Take your pick:
The freshened 2019 Fusion remains in healthy supply nationwide. This year brings more standard equipment, including blind spot monitoring and automatic emergency braking. Base MSRPs have increased by $645 to $6,190, depending on the trim level.
As usual, the mid-range Fusion SE is most abundant, followed by the high-end Titanium. The entry-level S isn't nearly as popular with buyers and can be hard to find. The Sport is also somewhat rare and less likely to be discounted.
The carryover 2020 Fusion began arriving at dealers last month. The Sport trim is no longer offered. Contrary to previous statements, Ford now says the Fusion will remain in production at least through 2021.
Current factory offers vary by region and are scheduled to remain in effect through January 2, 2020 unless otherwise noted. Examples shown here are for California.
Multiple cash offers:
The 2019 Fusion models equipped with a Ford EcoBoost engine, which is most of them, carry a $750 bonus. There's also a $1,500 Select Inventory bonus on models in stock longer than 61 days.
In addition, buyers who finance through Ford at standard rates will get a $1,000 finance bonus, and buyers with a vehicle to trade are eligible for a $1,500 trade-in bonus. That brings your total potential savings on a 2019 Fusion to $4,750, a generous amount for this model. Note the trade-in bonus is scheduled to expire November 13. We expect Ford to either renew it or offer something similar at that time.
A $1,250 Select Inventory bonus is available on the 2020 Fusion, but that's the only cash offer currently.
Best lease deal:
You can now lease a 2019 Fusion SE with Co-Pilot360 from $199 for 36 months (10,500 miles a year) with $1,999 due at signing. The effective monthly cost is $255, an exceptional value for this price class.
But note: You must have a trade-in to qualify for this lease. Also be aware this offer reflects a Select Inventory bonus of $250, the standard amount on Ford leases this month. The cash at signing will be $250 higher on non-qualifying models.
Lease offers on the incoming 2020 Fusion start at $279 for 39 months with $2,417 due at signing. The effective monthly cost is $341, not a good value in our book. The good news is offers will improve once supplies firm up and the 2019s sell down.
Pay no interest, get cash:
In place of the standard rebate on a 2019 Fusion, Ford offers 0% financing for 60 months, or 0.9% for 72 months. The deal comes with a $1,000 bonus cash, or $1,750 on EcoBoost models. You also remain eligible for the $1,500 trade-in bonus.
Offers on the 2020 Fusion range from 0.9% for 39 months to 2.9% for 60 months, without any cash.
