2019 Ford Fusion Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

Ford's Fusion mid-size sedan gets a mild-refresh for 2019. The lineup is simplified, as well: Gas versions are available in S, SE, SEL, Titanium and Sport trims; hybrids in SE, SEL and Titanium; and the plug-in hybrid Energi models in SEL and Titanium.

The SEL trim returns for 2019, replacing the SE Luxury Package from previous model years. It comes standard with a 10-way power driver's seat with memory settings, keyless access with remote start and LED headlights among other upscale features. Hybrid SEL models add a voice-activated touchscreen with navigation.

 

Exterior
The exterior changes to the Fusion are minor; put the 2019 Fusion side-by-side with the 2018 and you'll be hard-pressed to notice many differences. The most notable changes are revamped front foglights and changes to the front grille: Titanium models get a chrome mesh while lower trims get a chrome five-bar design. In the rear, the trunk lid has been redesigned and the taillights are now LEDs.

Interior
Interior changes are even less significant than the exterior updates. Buyers of the 2019 Fusion will be able to build a car with new colors on the inside.

Under the Hood
The Fusion's gas-engine lineup remains unchanged with a selection of four-cylinder engines, including a 175-horsepower 2.5-liter; a 181-hp, turbocharged 1.5-liter; and a 245-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter. That's in addition to the Fusion Sport's bonkers 325-hp, turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 making ...

That's in addition to the Fusion Sport's bonkers 325-hp, turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 making 380 pounds-feet of torque. The Energi plug-in hybrid will have a more powerful battery without changing the size of the battery pack, resulting in what sounds like a massive increase of nearly 20 percent in battery-only range; unfortunately, 25 miles of range is only slightly more than the outgoing model's 20-mile range.

Safety
Ford will offer its new Co-Pilot360 Protect driver-assistance system across all trim levels of the Fusion, taking a cue from competitors like Toyota that make safety systems standard. Co-Pilot360 Protect includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warnings, lane keep assist, a rear backup camera and automatic high-beam headlights. Upgrading to the optional Co-Pilot360 Assist adds adaptive cruise control that works down to a full stop.

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.
