2 more mpg is better...right? Thousands less in price is better....right?
I'm talking about the 2012 Camry. Let's compare what is available right now as that is what I was talking about. When the new Fusion Hybrid gets here than we can compare but right now the current Fusion Hybrid is behind. And I think Toyota has a lot longer successful history with hybrid tech than Ford has via the Prius if I'm not mistaken.
If the Ford leapfrogs the Camry in the future I will readily admit it as I have no vested interest other than for discussion sake. You seem to have a hard time dealing with the here and now. Fusion Hybrid WAS better than the Camry Hybrid but the Camry has in your words leapfrogged the Fusion. Just accept for it for now.

I don't have a hard time accepting anything. All I said was the new Fusion should be even better than the current one and should put Ford back in the lead as far as MPG goes. You're the one that started doing comparisons and got all bent out of shape about it. I don't care either way and I don't have anything against the Camry hybrid. I'm just excited about the new technology.

Using that logic the next version Camry should leapfrog the Ford, and so it goes.

Yes, and it's called "improving the breed". This goes beyond hybrids, and even the cars themselves.
Who benefits? We the consumers do!
They can "leapfrog" themselves all they want. It's the buyers than benefit in the end.

Looks to me like Toyota will be playing catchup for the next several years. Guess we'll find out in 2012.

Well Fords playing catchup now, so I guess it will be Toyota's turn.

No, that is not all you said. You said "which would be amazing considering how far ahead it already is." You didn't explain how the currrent Fusion is so far ahead already(which it isn't) and just went on about the rumors you've heard about the future Fusion Hybrid. It appeared that you were failing to recognise the advances in mpg and the lower pricing of the Camry and still thought the current Fusion was ahead. That prompted my comment. I"m sorry if I offended you, it wasn't meant to.

Let's just wait until the 2013 Fusion arrives and we can revisit the issue.
