2015 Ford Fusion

Substantial changes are in store for the Ford Fusion family as anticipation builds for the 2017 Ford Fusion, and we can’t wait to offer it to drivers around Plainfield and Naperville. Expect a new look and feel from the 2017 model. We reviewed Autoblog.com’s spy shots to bring you the news on the Ford Fusion makeover.

The New Face of Ford Fusion

Ford seems to be rethinking the design of the 2017 Fusion, starting with a departure from the Aston Martin-style grille of the 2015 Ford Fusion. Expect a completely new body shape from front to rear, possibly including the tires. Ford seems to have swapped out the small corner window for updated front glass. The significant adjustments to the exterior set the 2017 Ford Fusion apart from the 2015 edition.

An Look Inside the 2017 Fusion

Shots from inside the 2017 Fusion hint at some exciting updates to the interior that Naperville drivers already know and love. Small details like matte wood trim step up a feeling of luxury while a new rotary gear selector suggests the installation of a nine-speed automatic transmission. The dashboard has contemporary edges and a high-tech console, which is likely to include the Microsoft SYNC system.

Why We Love the 2015 Ford Fusion

The substantial changes planned for the 2017 Ford Fusion are exciting revisions to a model that has continued to lead in the competitive midsize sedan class. The Fusion is a fuel-efficient, stylish powerhouse with smooth handling and impressive safety features. Here are some of our favorite aspects broken down:

  • From the 2.5L Duratec I-4 engine to the 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle I-4 hybrid, the five available Fusion engines pack significant horsepower while achieving impressive efficiency.
  • The 2015 Fusion earned five out of five stars from the government for overall crash protection. Standard safety features include anti-lock disc brakes, stability and traction control, and front-seat side, front knee and side curtain airbags.
  • The Fusion’s style is unique, with clean, contemporary design and upscale details. The cabin is comfortable and made even better with the optional MyFord Touch touchscreen system.
