The Ford Fusion was discontinued years ago, but the beloved sedan is still racking up accolades from a variety of sources to this day. In recent years, that includes being named the third-best mid-size car in J.D. Power’s 2023 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study, one of the best 10-year-old used cars for the money by iSeeCars, and one of the fastest-accelerating vehicles in its segment by Consumer Reports, though both the regular model and the electrified Energi have also experienced some of the biggest price drops of any used model in recent years, too. Now, the 2019 Ford Fusion – specifically – has been named as one of Kelley Blue Book’s 10 best all-wheel drive vehicles priced under $20k, too.
“The 2019 Ford Fusion is one of the newest vehicles on this list, meaning it’s a strong value for its feature set,” KBB said of its selection. “If you don’t want or need an SUV, the Fusion AWD can even be found in high-spec Titanium trim for less than $20,000.”
The purpose of this particular list is to highlight some more affordable all-wheel drive models as winter sets in, which is particularly notable for folks that live in places that see snow and ice. In the latest version of this list, the 2019 Ford Fusion ranked seventh, behind the 2018 Subaru Outback, 2016 Toyota RAV4, 2016 Honda CR-V, 2015 Toyota Highlander, 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, and 2016 Mazda CX-9, as well as ahead of the 2021 Mazda 3, 2018 Nissan Rogue, and 2019 Subaru Impreza.
“There are plenty of great AWD hatchback, SUV, sedan and wagon models out there at almost any price point, so car shoppers should have many options from which to choose,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Kelley Blue Book. “As always, when shopping for maximum used-car value, shoppers should look for well-maintained, well-documented individual cars rather than focusing on a specific trim level or color.”
