5 Reasons to Buy

1. Your Choice of Peppy Engines

Ford Fusion: Engine | CarMax

Are you looking for a peppy, 245-hp engine? Or, maybe you want something that, despite its highway power, isn't going to send you to the pumps frequently. Or, is it an electric range that gets you around-town that you're after? The 2020 Ford Fusion has an engine that aims to fulfill your needs; whether you're getting power from the peppy and fun turbocharged 1.5L or 2.0L four-cylinder engines or a plug-in hybrid platform, it won't be hard to find the right choice for the kind of drive you want.

2. Drive Modes for the Urban Jungle

Depending on the season, the weather and road conditions can change unexpectedly, and no one wants to be caught off guard. From heavy downpours to sudden snowy whiteouts, the 2020 Ford Fusion has the technology that's designed to improve traction, giving you a smoother overall driving experience. If you're looking for even more traction and control, all-wheel drive is also available on SE and higher gasoline models. It actively monitors the road conditions and gets the right power to the right wheels while a drive-mode selector dial on the center console gives you even more control over how your 2020 Ford Fusion reacts.

3. Useful Driver Assists

For most cars these days, driver-assist features are as expected as wheels, and it's an area the 2020 Ford Fusion doesn't skimp on. The 2020 Ford Fusion includes Ford Co-Pilot 360™ technology as standard on all trims and even the base model S trim is equipped with pre-collision braking, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams.
