The midsize sedan segment has not been exciting in the recent years, but all that is about to change with the 2017 Ford Fusion. The 2017 Ford Fusion brings speed to the midsize sedan segment that is known to be one of the most play-safe segment in the industry. That being said, if you are in the market for an exciting midsize sedan, the 2017 Ford Fusion might just be exactly what you are looking for.

2017 Ford Fusion: Rekindling Midsize Segment Excitement

Under normal circumstance, we would start with the exterior of the 2017 Ford Fusion and work our way into the interior before we talk about the engine. However, since the 2017 Ford Fusion, which is one heck of a fast midsize sedan, is our main concern, we will work our way from the inside out.

Now here's the deal, Motor Trend reported that the 2017 Ford Fusion is powered by a 2.7-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine that delivers 325 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. However, there is a catch as you will need to put in 93 octane gasoline for the 2017 Ford Fusion to produce that output. This is quite a drawback if you are from California as the usual gas available in this state is 91 octane.

The 2017 Ford Fusion's powertrain is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that delivers the power through an all-wheel drive (AWD) setting. In addition, you will also find standard paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. The 2017 Ford Fusion, regardless of whether you can put in 93 octane gasoline in it or not, will most definitely still give you a very exciting driving experience. The 2017 Ford Fusion can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 5.4 seconds and yes, that is faster than basically any of its midsize sedan rivals.

2017 Ford Fusion: The Interior

The 2017 Ford Fusion will greet you with a premium cabin. According to Torque News, the 2017 Ford Fusion has heated suede wrapped leather sports front seats that also have power adjustment controls. In addition, the 2017 Ford Fusion also sports a leather wrapped steering wheel along with aluminum sports pedals and features like keyless entry and a premium infotainment system. Other standard features include power locks, air condition system and push button start.

2017 Ford Fusion: The Exterior

Now comes another exciting part, the 2017 Ford Fusion's exterior. The 2017 Ford Fusion features a set of 19-inch black-painted wheels along with an aggressive front fascia and grille. Find your way to the rear-section and you have a rear spoiler and quad exhaust tips that basically makes the 2017 Ford Fusion look meaner. There are a whole lot of other things to talk about but it is better to simply let your eyes be the judge when it comes to the looks of the 2017 Ford Fusion.

2017 Ford Fusion: The Price

Another great thing about the 2017 Ford Fusion is the fact that it comes with a good price. Reports state that the 2017 Ford Fusion has a starting price of $34,480. Add $1,625 and you get a bunch of driver assist package. Add another $2,000 for the Sport package and your 2017 Ford Fusion becomes even cooler. To cut the long story short, the 2017 Ford Fusion is one exciting midsize car and will be worth every penny.
