Review: 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium AWD

October 4, 2016

The brand new 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium AWD edition is a sleek, smooth and quiet sedan.  The days of a cheap, loud, mid-priced (aka – NON-Luxury) sedan seem to be over with this Fusion.  In the summer, the sport edition came out fitted with a twin-turbo 2.7-litre V6 EcoBoost engine (325 horsepower, 380 lb.-ft of torque), featuring bigger brakes, a sport-oriented interior, quad exhaust and 19-inch wheels. It’s all-wheel drive configuration and twin-turbo make it a segment first.



The exterior is visually appealing and the 19-inch wheels look really good on this sedan.  The first thing I noticed on the interior was the absence of a traditional gear shifter, giving the driver and front passenger tons of arm room as well as nice big cup holders.  The twist shifter definitely took some time getting used to; if you like to ‘throw’ the car into drive, it can’t really be done with this type shifter. But, the extra room, definitely is nice and of course any well-placed, large, cup holders are also a bonus in any vehicle.



The seats were gorgeous on the car; they were a beautiful white colour, making the interior look refined and expensive.  The leather detailing could also be seen on the inside of each of the doors.



There are also several new technologies, including adaptive cruise control with pedestrian detection, automatic parallel and perpendicular parking functionality, SYNC 3, SYNC Connect, fully voice-activated controls for hands-free calling, music selection and climate controls.  I love how easy it is to use all the various technologies.  Young and old Fusion owners will have no problem utilizing the full technological capabilities of the Fusion Titanium.

The back seat has ample leg room for adults and 2 car seats fit in nicely with quick and easy installation.  The seats also fold down giving access to the trunk and make oversized cargo easy to transport.


Another favorite part of the vehicle was the trunk.  It barely has a lip on it as you can see from the image of the groceries below.  Having a nearly zero-entry trunk makes lifting in groceries, strollers, golf clubs, luggage and more easier for families and drivers of all types and ages.  I really liked not having a super deep trunk.



 Overall, the 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium Fusion is a great vehicle.  Well priced at $43138, nice looking and a quiet ride you would expect from a luxury badged vehicle.  Check this one out if you are in the market for a sedan!
