Launch Timeframe

As of this writing, the 2019 Ford Fusion is already available at the retail level, since the Ford Hermosillo plant has been churning out the model for the past several months.

Frankie's first favorite car was a 1968 Ford Mustang, and he's had a strong appreciation for the nameplate ever since. Later in his youth he became infatuated with Eleanor, thanks to Nicholas Cage's stellar performance. Frank's a real jokester, too.

    The Fusion is the best domestic sedan , so why does Ford plans to stop its production? Are the Ford executives paid by the import competition to stop it??

    The back end looks better than the pre freshening, but I still think the original 2013 with the smaller grill looks better in the front.
    This would look very nice in Highland Green from the Mustang Bullitt

    These are great cars. what they need to do is push the AWD option more, since people need it up here in Maine. This car still looks better than all it’s competition. Keep it going with updates. They still sell a lot of them.

    Like most things in life, going the way of the dodo and uber drivers only … at the top of its sedan game of course…

    These cars outperform SHO numbers back in the 90s both in performance and fuel economy … crazy … now going dormant – very much a shame

    It isn’t, and won’t be all electric without major redesign. Hence, prepare for its demise.
