Kelley Blue Book: 2017 Ford Fusion Introduces Updates that Keep it Fresh and Very Competitive

The 2017 Ford Fusion is a handsome, midsize sedan that offers considerable appeal to a range of car buyers looking for comfort, reliability, a broad range of styles and features and good performance and fuel economy in a family sedan, concludes Kelley Blue Book® in a recent review. New models for 2017 include the high-end Ford Fusion Platinum and the Ford Fusion Sport that features a powerful V6 engine.

Kelley Blue Book® recommends skipping the base S version and going right for the Fusion SE, which offers two different turbocharged engines. The smaller of the two is the more efficient 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 178 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, and returns a very good fuel economy rating of 23 mpg city and 34 mpg highway. For a bit more torque (ok, quite a bit more), go with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which can also order with all-wheel drive (AWD). It cranks out 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Still, the fuel economy from this more powerful engine is laudable: 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway (FWD) or 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway (AWD).

Then there's the new all-wheel drive Fusion Sort. It's outfitted with a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 that pumps out 325 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful sedan in its class. The Fusion Sport gets a special look, as well, and other features. It includes the SE's special luxury package, which adds leather upholstery, heated front seats with memory settings, LED headlights and foglights and keyless ignition and remote start. With the Sport, you also get larger, 19-inch wheels, a custom grille, 19-inch wheels, adjustable suspension dampers that let you alter your ride accordingly, and a very nice nine-speaker audio system.
