No, that doesn’t mean the 2019 Ford Fusion comes with a fella that would help you drive the car. Co-Pilot is the name of Ford’s new and highly advanced suite of standard driver-assist technologies. They come as standard on the 2019 Fusion, giving the affordable family sedan semi-autonomous capabilities.
The main features of the 2019 Ford Fusion include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot information system, lane keeping system, rear backup camera and auto high-beam lighting. Honestly, if you crash this car with all of these system on, it’s on you. The system can be optionally fitted with adaptive cruise control with stop and go, voice-activated navigation and SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link. Another technology highlight is the SYNC3 with 8-inch infotainment, and standard embedded 4G LTE modem providing Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices. The last two are standard on the SE trim, mind you.
But connectivity and driving aids are not the only cool things about 2019 Ford Fusion. The handsome sedan is also one of the most efficient in its class. You have the 1.5-liter EcoBoost and a 325-hp V6 engine choices, and the Energi variant featuring plug-in hybrid system with an EPA-estimated electric-only range of up to 25 miles. Styling-wise, the car features new front and rear styling including a new grille featuring a five-bar design finished in chrome on S, SE and SEL models and new chrome mesh on Titanium. Below you will find the details specs of each of the available trim levels.
