2018 Ford Fusion Review

There's a lot to love about the 2018 Ford Fusion. Not only does it offer one of the most spacious trunks in its class and an exceptionally comfortable interior, but it can also be equipped with a range of engine options and some of the best technology features on the market.

 Drivers in Raytown, Lee's Summit, and Blue Springs can learn more about what makes the 2018 Ford Fusion a top choice among midsize cars with our in-depth review.


The base Fusion comes standard with a 173-horsepower 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine. Plus, there are three additional engines to choose from: 181-horsepower 1.5L EcoBoost® I-4, 245-horsepower EcoBoost® I-4, and 325-horsepower 2.7L EcoBoost® V6. All engine variants are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, though the V6 is standard with all-wheel drive.

All engines offer quick acceleration, but the low-end torque of the turbos makes them stunningly fast. The electric power steering is firm and consistent, and the suspension allows it to easily absorb the road. For a family sedan, its exceptional maneuverability makes it a great choice for heavy traffic and curvy roads alike.


The Fusion has a lean, well-proportioned body and a sleek silhouette, as well as an updated grille and redesigned headlights. Its overall look is reminiscent of European luxury cars that sets it apart from its competitors.

In the cabin, the design is geared toward functionality, though that doesn't sacrifice an upscale look. Small metallic accents, gloss black plastic, and high-quality fabric give the Fusion a high-end feel, but the durable materials, ergonomic design, and abundance of small storage spaces suit its purpose as a family sedan.

Comfort & Space

Though it's a midsize sedan, the Fusion edges into the full-size category. Its wheelbase is average for the class, but Ford managed to carve out all the available space for passengers and cargo. Its trunk opening is wide and well-shaped, offering a full 16 cubic feet of space, and its interior shapes strike a nice balance between roominess and practicality.

With bolstered seating and a minimalist design, the Fusion is an exceptionally comfortable ride. There's plenty of legroom and headroom for all passengers, and the suede or quilted leather upholstery options further enhance the comfort and decadence.


All Fusion models are standard with cloth upholstery, air conditioning, cruise control, keyless ignition, power features, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, a 4-speaker sound system, 4.2-inch touchscreen, rearview camera, and Bluetooth® connectivity.

Some other options available for the Fusion include satellite radio, a sunroof, heated or ventilated seating, SYNC® 3 infotainment system, and active noise cancellation technology.

The Fusion also offers some of the latest active safety features, including lane-departure warning, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning with automatic braking, and rear parking sensors.
