The 2018 Ford Fusion
The Ford Fusion has consistently matched smart design with performance uncommon within the midsize sedan segment, and the 2018 model is no different. A perennial testing ground for Ford’s newest technology and safety features, the Fusion provides unparalleled value in a vehicle that is as reliable as you’d imagine a sedan to be while offering the driving thrills you’d expect from a performance vehicle. Team Ford, your premier Edmonton Ford dealership, is confident that the Ford Fusion can satisfy all of your driving needs.
From the Fusion’s base 1.5L EcoBoost® engine all the way to the Fusion Sport’s 2.7L turbocharged V6 EcoBoost® engine –that pumps out a meaty 325 hp with 380 lb.-ft of torque—there is no lack of power in the Fusion lineup. The EcoBoost® engine’s turbocharged, direct injection and twin independent variable cam timing ensures a healthy blend of performance and efficiency and, if that isn’t enough for you, there’s also a gas hybrid and plug-in hybrid option that provide unparalleled fuel economy. Available wheel-mounted paddle shifters help turn driving the standard 6-speed automatic transmission from an afterthought to an event, and the standard European-inspired independent MacPherson strut-type suspension provides a ride that’s comfortable and soft, but firm and sporty. Combine that with available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, and Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS), and you’ll constantly be looking for an excuse to get out of the house and behind the wheel.
Intelligent AWD and EPAS are only the start of what makes the Ford Fusion a regular IIHS Top Safety Pick+. Feel confident with your family in tow, thanks to its inflatable rear safety belts, and Ford’s new Co-Pilot360™ suite. Co-Pilot360™ is the most advanced collection of safety features ever seen in a North American vehicle, and includes Ford’s Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping Assist, automatic emergency braking, and more. Even with all those safety features you’ll need to keep your eyes on the road—luckily you can utilize the Fusion’s wide array of infotainment technology, including the incredibly easy to use SYNC® 3 system and smartphone enabled SYNC Connect.
An Eye to the Future
In addition to regularly hosting or debuting Ford’s numerous safety features, the Fusion has always led the way in terms of environmentally conscious vehicles. The 2018 gas-electric Fusion Hybrid and its 2.0L I-4 Atkinson-cycle gas engine and electric motor delivers 188 combined horses, and can get up to 135 km/h while still in electric mode. Add in a combined city/highway fuel efficiency of 5.5L/100 km, for 51 mpg, and you’ll be saving on gas while helping save the environment. If you find those numbers impressive, then you’ll be amazed by what the Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid can achieve. With three modes to choose from, gas, electric, or a combination of the two, the Fusion Energi has an estimated 982 kilometre driving range on one full tank of gas and full battery charge. Monitor the performance of your environmentally friendly Fusion with its dual LCD SmartGauge™ system, that provides customizable screens allowing you to stay on top of every aspect of your Fusion Hybrid or Fusion Energi’s efficiency.
