Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2015 Ford Fusion OVERVIEW
Since its debut in 2012, the current Fusion has succeeded in quickly climbing the ranks within the competitive family sedan market. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since it manages to unify striking design, sporty performance and value, a compelling combination of features for a midsize 4-door sedan.
What's New for 2015
Ford has made minor changes to the Fusion this year. All-wheel drive, previously only available on the top-level Titanium, is now available on midrange SE models. New exterior colors are also offered.
Choosing Your Ford Fusion
Once again Ford offers a full range of engines in the 2015 Fusion. From several gas-powered choices to hybrid and plug-in hybrid options, it’s no wonder that the Fusion has been so well received.
Your best bet is to start by selecting from the three levels that Ford has divided the conventional engines into. If you decide to move from that trim to a hybrid or hybrid plug-in upgrades always start with that level’s features as a base.
While each trim level can create a compelling case for itself, we feel that the SE models are the best choice in terms of amenities and value. That being said, the base S delivers upscale styling and good value for its cost.
Ford's offers aren't as strong as we saw last month but that doesn't mean a good deal can't be found. Rebates are particularly strong on the 2019 Edge when configured in SEL... View All Ford Lease Deals
