2014 Ford Fusion review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2014 Ford Fusion?

The 2014 Ford Fusion is a five-seat mid-size sedan offered in three trim levels: S, SE and Titanium. There's also a Ford Fusion Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid Fusion Energi, which are covered separately on Cars.com. Front-wheel drive is standard for S and SE, but all-wheel drive is optional for Titanium. Competitors include the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata and Nissan Altima.

What's New on the 2014 Ford Fusion?

For 2014, the Fusion gets an available turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The outboard rear seats can be equipped with optional inflated seat belts. Summer tires with 19-inch wheels are also available. Titanium models can be had with an available Interior Appearance Package, which includes premium leather seating, premium floormats and vinyl door inserts.

How Does the 2014 Ford Fusion Compare to Other Mid-Size Sedans?

The Fusion is a fun-to-drive mid-size sedan with a competitive base engine and impressive handling. If "fun-to-drive" isn't on your list of must-haves, there are other well-reviewed mid-size sedans on the market to consider with considerable comfort and value.

What Features in the 2014 Ford Fusion Are Most Important?

The Fusion offers a choice of four engines. The standard engine is a 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Its three available engines include a 177-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder; a 231-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 181-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder. Drivers can choose between a six-speed automatic or manual transmission, as well as front- or all-wheel drive.

Significant standard features include 16- to 19-inch wheels, a chrome grille, seating for five, cloth upholstery, a split folding backseat, air conditioning and cruise control. Available options include alloy rims, dual exhaust tips, a spoiler, a power moonroof, a self-parking system, leather seating, automatic air conditioning, a heated steering wheel, cooled front seats and a navigation system.

The 2014 Fusion comes with four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, side-impact and knee airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for the front and rear. Available safety features include inflatable rear seat belts, a backup camera, blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control with forward-collision warning.

Should I Buy the 2014 Ford Fusion?

Class-defying style and handling separate the 2014 Ford Fusion from other mid-size sedans. Additionally, it's available with all-wheel drive. If you don't mind the price premium, along with quirks like firm seats, hard-to-use controls, and impeded forward visibility, then the Ford Fusion may be right for you.

Nice summer car obly

Car is great most of the year but not good in the snow. Traction control interferes while on icy streets,has to manually turned off or brakes will lock up causing the abs braking to not work & the car to skid. The 3 inches of car clearance causes the car to "snowplow" thru 4 or more inches of snow and getting stuck in 4" or more of snow,especially,wet heavy snow. Windows constantly fog up if snowing while driving unless defroster is set "on" continuesely at highest temperature causing it to get so hot inside that you have to crack a window some to cool it down but cracking or opening a window when it's snowing causes snow to come in getting the interior door panels and rear seat to get very wet, causing more problems with the leather or cloth upholstery. Passenger seat is bolted way too low to the floor and no "assist" handle is located on the "A" pillar. The ceiling or roof mounted assist handle is basically "Useless" in the position it is in. Don't leave anything of value in the car or trunk as the automatic trunk release opens randomly by itself during cold weather I had it,checked by Ford but the dealer could not find anything wrong with it and replacing trunk release was not a recall so I had to pay the dealer to just look at it and replacement cost a small fortune. Lower control arm bushings need replaced well below the "Normal" mileage use, causing the car to pull left or right, especially on fast take-offs from a dead stop. Plastic front bumper paint chips easily from road debrie so a heavy paint clear stick-on protector is recommended to save the paint and reduce any required touch-ups. Dash lights sometimes shut off by themselves for only a few seconds then go back on, was checked but no problems found by Ford dealer. Check for all 17 plus recalls before or right after purchase. Nice summer car.


Great product

Great handling car unbelievable gas mileage love it. Bought another one for a second car. My wife loves how soft and smooth it rides for the gas mileage you get.


This would be hands down the best car!

If I were to purchase this vehicle it would be hands down the best vehicle I’ve ever owned # 1 b/ c it would be the FIRST and only vehicle I’ve ever owned. 2. I’ve done research on the vehicle and it appears to be reliable. I love not only the exterior but the interior as well. A plus for me was being that the car is not outdated overall as well.
