Congratulations on accomplishing a key part of the American dream – looking for a ride! And what better car to be apart of your American dream than an American-designed Ford Fusion? Much more than your grandfather’s Taurus, check out just a sampling of the awards the Fusion has racked up in its over 10 years on the market:
Of course, one of the best features of purchasing a used Ford Fusion in Columbus is its all-wheel drive capability. Since 2007, the Fusion has been available with the peace of mind that comes with All-Wheel Drive (AWD). One of only two midsize sedans available with this crucial feature, it’s perfect for people who eschew the bulk and thirst of four-wheel drive SUVs for the sleek lines and nimble handling of sedans, but still have to cope with winters in Columbus. In fact, the Fusion’s AWD system is also shared with other Ford SUVs, meaning it’s made with tough components and built to last. It spends most of its life powering the front wheels only, giving you outstanding efficiency, but when called upon, can send up to 55 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels for balanced handling and all-weather capability. Another reason to consider a used AWD Fusion is that it nets you a 5-star rollover rating, vs. 4-stars in the front-wheel drive version.
Whether you decide on a second-generation Fusion Hybrid to silently tour the streets of the German Village or a first-generation Fusion with all-wheel drive to ensure you never miss a game at Huntington Park no matter the weather, the Ford Fusion is clearly a winner and can be outfitted to suit any task. However, the second generation of this vehicle remains a favorite among drivers shopping for a used Ford Fusion in Columbus. Read on to learn more about what makes the second generation Ford Fusion different, and why it is perfectly suited to Columbus lifestyle!
