New 2017 Ford Fusion – Release Date and Info

2017 Ford Fusion review

The new 2017 Ford Fusion makes for a prudent choice for anyone looking for distinctive styling, laudable fuel economy ratings, and a wide selection of technology features. Some of the reasons should compel you further include an available AWD system, an improved touchscreen interface, a whisper-quiet cabin, fuel-sipping whilst on the move, and features a sharp handling. The Ford Fusion 2017 release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.

The Ford Fusion has been a hit with consumers for some time now ever since it replaced the immediate model back in 2013. Ford ensured there was everything for everyone by offering multiple powertrain options, an attractive interior, and a handsome Aston Martin-esque grille. Five years have gone by and the Fusion is still a big nameplate in the automotive industry.

However, in order to up its sleeve to keep shoppers’ interests high, the new 2017 Ford Fusion has several few tricks up its sleeve as Ford knows too well that inertia is the death knell in this ultra-competitive segment.

Therefore 2017 Ford Fusion changes include an easier and faster to use Sync 3 infotainment system that replaces the critiqued MyFord Touch interface. In addition to the efficiency, the new Sync 3 system is also credited for its large, smartphone-style menus and buttons. Well, the changes don’t stop there, with an output of 325 hp and 350 lbs. ft. torque offered by the 2.7L turbocharged V6 engine, the Fusion is arguably the hot rod of its class.

The exterior hasn’t been left unchanged as well, new features include redesigned headlights, push-button ignition, parallel and perpendicular parking system, and a rotary transmission gear selector. Adding to the allure, this year also sees the debut of an all-new trim – the 2017 Ford Fusion Platinum model that tacks on appealing features such as a power-adjustable steering wheel, and quilted leather seats.

Buyers shopping in this class of cars have plenty of options, though. One vehicle that we find hard to ignore in this class is the “A” rated Honda Accord. It recently got a rejuvenation of its own and should be a worthy pick. Others hot on the heels of the Ford Fusion 2017 include 2017 Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry, Mazda 6, Chevrolet Malibu 2017 , and Kia Optima.
