Ford’s Fusion lineup has been a wild success right from the day it was first released. Back in 2016, the new styling quickly became a fan-favorite and this time around, Ford has made sure to add more comfort and features to the already slick-looking car. The 2017 Ford Fusion comes with added safety along with more power and agility.
Engine Power and Performance
First and the foremost, the 2017 Ford Fusion has two models: the Fusion Hybrid and the Fusion Hybrid Energi. The Energi is a plug-in hybrid version with a lithium-ion battery that can give you around 10 miles on electric power. Once the battery is depleted, the system quickly switches to the 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine. Ford claims that you can recharge the battery at night in just 2.5 hours. There is also a Platinum trim level available that has an additional exterior grille and 19-inch wheels, adding more appeal to the exterior.
Safety and Security Features
The 2017 Ford Fusion comes with a long list of safety features such as the Enhanced Park Assist that allow you to park perpendicular and parallel and the auto Stop and Start options. However, the latter can only be added to Ford’s 1.5 liter EcoBoost engine versions. This feature automatically shuts down the engine when it is idle and restarts it when you depress the accelerator, saving more energy and fuel in the process.
The all-new 2017 Ford Fusion certainly looks like a highly-capable car. Why not test it today by visiting a Ford dealer near Las Cruces today?
