Used Ford Fusion Information
Ford has produced two versions of the Fusion that are both very different from one another. In Europe, there was a compact multi-purpose vehicle sold between 2002 and 2012, which was a longer version of their popular Fiesta model, while in the United States it is a mid-size sedan that has been built from 2005 to the current day. It was a return to that particular market for Ford and it was very well received upon release.
The initial run of the first generation was from 2006-2009, and on release the Fusion was offered with three finishes â S, SE and SEL. However only front-wheel-drive was available on all options during the 2006 run â this is something to bear in mind when searching for this particular model on the used market.
In 2007, Ford upgraded the Fusion to all-wheel-drive and added elements such as front-seat airbags and satellite radio, with the Ford Sync media and communication system appearing for the first time in 2008. Further tweaks were made, including an improved sound system.
The main update that Ford made to the Fusion for the 2010-2012 run focused on the engines. A more fuel-efficient 2.5L 175hp was added as the standard engine, with a 3.0L 240hp V6 option and, for the Sport option, a very perky 263hp 3.5L V6. With a good mix of performance, handling and its notably spacious cabin with room behind for the family, this three-year, second-generation offering is a popular and competitive option on the used market.
The focus for the 2012 current model of the Fusion was to make the engines more fuel-efficient. This range goes from a 1.5L EcoBoost turbocharged engine up to a 2.5L Duratec. It has retained its road-handling ability as well as incorporating greater efficiency. This third-gen is starting to become more widely available second-hand.
