2019 Ford Fusion review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Ford Fusion?

The Ford Fusion is a mid-size sedan that seats up to five people. A 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is standard, but a selection of turbocharged engines is available, including a 325-hp, twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 that goes in the Sport trim level. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid (Energi) variants are also offered. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. Competitors include the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima.

What’s New on the 2019 Ford Fusion?

Standard active safety features include forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high-beam headlights. The sedan also gets front and rear styling updates.

What Features in the 2019 Ford Fusion Are Most Important?

Standard features include air conditioning, cloth upholstery, a 60/40, split-folding backseat, cruise control, rain-sensing windshield wipers and push-button start. Available features include adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a power moonroof, remote start, an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system, navigation, a Sony premium stereo, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Should I Buy the 2019 Ford Fusion?

The Fusion’s ride and handling is a highlight, along with the performance-oriented Sport trim level, which is fun to drive. The available Sync 3 touchscreen multimedia system is easy to use, but the backseat is cramped, and thick roof pillars limit forward visibility. The Fusion was last redesigned for the 2013 model year and is nearing the end of its run; Ford has said this will be the final generation of the sedan.

Hate that they discontinued them

Great first car in my opinion, I’ve had 2 fusions now. My second one 19’ SE ecoboost (current) does have its issues such as transmission problems that I’ve never had in my 16’ SE but it rides comfortably, looks good, very safe and puts down some good power for a 1.5 liter. When I got into my accident with the 16’ it was honestly not bad, solid hit but I barely moved and the car took the impact really well (airbags did not deploy) ford is really tough lol. I’m in love with this car and I hoping to transfer to fusion sport soon. Definitely a sleeper just wish it could look more aggressive

Piece of junk engine

I got a great deal onvthis car as a 2019 leftover demo with 3000 miles on it. They took 9000.00 iff the sticker at the beginning of Covid. Ran fine but for a 1.5 liter engine gas mileage sits at around 25 or 26 not really that good. Problems started at 35000 miles, Bumper to Bumper warranty just ended due to time. About 15 days later engine light was coming on acceleration was wacky, changed spark plugs them the coils. This didnt fix it. Called the dealership they brought it in, told me there is a problem with the colllant or some sort of defect in the seal of some of these engines. Needs a whole new engine. Just 35 k. Luckily the powertrain warranty is still good. Terrible that an engine only lasts this long. I have never had to replace an engine in cars with over 100k. Wont buy another Ford for a while.
