The Fusion is positioned ahead of the smaller Fiesta and Focus but behind the larger and more expensive Taurus in Ford sedan lineup. If considering a crossover, both the compact Escape and mid-size Edge have higher starting prices, but offer more cargo room. The Fusion is also offered as a hybrid and plug-in hybrid, the largest and most expensive offered by Ford after the smaller C-Max models. The 2016 Fusion receives a redesigned center stack, a new S Appearance package that includes 18-inch ebony black wheels, fog lights, and a rear spoiler. A new SE Cold Weather package is now available with Power Code Remote Start system, heated cloth seats and all-weather floor mats.
The Fusion’s standard 2.5-liter I-4 engine produces 175 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque and delivers an EPA-rated 22/33 mpg city/highway. The more economical 181-hp, 185-lb-ft of torque 1.5-liter turbocharged I-4 delivers 25/36 mpg (24/36 without engine start/stop feature). The sedan’s most powerful engine option is a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 that churns out 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque and is the only engine option that can be paired with AWD (22/31 mpg) or the standard front-wheel drive (22/33 mpg). All engines are paired to a six-speed automatic. In Motor Trend testing, the 3,442-lb 2017 Ford Fusion SE with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine hit 60 mph in 9.1 seconds. The Fusion Hybrid is rated at 43/39 mpg while the Fusion plug-in hybrid can run on all-electric power for up to 20 miles and delivers 38 mpg combined city/highway.
The NHTSA issued the 2016 Ford Fusion its highest overall rating of five stars and the IIHS gave the second highest rating of “Acceptable” for the small overlap front crash evaluation and the highest rating of “Good” for the remaining crash evaluations: moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats. The lowest rating of “Basic” was issued for the front crash prevention evaluation for the Fusion’s ability to warn the driver of a possible collision but the sedan will not automatically brake for you. The Fusion may not have automatic braking (added for 2017) but with the Driver Assist package you’ll get blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist and driver monitoring, automatic high beams, and rain-sensing wipers. For additional safety, opt for the adaptive cruise control and the Forward Collision Warning system that will warn you of a potential collision and will ready the brakes in order to provide full responsiveness.
