress the court. Ironically, the Futura name is actually still used by Ford Australia, as a trim line for the Falcon. Another choice of name was "Falcon", but that would have caused much confusion with the long-running Australian Ford Falcon. Still that didn't prevent Ford from duplicating the name of the European Fusion, a mini-MPV based on the Ford Fiesta, slotted between the Fiesta and the Focus.

The Fusion also became the new body shape for Ford automobiles in NASCAR beginning in 2006, replacing the Ford Taurus.

It debuted at the 2006 Daytona 500, and won its first race a week later in California.

According to Ford, consumer response to the Fusion has exceeded their expectations [1].


Also, AutoWeek magazine made a (tongue-in-cheek?) comment that Ford named the new sedan the Fusion only because its grille has a striking resemblance to the Gillette Fusion Razor shaver. In fact, the three-bar grille, which includes two matching bars below the bumper/fascia and is thus a five-bar design, was first seen on a concept car called the Ford 427, unveiled in 2003 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
