Breaking the mold in the midsize category requires doing something truly special. Fortunately, with the 2018 Fusion, Ford has gone the extra mile and accomplished this goal, making an awesome family vehicle that does not go wanting in terms of style, performance, and amenities.
While appearances are not all that matters, there is no denying that it is pretty pleasant to drive a vehicle that you find engaging and elegant. From this perspective, you will be happy to know that the 2018 Fusion offers up smooth, alluring lines that give it a refined and exciting overall look. A choice of five Fusion models to pick from (S, SE, Titanium, Platinum, and V6 Sport), alongside a palette of 10 exterior paint choices and four interior options (some being limited to certain models) ensures that you can tailor your brand new Fusion to even the most discerning of driver tastes.
The inside of the new Fusion has enough room that drivers and their travel companions alike will all have enough space to ride in comfort and serenity. 16 cubic feet of freight volume offers enough space that you and your family or companions can pack for both a cross-country getaway or a normal day in Bismarck. In the event that you want to truly upgrade your daily routine, having access to an optional heated steering wheel and power moonroof (which also offers up access to a garage opener that works with most residential models) are sure to pique your interest. In your Fusion's console is a 4.2-inch screen (standard in S, SE, and V6 Sport) or an eight-inch LCD touchscreen (standard in Titanium and Platinum). The touchscreen provides you with access to the AppLink, SYNC 3, and 911 Assist digital tools, in addition to two USB ports that help keep your favorite gadgets and gizmos charged up.
For those who also value convenience in addition to creature comforts, optional choices like the Remote Start System are clearly worth considering. Additionally, having access to two standard 12-volt outlets is also a great way to keep everyone's tech online and connected during even the longest of road trips. For individuals who are continually searching out new areas in Bismarck, the Voice-Activated Navigation System with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link will also be a helpful inclusion to add into your custom-crafted Ford Fusion.
