The all-new Ford Fusion will arrive in North America in late fall, and we know you’re already anxious for that day to come. And antsy. Believe us, we might be even more excited about you getting behind the wheel than you are! That’s because the Fusion exemplifies one of the many ways we are able to Go Further. It’s a global car, so it strikes a chord with a worldwide audience. It also points to the Blue Oval moving in the right direction as a company, as well as to it building new products that make a statement.
The Go Further theme can also be explored through the new Fusion engineering and technology, and also with its design, one that feels athletic, but looks elegant. “It visually communicates that Fusion is going to drive as exceptionally as it looks,” noted Chris, who, with his team of designers, created a vehicle that represents an advancement in midsize family sedans.
The Fusion will be the first sedan to offer gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. That means a pair of EcoBoost™ four-cylinder engines, while the hybrid will have an all-new 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine. The Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid, aiming to be the most fuel-efficient midsize car in the world, is anticipated to deliver more than 100 MPGe, a mile per gallon equivalency metric for electrified vehicles.
