New 2019 Ford Fusion Debuts New Drive Assist Tech, Plug-In Hybrid Model
The 2019 Ford Fusion is officially on its way – and it just might be the best version of the model yet. For the 2019 model year, the Fusion has received a number of new features that are sure to leave a lasting impression on consumers. From more standard safety tech to an improved eco-friendly powertrain, the Fusion is ready to rock its segment.
This compact car now comes standard with the innovative Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology. This is considered the most advanced suite of standard driver assistance technologies in the industry. It includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot information system, lane keeping system, a rear backup camera and auto high-beam lighting.
Along with this new safety tech, the 2019 Fusion will also have a new standard engine for the SE model and higher trim levels. This is a 1.5-liter EcoBoost® engine. That’s not the only change to the powertrain lineup, though.
An all-new Fusion Energi, a plug-in hybrid vehicle, will also be available for the new year. It has an EPA-estimated electric-only range of 25 miles, which is nearly 20% more than the current model. It also has a new 9-kWh lithium-ion battery, providing the hybrid vehicle with more energy capacity without making the battery pack physically larger.
