Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 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 four-cylinder engines is available. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid (Energi) variants are also offered. All engines pair with a six-speed automatic transmission, except for the hybrid versions, which have a continuously variable automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. Competitors include the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata.

What’s New on the 2020 Ford Fusion?

The FordPass Connect telematics system is now standard.

What Features in the 2020 Ford Fusion Are Most Important?

Standard active safety features include forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high-beam headlights.

Available features include adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, power-adjustable front seats, leather-trimmed seats, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a power moonroof, an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system, navigation, a Sony premium stereo and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Should I Buy the 2020 Ford Fusion?

The Fusion remains a good-driving mid-size sedan with noteworthy ride and handling. The available Sync 3 touchscreen multimedia system is easy to use, but the car’s backseat feels cramped and thick pillars limit forward visibility. The Fusion was last redesigned for the 2013 model year, and Ford says this is the last generation of the sedan. Going forward, the automaker is turning the bulk of its attention to SUVs and trucks.

A great car before its time.

Never thought I would buy another FORD. But here I am. I got the 2020 fusion SE hybrid. I absolutely love this car. Fully equipped which I love. Has more to offer then most cars at an affordable price. I bought mine for $27K with 12,382 miles on it. Runs great, I'm averaging about 45 MPG. Hint. Put the car into echo mode, and don't take off so fast. I use the gas peddle a bit more when going down a hill while on battery. I think this is a great before its time. A buddy of mine has his mileage at 275K on an older model. Bill
