We have been hearing a lot of stories about 2020 Ford Fusion and its redesign. However, the latest reports are telling something completely different. The official statement of the company is that the redesign has been delayed. This would mean that the next year won’t bring anything special in terms of novelties. The 2020 Fusion will most likely continue without bigger changes. Though, we could see some nice additions in terms of standard equipment. On the other side, the engine lineup is about to remain unchanged.
The recent update has brought a lot of novelties and 2020 Ford Fusion should follow all of them. This facelift was mostly about styling upgrades, so there are subtle changes on both ends of the car. At the front, you can notice a new grille design, which receives not only a new shape but mesh pattern as well. Also, count on things like revised headlights and bumper, new front fascia etc. On the other end, you cant notice a bunch of minor changes as well. This looks very usual for facelifts. On the other side, the mechanical aspect of the car remains untouched and 2020 Ford Fusion will continue in the same way. The biggest novelty for the next year could be some additional color option.
Interior has always been a strong point of this mid-size sedan. First of all, you can count on a lot of legroom, as well as on generous cargo space. Materials quality seems very good, especially in higher trims. So, it definitely seems like a strong competitor in this highly competitive segment. Some models probably look fancier, but this one keeps the same level of quality. The recent update has brought a lot of novelties in terms of standard equipment, which is very important when you need to compete with such amazing models like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. Some of the highlights are advanced safety systems like lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking. Furthermore, you can get optional systems like rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, rear cross traffic alert, and automatic parking assist.
Expect to see same engines in the offer for 2020 Ford Fusion. Base models will come with an old but reliable 2.5-liter atmospheric unit, which delivers around 175 horsepower. A smaller and far more efficient 1.5-liter EcoBoost inline-turbo is good for about 181 horsepower. You can go for another turbo inline-four, a 2.0-liter engine, which delivers 240 hp and 270 lb-ft. Finally, the 2020 Ford Fusion will be available with a potent 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6, which is good for about 325 horsepower and which is one of the most powerful models in class.
2020 Ford Fusion Release Date and Price
Considering that we won’t see bigger changes, the 2020 Ford Fusion should come in usual time. That would mean sometime in late 2019. When it comes to the price, expect a similar range compared to the current model, which goes between$ 23,000 and $40,000.
