2016 Ford Fusion: A Quick Overview

2016 Ford Fusion: A Quick Overview

The 2016 Ford Fusion is the continuation of a solid midsize sedan that leads the pack in terms of design, technology and value. There are few competitors that even come close to any of those three elements, which is why the Fusion sells so well.

 

Ford have come a long way these past few years. The global platform, handsome designs, elevations in materials and build quality and some superior engines cement the blue oval as a firm favourite across Canada and the rest of the world. The 2016 Ford Fusion epitomizes all those things.

 

2016 Ford Fusion design

 

The shark-like front end really works for us. Those narrow angled headlights, big grille, curved hood and nice lower vents all make for a great looking car. Every panel has some kind of detailing on it and the overall shape has been designed to draw the eye down the entire length of the car.

 

On the inside, quality is everywhere. Nice materials, great space, nice driving position, tidy centre stack and plenty of storage all make this car very easy to live with. The driving position of the 2016 Ford Fusion is particularly good. The dashboard is bright and clear, visibility is great all round and the seats are very comfortable indeed.

 

Engine and transmission

 

There are three engine options for the 2016 Ford Fusion. Standard is a 2.5-litre four cylinder that produces 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. There is also a turbocharged 1.5-litre four that delivers 181 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque and a turbocharged 2.0-litre four that generates 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.

 

All send power to the front wheels via a six speed automatic transmission. All wheel drive is an option. Each engine is quiet and refined and has enough power to make driving effortless while returning enough gas mileage to make the Fusion a very economical car to own.

 

2016 Ford Fusion trims

 

The 2016 Ford Fusion has three trim levels, S, SE and Titanium. The Fusion S offers 16 inch wheels, auto lighting, power everything, cruise control, air conditioning, rearview camera, Bluetooth, voice activated audio and CD audio.

 

The Fusion SE adds 17 inch alloy wheels, keypad entry, heated mirrors, power front seats and six speaker CD audio with satellite radio. The Titanium further adds 18 inch alloys, tuned suspension, keyless entry and ignition, remote engine start, sports seats, 8 inch touchscreen, MyFord Touch, automatic climate control and premium Sony audio.

 

The 2016 Ford Fusion should be on your list if you're in the market for a midsize sedan. It is simply too good a car not to be.
