The New Velocity Blue Color For The 2019 Ford Fusion: First Look


Despite Ford’s announcement that it won’t redesign and will discontinue the Ford Fusion midsize sedan after the current generation runs its course, the 2019 Ford Fusion is adding three new exterior colors to its color palette. These include Agate Black, Rich Copper Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, and Velocity Blue. Here’s our first look at the new Velocity Blue hue.


Assigned order code E7, Velocity Blue is one of two blue hues available for the 2019 Ford Fusion, with the other color simply being called “Blue”.

The new Velocity Blue color is included in the base price of the 2019 Ford Fusion, and is available in conjunction with all trim levels and interior color combinations except for Titanium models equipped with Russet seats.

2019 Ford Fusion Trim Levels:

  • S
  • SE
  • SEL
  • Titanium
  • V6 Sport

2019 Ford Fusion Interior Color Combinations:

  • Medium Light Stone
  • Ebony
  • Ebony Black
  • Light Putty
  • Russet

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. Models in the Velocity Blue exterior color are already on dealer lots. Availability varies by dealer, so be sure to check with yours for complete details.

    Ford will commit a huge mistake if they cancel the Fusion and the Lincoln Continental that uses the same body. This is Ford’s best selling sedan! The Focus was their better seller but not anymore, and the Fusion Hybrid is the only true competition against the Toyota Prius, beating their sales numbers for several months in the past years.

    Keep all the Fusion versions, from the basic S to the Titanium and Sport, especially in the Hybrid and Energi models, too. If not, the imports will take over and the U.S. will lose its lead in sedans worldwide.

      The Continental rides on an extended version of the same platform as the one used by the Fusion, but it’s far from the same body. Heck, even the platform is notably different from one to the other. If anything, it’s the MKZ that is most directly related to the Fusion.

      Ford’s plan involves replacing the sedan with other kinds of cars, and I’m curious what that might mean… though I’m not a fan of the idea of sedans being discontinued. The Fusion is a great car… so is the MKZ and the Continental. But it appears that Ford’s priorities currently lie elsewhere.

    Why did Ford decide not to cancel the fusion?

    Why are the mufflers rusting on the 2018 Ford Ecosports? We own two and they are both rusting.

    We were told the Ecosport would get 25 MPG around town. We are lucky to get 22 MPG. What’s the deal?

      The Fusion is still getting discontinued, just not right away (unlike the other models, which were discontinued quicker).

      I recommend starting a forum thread in our forums abut the other items you’re discussing, so as to keep the conversation focused on the Fusion in this thread.
