2020 Ford Fusion Sedan features and specs
With so much focus from buyers, manufacturers and the media on SUVs and trucks these days it could be easy to forget how good some other vehicles are. It wasn't too long ago that the Ford Fusion was regarded as one of the best vehicles in the market, and possibly the best midsize sedan you could buy. Do you want to know something? The 2020 Ford Fusion is still just as good, so here's a reminder of the features and specs of these outstanding midsize Ford cars.
The exterior styling of the Fusion hasn't changed a lot recently, but why should it when it's still one of the most attractive models this side of the luxury sector. In fact, the Fusion will still give a lot of luxury models a run for their money, especially with it being much more reasonably priced. The Fusion is as sleek, stylish and fresh-looking as this model was when it first took a bow in 2012.
You have three engines to choose from in the Fusion, two of which are turbocharged. The base engine is a 2.5-liter i-VCT that develops 175 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque in the entry-level Fusion S. Next up is the 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbo-four, and this one has 181 hp and 185 lb.-ft. of torque on offer as the standard unit in the SE and SEL. There are two hybrid options as well, and both use a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine and an electric motor to produce a total output of 188 hp. The hybrid has a 1.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, but the other is a plug-in hybrid that has a larger 9.0-kWh lithium-ion battery. The Fusion plug-in Hybrid boasts an EPA-estimated 26-mile electric-only range.*
The third of the trio of gas engines is a 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbo-four that puts out 245 hp and 175 lb.-ft. of torque, and this one is standard with the Titanium in front-drive form and an available with all-wheel drive versions of the SE and Titanium. There is a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 turbo exclusive to the Fusion V6 Sport, but that 375 hp and 380 lb.-ft of torque will be discontinued for 2020.
All three remaining powerplants come mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive is standard, but 2.0-liter models are now available with all-wheel-drive.
Features and equipment
Most buyers other than rental fleets will look beyond the base Fusion S and start with the SE. The SE comes standard with that 1.5-liter turbo engine, power-adjustable front seats, automatic climate control, 17-inch alloys, the larger infotainment system, parking sensors and the Sync 3 infotainment system that has an 8.0-inch touchscreen and is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Step up to the SEL and the Fusion then gets the likes of heated front seats, a synthetic leather upholstery, 18-inch alloys, a memory driver’s seat, an upgrade to an 11-speaker audio system, and even a garage door opener.
With leather upholstery, a Sony sound system, the 2.0-liter turbo engine, standard all-wheel-drive, a power moonroof, and voice-activated navigation, it's probably easier to think of what the Fusion Titanium doesn’t have.
