The 2020 Ford Fusion puts a friendly price on rich comfort and sporty style.
What’s new for the 2020 Ford Fusion?
This five-passenger midsize sedan still delivers on its long-time promise of smooth-riding comfort and modern technology. For 2020, Ford only made a couple of tweaks to the lineup. First, the V6 Sport trim has been discontinued. Second, Fusion models with the 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine no longer include paddle shifters.
Which 2020 Ford Fusion trim model should I buy?
There are four Fusion trim models: S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. Which is right for you? It all depends on what you want in a sedan.
The entry-level S has the friendliest price tag of the bunch, and it also comes loaded with a long list of high-tech features. Ford’s Co-Pilot360 bundle of driver safety aids, which includes forward collision mitigation and lane keeping assist, is standard equipment. The base infotainment system includes Sync voice controls, Bluetooth, and a handy USB port. Should you decide to add the Co-Pilot360 Assist package, you also get an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen and complete smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The midgrade SE trim starts with the above features and adds a little extra power (181 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque) via the turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Modern flourishes, like the power-adjustable front seats and rear center fold-down armrest, put the finishing touches on a comfy road trip.
In the SEL, you’ll enjoy a lot of extra luxury at a great price. This trim supplies convenience with keyless entry and ignition and LED headlights, but it also upgrades your comfort with heated front seats. The 11-speaker premium sound system is another big attraction.
If you crave a touch of the finer things, the top-trim Titanium is the perfect choice. This 2020 Ford Fusion trim features exclusive heated and ventilated front sport seats, so you can max out on comfort. And the 12-speaker Sony sound system, sunroof, and ambient interior lighting take your daily drive to new heights. This Fusion also comes with the line’s most powerful engine, the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, for smooth sailing in any setting.
Is the 2020 Ford Fusion a good car?
Since the Fusion first hit the streets, it’s gotten excellent reviews for its sharp handling, smooth performance, and passenger-friendly interior. Modern versions even throw in standard safety features and infotainment gear, checking even more boxes for commuters. The Fusion also has a proven record for dependability.
New models come with excellent warranty coverage. Ford’s new car warranty has you covered for three years or 36,000 miles. And the limited powertrain warranty lasts five years or 60,000 miles. So even if something does go wrong, odds are that you’ll be back on track in no time.
What are the 2020 Ford Fusion EPA ratings?
The gas-powered Fusion strikes an excellent balance between sporty performance and efficiency, earning up to 27 mpg combined (23 city/34 highway mpg). But the Fusion is also available in hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, so you can save even more on fuel, earning up to 42 mpg combined.
