Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
