Doesn’t everyone want choices? That’s exactly what Ford designers provide 2017 Ford Fusion customers. There is such a variety of trim levels and optional packages for every budget and taste. In fact, this year, Ford is giving you the bonus of a new Sport and Platinum trim to the Fusion sedan’s lineup.
The 2017 Ford Fusion midsize sedan is available in five trim levels: S, SE, Titanium, Platinum, and V6 Sport. Let’s start at the base model. Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, along with features like a rearview camera, audio and phone voice commands, Bluetooth connectivity, smartphone app integration, and other basic functions, such as cruise control and air-conditioning.
Moving beyond the base model to the Fusion SE, you and your passengers will receive a comfortable ride with an eight-way power driver seat that even includes power lumbar adjustment, a six-way power passenger seat, rear heat ducts, a rear center fold-down armrest, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.
For those who want to personalize their Fusion S and SE models a bit more, you can add the Appearance package. Now you’ll be driving with 18-inch alloy wheels. You’ll also receive some premium interior features, such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and special cloth upholstery. If you want to dress up your Fusion S and SE models with even more luxurious highlights, another package should delight you and your passengers. That package provides a special turbocharged 1.5-liter engine and such popular driver assist features as keyless ignition and entry, and remote ignition. If you live in a cold weather climate, you’ll be treated to heated front seats, auto heated mirrors, leather upholstery, and driver-seat memory settings.
Ford has also diagnosed a remedy for those who are technologically savvy and need their car to be equally equipped. That package gives you such high tech features as dependable rear parking sensors, soothing dual-zone automatic climate control, an 11-speaker sound system to listen to all of your favorite music, and the popular Sync 3 technology interface. You’ll also have the ability to control your vehicle with an enhanced voice system.
At the top of the trim level is the Fusion Titanium. It provides extra power with its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a smooth drive using its 18-inch wheels. You and your passengers will enjoy long drives in this particular trim since you receive comfortable Sport front seats, ambient interior mood lighting, and a premium 12-speaker Sony sound system, and HD radio.
If you are choosing the Ford Fusion to use often on trips around town or on vacation, you’ll want to ensure that it is equipped with plenty of driver assist features. Ford has put together the Driver Assist package for its SE and Titanium trim owners. You’ll be pleased to be behind your heated steering wheel with automatic high-beam control and automatic wipers. Safety features, such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist system, are all incorporated into this version of the Fusion.
Finally, the new and sportier version of the Fusion has arrived this year. This V6 Sport model gives you the luxury features from the SE trim, and adds extra zest to the vehicle. When you’re behind the wheel of the Sport, you’ll draw a lot of attention, thanks to your turbocharged V6 engine, quad exhaust tips, and rear spoiler, along with stylish interior touches, such as leather and simulated suede upholstery and a nine-speaker audio system.
