2020 Ford Fusion

2020 Fusion Photos
The 2020 Ford Fusion marks the end of the line for Ford’s midsize family sedan which has been around with only minor changes since the 2013 model year. Although aging, the Fusion still has some appeal. In our experience, the Fusion blends responsive handling and good ride quality. The interior isn’t especially stylish, but is pleasant enough and SYNC 3 works well.

We particularly like a number of the powertrains that include two hybrid variants and a powerful optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. With 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, it’s a potent and smooth engine. Sadly the 325-horsepower turbocharged V6 model has been discontinued. All-wheel drive remains an option, and it comes solely with the 245-horsepower engine. Ford also packs in desirable safety and convenience features including lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, rain-sensing wipers, automatic high-beam headlights and proximity locking and starting as standard on even the bare-bones S trim.

As mentioned, the S comes with plenty of useful safety features, but it’s sparsely equipped otherwise. It doesn’t get SYNC 3 as standard and as such no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto either. It also has cloth, manually-adjustable seats, manual single-zone climate control and steel wheels with wheel covers. It also comes only with a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 175 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque coupled to a six-speed automatic like all other Fusions. It also returns a disappointing 24 mpg combined. The S starts at $24,165.

The SE is only a little more expensive at $25,495, but you get many upgrades that make it worth the upcharge. It comes standard with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder making 181 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque that returns a much better 27 mpg combined. It also gets power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear parking sensors, alloy wheels, individual tire-pressure monitoring and a keypad. The SE can be optioned with the aforementioned turbocharged 2.0-liter with all-wheel drive, or a hybrid consisting of a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter inline-4 with an electric motor, a combination that together makes 188 horsepower and returns 42 mpg.

Moving up to the SEL trim, the only powertrain choices are the 1.5-liter turbo or the hybrid. It does add heated front seats with memory, an 11-speaker sound system, satellite radio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and remote start. The base price is $29,685.

The Titanium trim comes standard with all-wheel drive and the 2.0-liter turbo engine, but is also available with front-wheel drive as a normal hybrid or a plug-in hybrid. The plug-in has the same power as the regular hybrid and the same combined fuel economy, but it can also drive up to 26 miles solely on electricity. The Titanium trim also adds leather, heated and cooled front seats, a 12-speaker Sony sound system, ambient lighting, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel and a sunroof. The base price is $35,445.
