2017 Ford Fusion facelift revealed in Detroit

2017 Ford Fusion Sport

The 2017 Ford Fusion got a facelift, along with a new V6 Sport model, which was revealed at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.

Under the hood, the Fusion Sport will get a twin-turbocharged 2.7-litre V6 Ecoboost engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. This is good enough to produce 325 hp and 474 Nm of torque, higher than all their main rivals in this segment.

Another major performance benefits are an all-wheel drive system and continuously controlled damping suspension.

Visually, the Fusion Sport gets large 19-inch wheels, blacked-out grille, and quad exhaust tips.

Ford has also added a new top Fusion Platinum variant. It comes with a different front grille finished in Magnetic paint, 19-inch polished wheels, and antiqued Cocoa & Venetian leathers. For the engine, it will get the turbocharged 2.0-litre Ecoboost motor, connected to an all-wheel-drive setup.

All models will also benefit from Ford’s latest SYNC 3 infotainment system.

Expect the 2017 Ford Fusion to reach UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and other GCC countries before the end of the year.

What do you think?



  1. Fusion with 325 BHP, in middle east, never 🙂

    This model was named as Fusion ST earlier. Pretty good in pictures.
    Look at that gear knob!!!

  2. Dont think this will be launched here, and even if it does it will priced higher than jag xf or audi A5

  3. Hmm.. an all wheel drive Fusion! That tells me an all wheel drive Mustang is on the way 🙂

  4. It should sell good if its introduced here at around 150K-160K price range…as of now there is no real competition for this car other than few from European premium brands which are much higher priced like Volvo S60 and Audi A4….

    • Current Ecoboost version is being sold @ 120K+ which produces 240hp….and it isn’t sold in big numbers here in UAE….

      I feel, only chance it will have of good sale in UAE would be if it is sold @ max 130K for full Options… If it is 150K-160K range, buyers would feel better buying an Audi A4/A5, VW CC V6, Jag XF/XE, Benz C200, Lincoln mkz, and then we have maxima, impala, avalon, accord 3.5, charger….
