CARS.COM — Ford’s newly redesigned Fusion sedan has received some updates for the 2017 model year, including slight exterior refinements, a new transmission and a new multimedia system. It also offers three gasoline powertrains and two hybrid models. We already reviewed two of the gas-powered trim levels here; Ford has since added a semi-high-performance model to appeal to folks who like a little stealth with their speed: the new 2017 Ford Fusion V-6 Sport, which features some noteworthy upgrades over other Fusion models.
On the outside, the differences are subtle. A different lower bumper housing LED fog lamps is included, a dark high-gloss black grille is swapped in and 19-inch dark painted wheels are added. The look is subtle; frankly, there’s little in the way of distinguishing differences from any other high-end Fusion model. You really have to look for it if you plan on spotting a Sport.
