Overview

By Matt Keegan (Last Updated 4/25/2018)

The 2014 Ford Fusion is a roomy, midsize sedan and one of the best sellers in a highly competitive segment. Its dashing style, family of four-cylinder engines and available all-wheel drive help the Fusion stand out.

The Ford Fusion seats five and is available in S, SE and Titanium trims. A 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine is standard and three turbocharged four-cylinder engines are available. All-wheel drive is available on the Titanium trim.

The 2014 Ford Fusion gains several available features, including ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and inflatable rear seatbelts. A turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine is new as Ford began to phase out the 1.6-liter engine.

Exterior

The Ford Fusion offers a sleek layout, with a gaping grille that’s offset by a pair of sporty headlamps. A pronounced lower grille opening amplifies the front fascia. Distinctive sculpting is found on the hood, profile and the raised rear deck. A sweeping roofline and rising beltline are evident along the sides.

Standard equipment includes a chrome grille, automatic headlamps and 16-inch steel wheels. Higher trims bring in 17- or 18-inch wheels, fog lights and power-folding heated sideview mirrors with integrated turn signals. A rear spoiler and dual exhaust tips are also offered.

Interior

The 2014 Fusion offers excellent interior room, with plush front seats, a 60/40-split folding rear seat and 16 cubic feet of trunk space.

Standard cloth seats, piano-black trim and well-fitted panels are found in the Fusion’s cabin. Leather upholstery is available for a more refined look. All controls are logically placed, the cabin is quiet and the doors close with a reassuring thud.

The base model comes with keyless entry and full power accessories. There are also multiple storage compartments and beverage holders, as well as a tilt-and-telescoping steering column. Available equipment includes a power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats and a power moonroof.

Performance

The Fusion’s standard engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 175 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. There’s also a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 178 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, as well as a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that creates 182 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. At the top of the range, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine offers 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.

Front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard in most models, while a six-speed manual transmission comes with the 1.6-liter engine. All-wheel drive is also available and offered exclusively with the 2.0-liter engine.

The two smaller engines supply the best fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 25/36 mpg city/highway. The all-wheel drive model makes an EPA-estimated 22/31 mpg city/highway.

Technology

Standard technology features in the 2014 Fusion include Ford’s voice-activated Sync system, Bluetooth, a USB port, an auxiliary input jack and a four-speaker sound system.

Available features include the MyFord Touch infotainment system with an 8-inch display, as well as keyless access and ignition, navigation, satellite radio, HD Radio and a 12-speaker Sony audio system.

Safety upgrades include a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist and forward collision warning.
