Our team at Dingwall Ford in Kenora wants you to know that the Ford Fusion with gas, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid powertrain options is better than ever. If you’re headed to college, starting a commute, or in the market for an all-around good sedan, the Fusion is hard to beat.
With real choices that matter in power and handling, fun technology, and safety features that save lives, the Fusion is worth a second look!
Power & Handling
You’ve got some choices to make! The standard 2.5L Duratec I-4 is coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission that cuts your time at the gas station with an EPA-estimated 31 hwy MPG on the Fusion S.
With two available EcoBoost engines, plus hybrid and plug-in hybrid options, there is real power under the hood of this car. Both EcoBoost engines, the 1.5L and the 2.0L, combine turbocharging, direct injection, and twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) to help enhance performance and efficiency. With the 2.0L, drivers also have the option of steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
The 2.0L I-4 Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine and electric motor deliver 188 combined horsepower for those looking for more eco-friendly options. You’ll be impressed with a smooth and efficient drive in the hybrid with an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT).
The Fusion Plug-in Hybrid leaves decisions up to you. Choose gas, electric, or a combination of both. Auto EV mode uses plug-in power first and then makes a smooth switch over to gas when needed. You can also choose EV Now mode, which utilizes primarily plug-in power, or EV Later mode, which saves your plug-in power for future use.
If you’re concerned at all about charging stations, don’t be. Optimal utilization just takes a little planning. Use the MyFord Mobile app or the myfordmobile.com website to monitor and schedule charging for your vehicle while you’re on the road.
Once you charge, you shouldn’t have to worry much about recharging - the Plug-in Hybrid has an EPA-estimated range of 610 miles with a full charge and full tank of gas. That will get you where you need to go!
Stay connected - no matter how far your adventure takes you! With available features like the voice-activated SYNC 3 system, you won’t be too far from any of your most important contacts, playlists, or favorite apps. You’ll love the user-friendly display that works just like your smartphone - with a swipe, tap, or pinch.
If you choose to opt-in for the voice-activated touchscreen Navigation System, you’ll also receive a five-year prepaid SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link trial subscription. More than just music, this entertainment system enthralls and engages. Plus, you can stay on top of weather forecasts, sports scores, and gas station locations.
FordPass Connect is just one more way we are keeping you connected. FordPass Connect turns your vehicle into a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot that connects up to 10 devices at a time up to 50 feet outside your vehicle - all from your smartphone.
With FordPass, you can lock/unlock your vehicle, start/stop your engine, and create a start schedule. You can also access essential vehicle data, like fuel levels and charges, oil life, and tire pressure. If you need Roadside Assistance, get in touch directly through your phone and be reassured help is on the way.
Your safety is our priority. With Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies, driver-assist features provide an extra set of eyes to help you see the things you might otherwise miss while you’re out on the road.
These features are standard across most Ford models, but it’s still a good idea to ask a sales team member which of these features are available on the model in which you’re most interested. Safety features include:
- Blind Spot Information System. When a vehicle enters your blind spot, our system alerts you by illuminating a small light in the corresponding side-view mirror. From now on, there will be no guessing about lane changes.
- Lane-Keeping System. If you inadvertently veer from your detected lane of traffic, our system will alert you to refocus your attention to the road ahead.
- Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. Traffic often comes to an abrupt slow-down or stop. If you’re not paying close attention, you may put yourself in danger. Our system alerts you to slow down, and if you’re unable to react in time, the system activates Automatic Emergency Braking.
At Dingwall Ford in Kenora, our team knows looking at the Ford Fusion is a smart choice. The Fusion provides eco-friendly, smart options for the commuter!
