Ford Fusion is considered to be one of the iconic cars created by the American manufacturer, although it has been introduced less than ten years ago. However, this car really deserves to be called iconic – it has been popular from the day it was introduced, it is one of the Ford’s best sellers and it was the sign that the American car manufacturer is going in a brand new direction. The current model is the second generation, introduced just a couple years ago and now Ford thinks that it is time for a mid-cycle update of this car, which is going to be sold as the 2016 Ford Fusion.
2016 Ford Fusion Exterior
On the outside of the 2016 Ford Fusion we should not expect any significant changes. According to just a few official images that have been published, the front of the car is going to keep that big chrome grille (the problem with this grille is that it resembles the one that are used by Aston Martin, the British car manufacturer) and the front bumper. However, headlights are going to be slightly changed with the new position of elements and integrated LED daytime running lights. The back of the 2016 Ford Fusion is going to stay the same, at least according to the official pictures, but there is a chance the American manufacturer is going to change something until the car is officially unveiled. The biggest change is the addition of another expensive trim level which should add more chrome on the outside and bigger alloy wheels.
Interior of 2016 Fusion Ford
Unlike the exterior, the interior of the 2016 Ford Fusion is going to suffer much more changes. Primary focus of the designers was the dashboard, because the one used in the previous model looked quite old and crowded with many buttons. The new dashboard will have much less buttons, it is going to be more elegant and stylish than functional and according to the images new gearshift is going to be used. The 2016 Ford Fusion will be offered with either fabric cloth or leather seats. The center of the dashboard will be dominated by a large 4.2-inch touch screen display, used for controlling of the satellite navigation and infotainment system. Furthermore, the American manufacturer plans to increase the list of the features and equipment that are going to be included in the base version.
2016 Fusion Engine
The 2016 Ford Fusion is going to be offered with three different engines. The base engine is going to be the same 2.5l 4-cylinder engine that produces 175 horsepower. Apart from that, customers will be offered 1.5l EcoBoost or 2.0l EcoBoost engines. There are no official specifications about the two engines, probably because they have not yet decided which transmission they are going to use, but reports suggest that Ford is considering using a 9-speed automatic transmission.
2016 Ford Fusion Price
The base version of the 2016 Ford Fusion should cost around $23,000 and the most expensive, Titanium trim level should be around $35,000.
Release date of 2016 Ford Fusion
The 2016 Ford Fusion should go on sale at the beginning of the 2016.
