In their 2018 Ford Fusion review, Edmunds remarked that “Great on-road manners and a sleek look make the [Ford] Fusion a standout among midsize sedans.” This isn’t the first time that the Ford Fusion has stood out from the pack. A driver-favorite model here at Folsom Lake Ford for many years, the 2018 Ford Fusion continues the model’s popularity with our drivers.
A 6-speed automatic transmission comes standard, with the option to add steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. An independent MacPherson strut-type suspension comes standard as well, complete with a stabilizer bar to help reduce road noise, vibration, and body roll during cornering. Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) also contributes to an out-of-this-world driving experience thanks to the incorporation of pull-drift compensation, which helps correct for road irregularities and improves overall steering feel, especially in heavy crosswinds and on crowned roads, those roads that seem to have a peak in the center and slope down toward the sides.
Looking to get more out of each mile? Take the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid for a spin. The 2.0L I-4 Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine and electric motor deliver 188 combined horsepower. They also provide an EPA-estimated 42 combined mpg. See that gas station coming up? Skip it! You can make it to the next one. The dual LCD SmartGauge® with EcoGuide helps you go even farther with real-time information and coaching to help you enhance efficiency. As an important note, you should know that the electric motor is no slouch, even on its own. If you’re in all-electric mode, you can travel up to 85 mph.
