All-wheel drive propels Ford Fusion

 

By Jerry Robbin

The 2018 Ford Fusion Sport features all-wheel drive, which is a great addition in the Snow Belt area like Chicago.

Driving impression

The 2018 Ford Fusion is one of the few mid-size sedans available with all-wheel drive, and features a sporty-feeling suspension and sharp steering. It has a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 with 325 horsepower, which is impressive on the highway. The steering is very responsive and the braking stops in any situation without any fading.
