Now available in five trim levels and three stunning models including the S, SE gas/hybrid, SEL gas/hybrid, V6 Sport and the Fusion Titanium gas/hybrid/Energi plug-in hybrid the all-new Ford Fusion also offers enough confidence inspiring power to get your new driver where they need to be, with an added safety twist to assure that they can get to each destination safely. Beginning with a turbocharged 1.5-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology, a 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine with direct fuel injection, as well as a best-in-class 2.7-liter EcoBoost. All three of these engines combine turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) to enhance performance and overall fuel efficiency. Each new Ford Fusion also comes standard with Intelligent AWD sensors that balances torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction. Electric power-assisted steering also automatically adjusts to deliver the precise feel and control that young drivers need at any speed.

This new Ford model also includes Enhanced Active Park Assist that uses Ultrasonic sensors to make parking a breeze for even the newest young driver. Thanks to the inclusion of Ford’s MyKey technology, you can also program any 2019 Ford Fusion key fob with a restricted driving mode setting that promotes good teen driver habits, such as increasing seat belt use, limiting vehicle top speeds and decreasing audio volume.

Less Stops for Fuel
