2017Ford Fusion For Sale In Sault Ste Marie
If you weren't aware of the fact the Blue Oval used to be the owner of Aston Martin, the stunning styling of the 2017 Ford Fusion leaves you in no doubt design influences from that time linger on. Our love of all things crossover may have made it increasingly difficult for automakers to find homes for their sedans these days, but the midsize sedan segment is as competitive as it's ever been due to the quality of what's available. But even when faced by the very stiffest competition, the latest incarnation of the Fusion is still the model to beat as far as most industry observers are concerned.
As this second-generation of the Fusion first landed with us for the 2013 model year, the 2017 Ford Fusion benefits from what is a relatively mild refreshing for the new model year. The majority of upgrades happen on the inside of the car, although there are a few external styling enhancements to keep this stunning looking car as fresh as ever. With Ford doing so relatively little to the outside of the Fusion for the mid-cycle refresh, it really does tell you something; this is already a car that looks so good there's no point messing around with what is so obviously a successful formula. We might be going into the fifth model year of this second-generation, but this is still a design that looks as though it's just come off the designer's drawing board.
Inside the 2017 Ford Fusion you'll now find a redesigned center console based around a new rotary shift dial, which could be seen as another influence from the past as Ford also used to own Jaguar, and the rotary dial is a key feature of models like the XF. There's also a new media hub, a pocket for storing a cell phone, a bigger console bin, and a longer center armrest. The interior now feels more modern and even a touch more upscale than before, and there's a definite move away from the super-angular, fighter cockpit look of other Ford nameplates such as the Focus and Fiesta.
There's no shortage of choice when it comes to putting together the 2017 Ford Fusion that's just right for your needs. With five trims levels comprising of S, SE, Titanium, Sport and Platinum models, and four different engines there's a Fusion for most applications, and that's before we even start to think about the available hybrid and plug-in hybrids.
The standard engine in the 2017 lineup is the familiar 2.5-liter Duratec I-4 that puts out a nicely symmetrical 175 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. All the other available engines are turbocharged EcoBoost offerings with displacements of 1.5, 2.0 and 2.7-liters. The 1.5 and 2.0-liter units are both four-cylinder engines that produce 181 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft. and 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque, respectively. For the ultimate in 2017 Ford Fusion power and performance, there's the excellent 2.7-liter EcoBoost. This one is a V-6 putting 325 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal, and it's only found in the all-wheel drive Fusion Sport model.
With such a diverse range of trims and a great lineup of engines, there's a model in the 2017 Fusion family to suit most budgets. You can pay close to $40,000 at the highest end of the range for the likes of plug-in hybrid Fusion Energi Platinum. However, the well-equipped Fusion S starts only just over $22,000 even though looking at it you could be forgiven for thinking it would cost a whole lot more.
