The car has great styling, it has more than enough power and a comfortable ride. The car is a Ford Fusion Sport with the V6 engine.

Very comfortable & reliable

This vehicle is perfect for my needs. I recently took a trip over 1000 miles & it was fantastic. I received many compliments while visiting.

Almost a 5

I love my 2017 Ford Fusion Sport. The 6 cylinder twin turbo has ample power and torque with a great engine sound. The car is very comfortable and loaded with features. The AWD gives me confidence in winter driving. The only thing keeping me from giving it all 5 stars is the suspension and brakes. I'd prefer a stiffer suspension, it floats just a bit. For the price though I'm very satisfied with this car and will keep it a long time now that Ford no longer builds cars.

2017 Ford Fusion Overview


The 2017 Ford Fusion is a midsize sedan that competes with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Sonata. For 2017, the Fusion underwent a midcycle refresh, which included a revised exterior, an updated center console, and new Sport and Platinum trims. The Hybrid and Energi versions of the Fusion will be covered in separate overviews.

Five trims are available: the S, SE, Titanium, Sport, and Platinum.

Overall, the Fusion has a sportier appearance. The new frontend has slightly rounder headlights and a wider-mouth fascia than the previous iteration. The chrome trim around the grille is more pronounced. The Sport trim comes with even larger air vents, while the Platinum trim has metallic accents that divide up the front fascia. Standard features include automatic headlights and power side mirrors. Available features include LED headlights, heated side mirrors, turn signal indicators, a power moonroof, fog lights, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and a rear spoiler.

Under the hood, the Fusion has four engine options, which are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Fusion is powered by a standard 175-hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder. A 181-hp, turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder and a 245-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder are also available. The most powerful engine option is found in the Sport trim, which comes with a 325-hp, twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6. All-wheel drive is also available for the Fusion. Fuel economy for the 2.5-liter model earned an EPA-estimated 21/32 mpg city/highway. The rating improves to 23/34 mpg for the turbocharged 1.5-liter model. With a larger engine, the turbocharged 2.0-liter model drops back down to a 21/31 mpg rating. Lastly, the Sport trim gets 17/26 mpg.

Inside, the Fusion features a revised center console. The typical shifter knob has been replaced with a new rotary gear dial. The Platinum trim comes with a premium leather interior with quilted seating. Standard features include a 60/40 split folding rear seat, remote keyless entry, push-button start, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. The available SYNC 3 multimedia system includes an 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, and Siri Eyes Free mode. Other available features include remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear HVAC, heated/ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, and a Sony premium audio system.

Standard safety features include a tire pressure monitoring system and a blind spot warning system. Available features include a backup camera, lane keep assist, pre-collision assist, pedestrian detection, active braking, and post-collision alert.
