2016 Ford Fusion
2016 Ford Fusion
Posted on August 13, 2015
We think the 2016 Ford Fusion is one of the best looking
family sedans on the market. It's refined, has an authentic yet classic
European styling and has Ford quality and reliability. Add plenty of technology
and a very competitive price and you have a future bestseller on your hands.
There are few cars that can truly be all things to all
people but the 2016 Ford Fusion is one of them. It can be a sensible family
hauler one minute and a highway muncher the next. It is a triumph of form and
2016 Ford Fusion design
The redesigned Ford Fusion arrived in 2013 and has been a
hit ever since. Not all European designs resonate well with Canadians, but this
one certainly has.
The Fusion has been called "shark-like" and we
would have to agree. The big grille, angled hood and headlights all combine to
give the car a definite shark-like appearance, but in a nice way. The rest of
the design is fluid and simple, offering a few body panel details and a flow
that draws the eye naturally down the length of the car.
Inside, the interior of the 2016 Ford Fusion is as cool as
the outside. Style abounds with soft touch materials and a minimalist design
that is better for its simplicity. With everything controllable from the much improved
MyFord Touch, there's no need for switches and buttons and we think the cabin
looks great for that.
Engine and transmission
There are three engine options for the 2016 Ford Fusion.
There is a 1.5-litre turbocharged four cylinder that delivers 178 hp and 177
lb-ft of torque, a 2.0-litre turbo four that gives 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of
torque and the standard 2.5-litre four that produces 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of
All engines use a six speed automatic transmission to send
power to the front wheels. All wheel drive is an option.
You don't need us to tell you how good Ford engines are.
Suffice to say that all three of these engines work well in their environment
and offer plenty of refinement and power. The transmission is slick and always
on time, making the driving experience very positive indeed.
2016 Ford Fusion trims
There are three trim levels for the 2016 Ford Fusion, S, SE
and Titanium. The Fusion S offers the 2.5-litre engine, 16 inch wheels, auto
lighting, power everything, reversing camera, air conditioning, cruise control,
Ford Sync, and CD audio.
The Fusion SE adds 17 inch alloy wheels, exterior keypad
entry, heated mirrors, power driver's seat and six-speaker CD audio.

The 2016 Ford Fusion is a five passenger sedan that oozes
quality from every panel. With great engines, plenty of passenger space, a
refined drive and that typical quality Ford ownership experience, there is nothing
to stop this car leading the pack.
