The S and SE models are well-equipped with a rearview camera and 2.5 liter four cylinder engine. The optional Appearance package upgrades to 18 inch wheels and a rear spoiler. Heated leather seats, heated mirrors and keyless ignition are a few creature comforts found in the Luxury package (available on the SE model only). The 2017 Ford Fusion is retailing for about $28,905 MSRP for a decently furnished SE model with all wheel drive.
Ford introduced a Platinum trim this year for the Fusion, retailing for around $36,750 MSRP. Customers who upgrade to this level receive adaptive cruise control with frontal collision warning, deluxe leather trim, automatic wipers, and optional sunroof. Drivers who want a more powerful engine should wait for the V6 Sport model available later this year. The turbocharged engine will deliver the acceleration, and the nine speaker sound system will enhance every ride.
For all of its aesthetic features, the 2017 Ford Fusion doesn't skimp on safety. Standard features include expanded airbags (front knee and side curtain) and the popular MyKey system which sets limits on extra keys given to children, valets and other occasional drivers. Braking distance is average and five out of five stars were given for overall crash protection.
This car was made to cruise and drivers with long commutes will appreciate its comfortable ride and decent fuel economy at an EPA-estimated 25 mpg. Passengers in the rear seats might take note of the sloping roof line as well as the extra space under the front seats to place their feet. The roof line can also make it harder for the driver to see out the back so they would be wise to make use of that rear view camera.
A solid competitor with the other mid-size sedans in terms of driving performance, the Fusion gets an extra kick when upgrading to the 2.0 liter four cylinder option. Drivers will notice the marked improvement in handling. Pair it with the optional AWD (the Fusion is only one of 3 midsize sedans to have AWD as an option currently), and you now have a sedan that's fun to drive, stylish, and can go toe to toe with any of the other contenders in this popular category.
With a wide array of amenities and features, the Fusion benefits from the recent refresh Ford has given it. It remains a solid, safe, and popular choice and the added luxuries don't hurt either. That combination makes the 2017 Ford Fusion stand out above the crowd of domestic sedans and puts it in play with the more elite foreign segment.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Ford Fusion
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Ford Fusion invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Ford Fusion Prices above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
