Ford's new Fusion sedan has received a warm reception for its right-out-of-the-box styling, but that didn't stop the Michgan automaker from loaning a few 2013s out to tuners for the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas.
We were particularly fond of these two Fusions that graced the automaker's stand at the aftermarket and accessory show.
Ford Fusion SE by Ice Nine Group
The green Ice Nine-customized Fusion looked almost lizard-like with its shiny metallic paint applied by Detroit customizer Ice Nine.
Starting with a 2013 Fusion SE 1.6-liter six-speed manual model, Ice Nine installed a cold air induction kit and an exhaust for added performance. To boost the Fusion's handling, a modified spring and strut setup is complemented by HR&D slotted rotors and 19-inch Ford Racing alloy wheels.
Setting off the "Green Pearl" paint is a 3dCarbon body kit and a carbon fiber rear wing.
Ford Fusion Titanium Sport Touring by MRT Performance
Ford turned to Plymouth, Michigan-based MRT Performance to customize its range-topping Fusion Titanium all-wheel-drive model.
MRT installed its own vented hood and custom head and tail lamps before turning to the Fusion's underpinnings. A bespoke air suspension and performance brakes combine with a sport exhaust system to deliver a little more performance to the new four-door.
Inside, custom accent lighting and a Kicker audio system finish the look.
