(Newser) – The 2010 Ford Fusion midsize model has won Motor Trend’s car of the year award, one of the most sought-after in the industry. Ford’s reboot of the Fusion model impressed judges with better fuel efficiency, an upgraded engine, and a new interior. Among the finalists were the Camry and Accord. The Fusion already is the best-selling car built by an American firm and the 10th best-selling car in America overall, the Detroit Free Press reports.
