Vehicle Overview

Ford used the previous Fusion to usher in its new three-bar grille, which has been a hit with buyers. The new Fusion has an even bolder chrome grille, as if announcing to the world, "Yes, bigger is better." The "better" part comes in the slew of improvements Ford has made to its new midsize sedan, from more-powerful and efficient engines to a quieter cabin.

In ascending order, trim levels include the S, SE, SEL and Sport. All-wheel drive is optional. There's also a Fusion Hybrid that's detailed separately in the Cars.com Research section.
