2020 Ford Fusion in Manchester

   

   
       

Overview

       

Although it's just in its second generation, the Ford Fusion is set to drive off into the sunset after the 2020 model year. That's because the Ford Motor Company plans to focus its manufacturing on trucks and SUVs, keeping just one car, the Mustang, in the lineup. Ford is sending the Fusion off in the right way by loading it with modern safety features, multimedia technology, and passenger amenities that make it an excellent choice among midsized sedans.

Trims

   

Ford offers the Fusion in four trim levels: the S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. The base S gets a 60/40-split folding rear seat, a 4.2-inch display screen for the infotainment system, Bluetooth wireless capability, Sync voice command for audio and phone, a four-speaker sound system, and Ford's Co-Pilot360 technology, which is a suite of advanced driver-assist technologies. Buyers of the S can add the Co-Pilot 360 Assist system, which upgrades to a larger (8-inch diagonal) touchscreen, integrated navigation, Ford Sync 3 voice controls, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an additional USB port, dual-zone automatic climate control, and adaptive cruise control. Next up, the SE trim comes standard with the 8-inch touchscreen, USB port, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus power-adjustable front seats, a six-speaker audio system, and satellite radio. The SE also offers an All-Wheel Drive package, which bundles AWD, heated front seats and exterior mirrors, and a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, which recycles vehicle exhaust to produce extra power. The SEL tacks on LED headlights, heated front seats, driver-seat memory functions, push-button ignition, and an 11-speaker premium audio system. At the top, the Titanium model is standardly equipped with heated and ventilated sport front seats, a sunroof, the Co-Pilot360 Assist package, and a 12-speaker Sony premium audio system.

   
   

   

Mechanical Features and Fuel Economy

   

The Fusion has discontinued the V6 option of the prior year and currently offers three engines, two of which use Ford's innovative EcoBoost technology. The base engine is a 173 horsepower 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder that is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The SE trim upgrades to a 181 hp turbocharged EcoBoost 1.5-liter engine. The top-notch engine is a turbocharged EcoBoost 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that puts out 240 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque; this engine comes standard on the Titanium trim but is an optional upgrade on the SE and SEL. For fuel economy, the EPA has rated the 1.5-liter EcoBoost for 23 mpg city/34 mpg highway, while the 2.5-liter is rated for 21 mpg city/31 mpg highway, and the 2.0 liter EcoBoost delivers 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway.

   
   

Safety

   

The '19 Fusion was awarded a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the '20 Fusion is expected to receive the same accolade. This well-made sedan proves to be an exceptionally safe vehicle, as even the base model comes standard with Ford's Co-Pilot 360 technology, which includes blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, forward collision mitigation, automatic high beams, and a rearview camera. The Fusion also has FordPass Connect availability, which allows you to remotely control certain features (ignition, stop, lock/unlock) from your smartphone.
