2017 Ford Fusion Sport
Posted on September 14, 2016
If you commute to work and are looking for an alternative to a boring sedan or something that lacks power, or something German, Ford may have the answer. The new 2017 Ford Fusion Sport looks good, works well and uses an established V6 engine with enough power and refinement for any use.
The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport looks like most other Fusion but with a few styling tweaks that make it look a little better. New alloy wheels, a unique grille, trunk spoiler, dual exhausts and a subtle Sport badge are little things that make a big difference.
Inside, the cabin has a few more subtle tweaks to let you know it is a little special. There’s a soft leather steering wheel, pared down chrome, nice subtle cabin materials and simple centre stack all lend themselves well to the new Ford interior philosophy where less clutter equals more satisfaction.
Under the hood is the same 2.7-litre V6 as you get in the F-150 and will get in the Lincoln Continental. It is an excellent motor, it runs smooth, its quiet and yet is responsive to input regardless of how gently you prod the pedal. Hit it hard and you’ll hear the purr of the V6 that never stops making you smile.
The EcoBoost engine delivers 325 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque through a six speed automatic transmission. It sends power to all the wheels. It takes a little while to adjust to looking at a Fusion and then hearing that exhaust note but once you do, you’ll never tire of hitting the Sport button, winding the window down and listening to that noise. You just won’t!
The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport will also feature Continuously Controlled Damping suspension. Also used in Lincoln vehicles, the system uses 12 sensors to keep the ride firm, yet comfortable and to reduce body roll wherever possible. Hit that Sport button again and the ride firms up nicely, offering great cornering characteristics and road holding that builds confidence.
With the usual range of Ford features and options, the 2017 Ford Fusion Sport is a great sedan for those who want something a little different. You get the reliability and safety of Ford, with a little extra panache and power under your foot. If you want to drive to work with a smile on your face, this is certainly the car that can deliver.
