Ford Fusion Models and Fusion History

Originally planning on calling their family sedan the Futura, Ford was forced to reconsider ahead of introduction to due a trademark issue. Instead, Ford chose to brand the car as the Fusion for a 2006 model year introduction. The Fusion sedan's styling, solid value and technology provided the first real threat from an American automaker against the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. Released as a front-wheel drive sedan, the Ford Fusion would gain the option of all-wheel drive in 2007. The 2010 Ford Fusion was substantially updated with a new front end being the first of many changes. A gasoline-conserving Fusion Hybrid and a performance-focused Fusion Sport with a 263-horsepower engine also debuted. Three years after the major facelift, an all-new version of the sedan was unveiled with attention-grabbing exterior styling courtesy of Aston Martin. A hybrid version of the Fusion returned with the new generation joined by a plug-in hybrid Fusion Energi. A styling facelift and equipment updates have been made to the Ford Fusion for the 2017 model year. Since 2006, the Ford Fusion body style has been a mainstay in the NASCAR Sprint Cup stock car racing series.
