In 2017, Ford has made good use of its vast experience from many prior years of being a leader in the European market. The Ford Fusion's design is sophisticated and it handles wonderfully. You will love the ride that the turbocharged four-cylinder engine provides. It accelerates very quickly and yet is still easy on gas mileage.
Lots of buyers will find satisfaction with this 1.5 engine and its 181 horsepower. Go for the 2.0-liter turbo with four cylinders and 270 lb. ft. of torque if you want higher performance.
For 2017, you can also opt for a 2.7-liter V6 with twin turbocharger. With this engine, you get 325 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. All-wheel drive is standard on the Fusion Sport model, so you get no torque steer and the feel of hard acceleration without being thrown back against the seat.
The Ford Fusion for 2017 is exemplary in the handling department. Its steering is fine-tuned and it comes with an excellent suspension system. Its tires grip the road perfectly. It has never been so easy to take a sedan around curves in a smooth and easy manner.
In fact, no matter how fast you are driving or what curve you are taking, this vehicle steers evenly so that you and your passengers will hardly know the difference. It is stable like a sedan and yet much more sporty than any other vehicle in the same category.
The Ford Fusion for 2017 is now more stylish and yet more functional than it has ever been before and is getting second looks everywhere it goes.
On the outside, it almost reminds one of the Audi A7 because of its subtle roofline arch. Smart LED lights only enhance that silhouette. Viewing it from the side you see that it is sleek and classy yet at the same time a true Ford with all the history that comes with it.
Some other exterior additions are LED taillights that are bisected, curvy new headlights, and a lower front face that is more airy and open. It now has a broader and more angular grille that lends it a sporty air. With the Sport model, there is an even more assertive front bumper, a shiny black grille, and deeper ventilation intakes.
The interior of the Fusion is also very dramatic. Like a Volvo, it has a storage bin that is opened at the sides beneath its climate controls. The control center stack looks less like the Focus and Fiesta and more upscale and simple. Now there is room for a pocket to store one's cell phone, a bigger console bin, and a longer and more comfortable armrest in the middle.
A comfortable sedan packed with the most advanced technology is just what drivers need to make their daily lives better. The 2017 Ford Fusion comes with a newly redesigned interior which provides drivers with a sleek cockpit.
The Fusion is about 16 feet long with a wheelbase of 112.2 inches. The trunk is very spacious as well, with 16 cubic feet of storage.
The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport in particular incorporates a long list of optional and standard equipment to choose from. Among this list, you can expect to see things in the Fusion Sport like:
The Platinum level of the Ford Fusion allows for more luxury with quilted leather covering the door armrests, seats, instrumental panel, center console, door panels and steering wheel (which is made out of premium Venetian leather).
Given the technological updates of the Ford Fusion for 2017, you will drive it with a sense of complete ease and comfort. It combines a fun driving experience such as you would get in a sports car with the best in current safety technology that you would get in a family car. That means you will be able to enjoy the ride and know that you and your passengers are as safe as it is possible to be while on the road.
The interior of the vehicle is well designed and has active headrests, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert system, and a new stop-and-go capability. You can choose to select the new inflatable rear seat belts for an even greater sense of security. There is also an assist for detecting pedestrians and for warning a driver who is starting to tire or get sleepy.
Every model has a rearview camera along with monitors for blind spots and cross traffic warnings that allow you to back out safely. The Titanium and Platinum trim levels include rear parking sensors as standard equipment. However, you can still opt for them on SE and Sport models.
You can choose a lane departure warning and lane keeping program on the Titanium, SE, and Sports levels. This gives you a greater sense of control just in case your vehicle veers from the lane you are in and starts to move to the next one.
When you purchase your new 2017 Ford Fusion in Kansas City, you will be getting the latest technologically sound safety features. In fact, the Ford Fusion has been awarded a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS.
