The 2018 Ford Fusion will come with slightly refreshed look and more luxury features…
The Ford Fusion is an on-going range of cars since 2012. However, the car will receive a complete makeover in the 2018 redesign. Fusion is one of the best-selling cars of Ford all over the world. In order to reduce overall weight and improve fuel economy it uses lightweight materials like aluminum, strong steel and even composite in some places. The new Ford Fusion 2018 is expected to be in stores in early 2018.
2018 Ford Fusion design
The exterior change of the new 2018 Ford Fusion will not be very different from its predecessor. It has an oval grilled portion with horizontal slits of metal. LED light is provided for the headlights which are produced of the standard size. Two indicator lamps are present within each set of the headlight. It has high quality and 19-inches wide alloy wheels. The bodywork has a distinct metal which offers a powerful framework to the model. It has a lower roof.
The changes in the interior design will be more visible than the exterior. The design has a lot in common with the future Fiesta of the company. There is good boot space. The chairs are set in a good leather-feel fabric. The windows are lined up with stainless steel. The infotainment panel has a 4.2-inch touch screen display which will incorporate a GPS system, World Wide Web link FM radio; Wireless Bluetooth, USB 2.0 port and a category feel display. The car comes packed with several security precautions. It is installed with high-end cameras, lane assist, and two airbags.
New Ford Fusion 2018 specs and price
For this model, Ford has a focus on fuel efficiency, otherwise, there are no such differences in this new generation car. The base engine starts with a old 2.5-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder unit which produces 175 horses and 175 pounds per feet of torque. If you want to skip this large powerplant there will be the 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 that offers close to 180 horsepower, 177 lb-ft of torque and is certainly a good choice. Top models (Titanium and Platinum) will be equipped with 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with turbocharger that produces 240 horses and 270 lb-ft of torque. All engines comes paired with 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Fusion Sport model will come equipped with a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 which could get as much as 400 horsepower. These engines will be efficient and smooth. A manual gearbox is unlikely for these models. The six-speed automatic system will be replaced by a nine-speed unit. The sports version might only receive a manual gearbox.
The 2018 Ford Fusion will be in stores by early 2018. It hopes to be the Audi A4 available at a fraction of its price. The price for the new Fusion starts from $22,500 and goes on to $36,000. It is a model well worth to be waited for.
