Exterior

The Fusion was the first Ford model to feature the chrome three-bar grille that has since appeared on other models. There are projector-beam headlights and taillights that are a cross between conventional colored and clear lenses. A chrome strip decorates the lower edge of the side windows.

Standard wheels start with 16-inch steel on the Fusion S and range up to 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels on the SEL. Eighteen-inch alloys are optional in the Sport Appearance Package that also includes sport suspension tuning, a black-chrome grille and a rear spoiler, among other cosmetic upgrades inside and out.
