Ford Fusion Given Redesign For 2016 Sprint Cup Season
- Updated: January 12, 2016
The Ford Fusion fielded by NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams this season will have a slightly different look, with changes to the front end of the car incorporated to more accurately resemble similar changes to the upcoming 2017 production model.
Officials with Ford Motor Co. unveiled the automaker’s 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entry Monday evening during the opening day of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
“There’s no mistaking we’re here to win races and championships,” Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance, said in a release announcing the new Fusion entry. “And we believe the new NASCAR Fusion will be a powerful tool in the hands of our teams and drivers. Aerodynamics are more important than ever at the speeds these cars run, so we used some of the best wind tunnel and computational fluid dynamics technology available to create this new Fusion. Fortunately, the Ford design team gave us a great car with which to start.”
It is the third body change for the Fusion, which has been Ford’s NASCAR premier series entry of choice since 2006. Since then, Ford drivers have won 71 times.
