2013 fusion

We are in the process of purchasing a 2013 Ford Fusion hybrid. I know that they can be towed 4 down. Problem is that Blue Ox does not list a tow plate for the 2013 model year although the make them for the 2012 models. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Blue Ox used my Acadia to prototype the base plates for that model, back when it was brand new in 2007. They did a heck of a job and I got a free ride.

I just got a pm from Ignatz. He is at the Blue OZ Factory and they are installing his base plate and they gave him a tow bar and a loaner car to use while he's there.
Good for him and great of Blue OZ.

I just rented a 2013 Fusion Hybrid. Nice car. Not much for trunk space though. Sure beats the Toyota Prius........
