Ford Fusion: Everything You Need To Know

The Ford Fusion is a mid-size car that was manufactured and marketed by the Ford Motor Company. It was produced in gasoline, gas/electric hybrid, and gas/plug-in electric hybrid variants.

The Fusion was manufactured at Ford’s Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly plant in Sonora, Mexico, alongside its rebadged variant the Lincoln MKZ, and formerly the Mercury Milan, both of which share its CD3 platform. The Fusion was updated for the 2019 model year with Ford’s “Co-Pilot 360” safety suite as standard on all models.

The suite includes automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot and rear-cross-traffic warning systems, automatic highbeams, and automatic wipers.

The 2020 Ford Fusion has tremendous versatility in a hotly contested segment, with four available powertrain options, one of which can be had with all-wheel drive, and two that are electrified.

Ford offers six trim levels, which range from basic to near luxury. The Fusion isn’t as special or refined as the Honda Accord or Mazda 6, but its crisp styling, comfortable ride, and roomy cabin make for a satisfying ride. Unfortunately, the Fusion is a victim of Ford’s push to angle away from the car market in favor of SUVs and trucks and 2020 will be its final model year.
