2020 Ford Fusion sedan receives farewell body colorsApril 4, 2020
The American mid-size Ford Fusion sedan, which is known under our name Mondeo, gets three new body shades with which it will be offered in its last year of production. These colors are Rapid Red Metallic, Iconic Silver, and Alto Blue.
Many were shocked, although not surprised, when Ford announced the cessation of further production of the Fusion model, which we know under the name Mondeo. Sales of this car peaked in 2014 and 2015, when a total of 600,000 units were sold. However, in 2019, model sales were only 166,045 units, as Ford discontinued the sedan’s advertising company at the end of 2018. We know that 2020 will be the last year for the mid-size Fusion, and it seems Ford has decided to introduce some new additions to it. Although it is not so interesting – three new body colors.
Three new colors – Rapid Red Metallic, Iconic Silver, and Alto Blue, with the latter two costing an additional 395 dollars. Iconic Silver is available at no extra charge.
The last time Ford made any updates to the Fusion during the 2019 model year. The updates were modest – a new grille, front LED high beam headlights, LED taillights and a new trunk lid panel. Ford also added the Co-Pilot360 safety kit, which includes assistance with lane management, automatic emergency braking, dead zone monitoring, and more.
Fusion 2020 is available in S, SE, SEL, and Titanium trim levels. Each version, with the exception of the base S, is available with a hybrid powerplant. Ford’s plans to replace Fusion with anything are confusing. We know that the automaker focuses on the production of crossovers, SUVs and trucks. However, it was rumored that Ford would retain the Fusion trademark for rival Japanese crossover Subaru Outback. There are also reports of the emergence in late 2021 of the new Mondeo, the European brother of Fusion, which may be exactly the same vehicle.
