Ford has every angle covered with its stylish new Fusion mid-size sedan. For the best fuel economy possible, the Fusion Energi Hybrid can be driven up to 20 miles using only electric power. For a sportier ride, there’s also the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder motor that provides 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. That engine is available on the SE model and standard with the Titanium and Platinum trims. However, for even better performance, the Fusion Sport sedan comes with a 325-horsepower V6 engine and all-wheel drive. When you’re picking out your new Fusion, rest easy knowing you can have it just how you want it.
Gone is the MyFord Touch system used in last year’s Fusion models, and in comes the Sync infotainment system. Quicker response times and larger virtual controls make this system more user-friendly and easier to command. In addition, you can upgrade to Sync 3, which provides an even larger 8-inch LCD touch screen and enhanced voice-recognition technology. With a Sync Connect-equipped vehicle, you can use Ford pass to remotely start, lock, unlock, or simply locate your vehicle in a crowded parking lot. This technology even allows you to pre-program when you would like your Fusion to start, so it’s ready when you are.
Every Fusion sedan comes standard with traction and stability control, a rearview camera, antilock brakes, multiple airbags, and Ford’s MyKey technology, which lets you set guidelines for secondary drivers, such as disabling the radio for teen drivers if seatbelts are not engaged. In addition, the new Fusion offers Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. This advanced technology uses sensors to detect possible frontal collisions and can give you visual and audible warnings of the impending collision. And if you ignore these warnings, the braking system can automatically engage in order to help prevent or mitigate the potential collision.
