2019 Ford Fusion
In a weird move, Ford has made some changes to the Fusion.
Unlike the previous revisions from a couple of yeas ago, the new ones are not an improvement.
(new one on top) At all.
The lower bumper and lights are now almost weirdly busy.
In the back, things have been squared off. Again, why??? (2019 model on top)
The main changes are the new Co-Pilot360 features that comes standard.
It includes emergency braking, blind spot info, lane keeping system, rear camera and auto high beam.
And the Energi version now has a 20% longer EV range. With means around 24 miles instead of 20.
Which is still not great…
Ford has mentioned the next Fusion will be sold in made in China, but not imported to the US.
Which is pretty sad. (They also mentioned development on the 2020 Fusion had stopped all together)
The Fusion is still one of the best looking sedan available. And of the best driving.
It is really weird for Ford to give up completely on the mid sized market.
They still sold over 209 000 of them last year. Sure, it is down from the previous years, but its is a 6 year old model!
I cannot imagine Honda and Toyota giving up on the Accord and Camry. They are still making money from these.
Even Mazda has an all new Mazda6 planned.
And there is a new Altima right around the corner.
What is wrong with Ford ?
