According to certain credible sources, this 2017 Ford Fusion is going to come out in its regular as well as hybrid variants. The new 2017 Fusion is being expected to have entirely a different look. Outside, Fusion has a unique, newly designed front grille with available new LED headlamps. Inside, smart driver-assist technologies and voice-activated controls27 are available across a full range of models, including two new models being introduced now.
Reports suggest that this mid-size sedan might get a complete renovation, but other credible sources saying different. Both front and rear ends of the vehicle might get restyled – with a signature style on front, and improved grille design and head lights. The backside uncovers new LED backlights with redesigned lighting components, and the sash additionally receives some slight modifications. The rear end design might not be as dramatic as the front.
As per the reliable sources the dash will be redesigned. Rumor has it that the cabin will be furnished in high quality leather and a touch of matte finish wood trim for a more deluxe interior character. The cabin will also have plenty of leg room and cargo space which will be expanded by folding the rear seats. The automaker has however confirmed that the MyFord touch-screen infotainment system will be replaced with Ford Sync 3 infotainment system.
The system comes with a 12-speaker Sony audio system, HD radio, 100 volts power outlet in front, remote start stop, cruise control, parking sensors, collision warning, lane keep system and a rearview camera. The interior of all Fusions will now come with a knob instead of a lever gear selector, and the updated SYNC 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto capability.
When talking about the under the hood sector, the engine is another obscure for the 2017 Ford Fusion. It’s not likely Ford will get excessively insane here, but it is not impossible to envision some new increments to the motor or transmission offerings, whether another EcoBoost motor, or an upgrade to the hybrid or a plug-in hybrid system, or another transmission that will be figured in with the general mish-mash.
Overall, this model will include four engine options; three of them are for conventional lineup. Base one is 2.5L 4-cylinder with 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, found exclusively in entry-level S models. Top Titanium grade is mated exclusively to 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engines making 240 hp and 231 lb-ft of torque which can be front or all-wheel driven. Mid-range SE grade gets to choose between all three of available engines, and third one is 1.5L EcoBoost 4-cylinder which puts up 181 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque.
