Overview

What's New in the 2018 Ford Fusion?

After Ford gave it a comprehensive midcycle revamp last year, the Fusion stays the same.  See the 2018 Ford Fusion models for sale near you

Which Fusion is the Best?

There's quite a gap in price between the SE and Titanium models. So buying an SE and spending a little extra on options is a good way to go. Or perhaps the budget can stretch to the Titanium or beyond. Find a Ford Fusion for sale

How Much Does a 2018 Ford Fusion Cost?

The 2018 Ford Fusion comes in S, SE, Titanium, Platinum and V6 Sport trim levels. The S ($22,995) kicks things off with 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic halogen headlights, LED tail lights, power windows and locks, air conditioning, cruise control, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel with auxiliary controls, intermittent wipers, a height-adjustable manual driver's seat, a trip computer, Bluetooth, MyKey parental control capability, a rearview camera, Sync voice command functionality with MyFord mobile app support and a 4-speaker audio system with an auxiliary input jack and USB port. The SE ($24,270) steps up to 17-in wheels, SecuriCode keypad access, an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with adjustable lumbar support, a 6-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, satellite radio, six audio speakers instead of four and eligibility for a variety of options the base S doesn't get, such as turbocharged engines and a navigation system that upgrades the default central display to an 8-in full-color touchscreen. An optional Technology package for the SE includes the Sync 3 infotainment touchscreen. The Titanium ($31,270) receives a powerful 2.0-liter turbo engine, 18-in wheels (a few different 19-in designs are available), fog lights, dual exhaust tips, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, driver's-seat memory settings, a 10-way power adjustment for the front passenger, rear parking sensors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, ambient cabin lighting, aluminum pedals and an exclusive 12-speaker Sony audio system with the Sync 3 interface. The Platinum ($37,770) gets everything the Titanium trim offers, plus quilted leather upholstery, power adjustment for the steering wheel and its own grille insert. The V6 Sport ($34,625) has the most powerful engine and all-wheel drive as standard, 19-in alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, LED lighting, adjustable suspension, bigger brakes, a rear spoiler, bespoke black mesh grille treatment, four exhaust tailpipes, leather/simulated-suede upholstery, heated front seats, self-dimming rearview and driver's-side mirrors and a 9-speaker sound system. Options on lower trim levels include various items that come standard on higher trims. Navigation, adaptive cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, 110-volt outlet, automated parking and a sunroof are among those available extras. Trunk space measures 16 cu ft. Not the best in the class, but perfectly acceptable.
