As an earlier leak suggested, Ford's designers heavily revise the front end for the 2017 refresh. The grille looks pulled across the body and has sharp points on both sides with a mesh grille in between. The headlights also feature harder edges, and the lower airdam has a more angular design, including rectangular fog lights at the corners. The photo from the side hints at small tweaks for the taillights' styling, too.
There's no official word about any powertrain improvements for the Fusion yet. However, spy shots from the summer hint that the Blue Oval might consider building a sporty ST version that would possibly come with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 and all-wheel drive. The good news for the impatient among us is that we only need to wait through the weekend to find out what the company really has in store for the sedan in Detroit.
