Ford has gone all in on the Fusion, releasing a new look and a new suite of safety features for the 2019 model year.
The 2019 Ford Fusion will roll in rocking a sleeker front end that boasts a new mesh grille, a reworked front bumper and new fog light assemblies. The rear end also gets a helping of new style, as Ford adds revised taillight graphics, and a new, flatter bumper, a new bumper insert, and new exhaust exits. Also new on the 2019 Fusion are its wheel options and a few colors.
While the new looks are great, the big news for the 2019 Fusion is the introduction of Ford’s new Co-Pilot360 suite of safety goodies. This system will come with all the technology to tickle the IIHS pink, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot information system, lane-keep assist, a rearview camera and auto high-beams. What’s more, this will be standard on every 2019 Fusion.
For those looking for even more advanced systems, there will also be the optional Co-Pilot360 Assist. This will add voice-activated navigation, and SiriusXM Traffic and Traffic Link.
The 2019 Fusion will be available in five trims, S, SE, SEL, Titanium, and V6 Sport. Those who prefer the Fusion Hybrid, is will be available in the SE, SEL, and Titanium trims.
There is no official release date for the 2019 Fusion, nor are the pricing details. I suspect a moderately higher price than the current model, which starts from $23,090 with destination fees.
