Ford Fusion has received what is vulgarly known in the industry as a mid-cycle facelift. It is performed to give the car up-to-date looks so that it can hold market share until its new generation appears. As well as its 2016 restyling, the second generation Fusion has been presented in 2012 at NAIAS. If tha pace continues, expect the third generation to appear by 2020. There will be plenty of time to live with the restyled D segment sedan.
The most visible changes are on the front and rear bumpers, as well as headligths and taillights.
Inside, the shifter has been replaced by a rotary gear shift dial. But the most important change is the return of the Sport version, the one you see in these pictures, equipped with a 2.7 EcoBoost twin-turbo engine that will deliver 242 kW and 475 Nm of torque sourced to all four wheels.
Produced in Mexico, the new Fusion will also be renewed in other markets to where it is exported, such as Brazil, in 2016.
