While the 2016 release of the Ford Fusion was a success, there was still a lot left to desire when it came to electric power and security features. Ford has recognized the yearning of the fans and has added a lot more to the 2017 Ford Fusion. Now, the Ford Fusion has features like Enhanced Park Assist, Auto Stop and Start Technology, and a smart Lithium-Ion battery that charges within 2.5 hours.
Ten Miles on Electric Power
One of the most notable features of the 2017 Ford Fusion is the fact it can run on electric power for 10 miles and then quickly switch to a fuel efficient 2.0 liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine. According to Ford, the battery can charge in just 2.5 hours overnight and the car will be ready for driving in the morning. Note that the battery now is a Lithium-ion battery in the Energi model, which is a plug-in hybrid version.
Enhanced Park Assist
Another great feature is Ford’s Enhanced Park Assist, which is an upgrade of the previous Park Assist feature. Now, drivers can park parallel and perpendicular with the help of the alerts given out by the ultrasonic sensors on all four sides of the car.
Auto Stop and Start Technology
The 2017 Ford Fusion is also equipped with the Auto Stop and Start functionality which allows the engine to shut down when the car is idle. Once you press the accelerator pedal, the engine restarts. During the process, your car saves both on fuel and electric power.
Truly, the 2017 Ford Fusion looks classy and is now more powerful and feature-rich. Visit one of the Ford dealers serving Fort Bliss today and drive away with the all-new Ford Fusion.
