The Fusion V6 Sport is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.7L EcoBoost V6 that generates 325 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of torque. The V6 Sport model also gets a continuously controlled damping for real-time suspension tuning based on setup and road inputs. The system features pothole detection technology that, in less than the blink of an eye, adjusts the shock absorbers to greatly reduce the severity of impact transmitted to occupants. In terms of styling, the V6 Sport also gets deeper air intakes and a gloss black-finish mesh grille, 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler and dual twin exhaust outlets.

The Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi models return with new software that is supposed to give both hybrids a more refined and engaging feel. The 2.0L four-cylinder is also more efficient, while the Fusion Energi’s 7.6 kWh lithium-ion battery gives it a EV driving range of 19 miles.

On the styling front, the restyled Fusion gets a new face that is similar to the Focus with its more angular grille and sharper headlights. Out back there are some smaller styling tweaks.

The 2017 Fusion will arrive in showrooms this summer.
