The new Ford Fusion in Crestwood is a great midsize sedan; it is fun to drive and quite stylish. Not only is it appealing outside; but it is also spacious and safe; the ideal family car for the young and not so young.

The Ford Fusion from all angles:

The current Ford Fusion is in its fifth year. When it was first introduced, it was an immediate hit with the car buying public, and little has changed. The Fusion looks great on the outside, has an elegant but practical interior, and is available with multiple engine choices. Five years on, the Fusion remains fresh and desirable.

The big update for 2017 is the infotainment system. The much-appreciated Sync 3 has replaced the outdated MyTouch system; the Sync 3 is faster and easier to use, featuring virtual buttons.

There have been tasteful restyling touches as well; all models have a rotary shifter and push-button ignition system. Depending on your taste and needs, the Ford Fusion in Crestwood can have LED headlights and a fully automated parking system. The top-of-the-line Platinum version has every available option, including full leather upholstery.

If you like power, no problem. The Sports Trim Fusion has a 2.7 L V6 with 325 HP. This engine, although not the same, is very similar to the engine found in the ever-popular Ford F-150 pickup. No midsize family car can compete with the V6 Ford Fusion Sport.

Performance and economy:

The base models, S and SE, have as standard a 175 HP, 2.5 L four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain arrangement gives impressive fuel economy; 21 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the open road.


As standard, a Ford Fusion has anti-lock brakes, traction control, and stability control along with a full complement of airbags. Another feature of the Sync 3 infotainment system is its ability to dial 911 in the event of a collision. To allow parents to set certain parameters for young drivers in the home, the MyKey system is standard.
