2020 Ford Fusion Gets New Rapid Red Metallic Color: First Look

2020 will be the final model year that the Ford Fusion is produced and made available in North America in its current sedan form. But those who are beholden to the nameplate should be excited for the Fusion’s rebirth as a tall crossover-like wagon, which we have spied as a mule 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: Iconic Silver, Alto Blue, and Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat. Here’s our first look at the 2020 Ford Fusion’s Rapid Red hue.


Assigned order code D4, Rapid Red is one of two metallic tinted clearcoat color options available for the 2020 Ford Fusion. The two metallic tinted clearcoat hues are the second-most expensive out of the eight total exterior color options for the model, with White Platinum being the most expensive.

Specifically, Rapid Red adds $395.00 to the price of the 2020 Ford Fusion. It is available in conjunction with all interior color combinations and all trim levels except for the base S model.

2020 Ford Fusion Trim Levels:

  • S
  • SE
  • Hybrid SE
  • SEL
  • Hybrid SEL
  • Titanium
  • Hybrid Titanium

2020 Ford Fusion Interior Color Combinations:

  • Ebony
  • Medium Light Stone
  • Russet
  • Light Putty


As of this writing, the 2020 Fusion is already available at the retail level, since the Ford Flat Rock factory in Michigan has been producing 2020 model year units for the past few months. Models in the Rapid Red exterior color are already on dealer lots, but availability varies by dealer, so check with yours for complete details.

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.

    I find it sad that the Hybrid Fusion is being killed. I still feel Ford should have a competitive midsize sedan in place if the market changes the dynamics. Please, Keep the fusion hybrid around,and use newer batteries from the Escape hybrid. It sells pretty well compared to the Camry and Accord hybrid. A lot of people still buy them. I think a family sedan which gets 50 mpg is a good value proposition. Not all buyers want an SUV, some are happy with a Sedan.

    I still like the face of the original 2013 better.
    In about 4 years, I’ll likely be checking Carmax to see when these 2020 Hybrids come in for a trade.

    Adithiya, I agree with you. First the Focus now the Fusion…Ford just keep whittling away at it passenger cars…in favor of an almost exclusive SUV line up. Sad, very sad. Maybe this type of vehicle is all the rage right now, but if you want something that handles, brakes and accelerates well, you may have to look elsewhere…
