Ford officially launched the 2017 Ford Fusion facelift model at the 2016 NAIAS, in Detroit, yesterday, confirming thus the rumors of a Fusion V6-based mill.
This means that this particular version comes with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, which is just about enough to churn out a good 325 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, leaving thus behind its opponents, the Toyota Camry or Honda Accord. The engine is sending the power to all wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
Apart the more powerful engine, the 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport is also coming with an extraordinary appealing and aggressive design, thanks to the updated front and rear bumpers, elongated headlights, blacked-out grille, quad exhaust tips, all complemented by the wide 19-inch alloy wheels.
On the other hand, the Platinum version, which is above the Titanium, comes with even more body style goodies, like bespoke front grille, 19-inch polished alloy wheels, antique Cocoa & Venetian leathers inside and a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine with AWD configuration under the hood.
Ford will also launch the Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energy plug-in hybrid versions, with upgraded electric motors for increased all-electric range and fuel economy.
Prices will start from $22,995 for the entry-level Fusion, while the Sport version will set you back at $34,350. The Platinum will also be available at $37,995.
