Specs look pretty interesting but one thing I noticed right off the bat is the styling of the front end. It's like they took a huge step back to the days of the ugly ford 500...The Facelifted 2017 Ford Fusion Gets Sporty With A 325 HP Twin-Turbo V6
This thing could be a beast, twin turbo V6, 325hp and 350tq. I wonder if it is the same AWD system as the RS?
The problem with the Ford 500 was the name, people didn't realize it was still a Taurus. ..And Ford couldn't find enough people who remembered the Galaxy 500 LOL
I'm on the fence about the front end. I'll need to see it in person. I dig the quad tailpipes though.
That was my thought as well. Comparing them side by side it is hard to point out the differences between the two, but I very much like the styling of the current one and very much dislike the styling of the new one. I absolutely hate the facelift on the base Focus and this looks exactly like that to me.
That was the problem. I never thought that I'd say this, but that car really needs a front license plate. Once that gap is covered up, I'm not bothered by the front end anymore. The slightly sportier front lip and fog lights help also.
Is it weird that I'd really like to own a ST Diesel wagon here in the US? That would be a unicorn.
I agree, I see more of a focus front end, but I think I like the last gen fusion grill better for some reason, just can't quite figure out why. I think they are just saying it's ugly like the 500, not that it looks like a 500It looks like a focus front end. Maybe I'm looking at a different photo but I don't know where people are seeing a five hundred
Yeah that's what I was trying to get at. I love the current fusion front-end and think it makes the car look rather sporty compared to previous models but now they've flip flopped and made the engine more sporty and the front-end more bland (500-like bland).I agree, I see more of a focus front end, but I think I like the last gen fusion grill better for some reason, just can't quite figure out why.

Yes, but alas, I am incapable of driving any vehicle that has less than 3 foot pedalsI like it. I don't see anything relatively boring about the refresh, personally.
That, along with the huge drivetrain upgrade (obvi), should make for a really nice family daily driver.
