Ford's Fusion mid-size sedan has earned the Fleet Car of the Year award for the fifth time in six years in an honor given by Automotive Fleet and Business Fleet based on feedback from fleet managers.

The Fusion was named as the top fleet car on a ballot of 44 cars eligible for the award.

"With 33 percent of Fusion sales made to commercial, government, and rental customers, the Fusion is a key fleet vehicle in the Ford lineup," said Ford's Fritz Ahadi, general manager of commercial and government sales operations.

Ford has been providing light updates to the Fusion since the car entered its second generation wit hthe 2013 model year. Ford added the 1.5L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine for the 2014-MY, and new standard features for the 2015-MY such as configurable daytime running lamps, six-way power adjustable passenger seats (Fusion SE), and a standard rear-view camera.

The 2016-MY Fusion will add a redesigned center stack, which offers a simplified user experience with SYNC screen and mechanical buttons.
