2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid First Drive, Price, Performance and Review

From the workaday SE to the posh Platinum, the Fusion offers something for everyone. The base engine is a 175-hp 2.5-liter four, but two turbo fours are offered—a 181-hp 1.5-liter and a 245-hp 2.0-liter. All get a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is optional. Two hybrids—one a plug-in—are both rated for 41 mpg highway. A stiffened suspension and 325-hp 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6, both exclusive to the Fusion Sport, promise athletic handling with muscle.

Good news: There’s once again a V-6 engine option for the Ford Fusion after a few years during which Dearborn’s mainstream family sedan offered only four-bangers. Better news: It’s a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 making 325 horsepower, an engine we’ve seen before in the F-150 pickup and the Edge crossover. In the Fusion, it appears only under the hood of the Sport, which joins the luxury-focused Platinum as new models in the revised-for-2017 lineup.

Dedicated Ford watchers will recognize this as the return of the Fusion Sport introduced for 2010 and dropped when the car was redesigned for 2013. The mid-term refresh for ’17 brings some amendments—not necessarily improvements to our eye—to the exterior styling, an upgraded interior, and, most appealing, the Sport model tested here.
