2020 Ford Fusion Gets New Iconic Silver Color: First Look

The 2020 model year will become the last for the Ford Fusion in North America, at least in its current sedan form. Those who are beholden to the nameplate should be excited for the Fusion’s rebirth as a crossover-like wagon, which we have spied undergoing testing in mule form last October.

But despite its impending discontinuation, the Fusion did see a few changes and updates for the 2020 model year, including the addition of three new exterior colors:¬†Alto Blue Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, and Iconic Silver. Here’s our first look at the new Iconic Silver hue.

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.

    Ford’s CEO’s decision to cancel their automobiles except Mustang basically handing potential customers over to the competition. This is a costly mistake relying on only Crossovers–SUV & P/U Trucks.

    Please Ford. Rethink your decision to stop selling the Fusion sedan in the US. The car has a fantastic look and it’s worth a redesign adding the new rear wheel/Awd chassis from the Explorer. Offer three models like a base, a platinum and a real performance ST. The Fusion sold well From 2016 through 2019 considering in 2019 the announcement was made of it’s future demise along with little to no advertising devoted to the Fusion

    I know these comments will never reach the decision makers at Ford, but having been a devoted fan of Ford for years currently owning a purchased new 2017 Edge Sport that belongs to my wife. I decided I nolonger wanted to drive an SUV and traded my 2017 Escape for a sedan. My Escape was an excellent SUV, but I decided I wanted a luxury type sedan that offered performance. The pricey Fusion Sport was nolonger available and the one Taurus SHO at my dealership was also pricey, at the time offered zero rebates and very limited discounts. Yes. I love the Mustang. But I needed something roomier that wasn’t an SUV. I ended up purchasing a loaded 2018 black Chrysler 300C Hemi demo with 6000 miles for $16,000 less than the 2019 SHO or the discountinued Fusion Sport. It has more passenger room and performance than the SHO or Fusion Sport at a price of a basically equipped Fusion SEL. It makes me wonder how is Ford losing money selling the Fusion. I love my older design Chrysler 300C which may be discountinued in a few years and there are still those who purchase sedans. In this case, at least for now. You’ve lost a customer and I’m sure many more along the way with your decision to discountinue selling sedans in the country that built the Ford brand.

    I wonder if they will even restart production, or start to convert the assembly line over instead.

    The Fusion was a great car. I have one, and it just feels like it hits the perfect spot for me, but like many people, there are maybe a dozen times a year I wish it was a wagon. With no wagons available, people then chose CUVs.

    Sedan sales have been off lately. Even Accord has a hard time selling 20K a month, when they sold almost twice that in years past.

    My next vehicle might be an Edge (only if it looks nothing like the new Escape or new Explorer), an older Explorer, or maybe a Ranger.
