According to our sources, the aging Fusion model released in 2012 will soon be replaced with its redesigned next-generation version. This family sedan has been one of the best-selling in the market, so it should maintain that reputation with its brand-new platform, design and engine options. The 2019 Ford Fusion Redesign was canceled, and Declining Sales Are To Blame.

Exterior

The 2019 Ford Fusion is going to make its appearance as a four-door mid-size family sedan. The first innovation that this model will undergo includes its brand-new platform. Reportedly, the new Fusion will abandon its current CD4 platform and get a new one. Ford will also use lightweight materials such as aluminum in its chassis construction in order to save some weight. Therefore, the new Fusion will appear lighter than its predecessor, which will largely improve its efficiency and overall performance. The whole vehicle seems lower and wider which promises better handling and stability, but most of all you will notice its bigger dimensions and longer wheelbase. This will provide more space inside its cabin. When it comes to its exterior design, the new Fusion will get more coupe-like design and look aggressive, especially in the front fascia. It will stand on 18-inch aluminum wheels as standard and probably offer some new exterior colors.

Interior


The interior of the 2019 Ford Fusion will definitely undergo some serious changes and updates. Its cabin will be more modern, comfortable and spacious due to its longer wheelbase and bigger dimensions. Ford will tend to use some high-quality materials, such as wood and leather, at least in higher trim levels. The driver will get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a modern dashboard and an upgraded instrument cluster. The current infotainment system will be replaced with a brand-new SYNC3 provided on a larger touch-screen display. It will include some of the most popular next-generation features such as navigation system, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. You can expect other connectivity options for your phone, too. When it comes to safety systems and driver assist features, you should not worry because the Fusion will provide adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, pedestrian detection, park assist and others.

Engine

When it comes to engine of the 2019 Ford Fusion, this model should abandon its base 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated inline-four. Instead, it will probably employ a 1.5-liter turbo-three gas engine that delivers 190 horsepower. In higher trim levels, such as the range-topping Sport, the new Fusion will use a 2.7-liter V6 that hits 325 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. It will probably be mated to a six-speed automatic, but it might offer some new transmission choices.

2019 Ford Fusion Release Date and Price

The release date of the 2019 Ford Fusion should happen by the end of 2018, although it has not been announced yet. The estimated price of a base model starts at $23,000.
