U.S. Auto Makers Look for Big 2012

It's been a long time since Ford has been known for innovative, market-setting cars, but the American giant is hoping to change that next month, when it unveils the new Ford Fusion at the Detroit Auto Show. Many industry analysts believe the Fusion could kick off a resurgent year for the Big Three -- Ford, Chrysler and Chevrolet. "We see the Americans coming out with a lot of product that’s not only new but very attention-grabbing,” said Aaron Bragman, a Detroit-based automotive analyst with IHS. More than 25 years ago, Ford revolutionized the sedan when it released the Taurus.

The new 2013 Fusion, though, has received stellar reviews from analysts who have gotten a sneak peek.
