Belonging to a well-known series of midsize sedans, Ford Fusion has not changed significantly over the past few years. However, it seems that Ford has been preparing the new 2018 model which will once again represent a great combination of elegant design and excellent driving dynamics.
Since the current 2017 Ford Fusion is still present, we can compare the new 2018 Fusion to it and perhaps say that you could not hope for some radical changes. The base version will offer standard features such as 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights and LED taillights. Staying faithful to its elegant and sleek design, this new 2018 Fusion seems to have got a touch of aggressive design too. Compared to the previous model, the 2018 Fusion has got a more aerodynamic shape and seems a bit sharp and edgy. A perfect combination of luxurious and sporty design, isn’t it? This four-door sedan has wide-opening doors and seems lower than the previous one. The only small change that we have notices is found in the front part of this vehicle. There is an oval grille with horizontally-oriented metal slats and the headlights are a bit redesigned. All in all, a well-rounded vehicle, perfect for everyday driving and long family rides.
When it comes to interior, the new 2018 Ford Fusion remains comfortable and safe vehicle. The high-quality materials will be used and the leather seats will be optional. The seats will be adjustable, especially the headrest in the front seats. The driving on an open road will go smooth and the external noise will not be such a problem. In terms of safety, you can expect standard options such as adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation, parking systems and many more. The cabin is spacious enough and the only possible problem could be for the taller passengers in the rear seats. Steering-wheel buttons are easy to use and offer numerous options as well as the climate control buttons and a screen on the dashboard. Technological equipment such as infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, voice commands, navigation, satellite radio, Apple Car Play and Android Auto will not be left out this time, that’s for sure.
We have been informed that the 2018 Ford Fusion will offer several versions when it comes to engine. The base version will be using a 2.5-litre engine. However, the more powerful option offers a 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine with 181 horsepower and the other one offer a 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine and 245 horsepower, also used in 2019 Ford Fusion SE, 2019 Ford Escape, 2019 Ford Focus. The base version will be based on front-wheel-drive system, but all of the mentioned versions will come with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
