The dual-LCD SmartGauge® with EcoGuide provides real-time information to help you enhance the efficiency of your Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid. The MyView screen lets you customize screens to your liking. Configurable screens such as Brake Coach help you maximize your vehicle's efficiency. Left-side display screens include Engage and Empower modes.In Engage, you'll see separate gauges for engine power and lithium-ion battery power and "EV" displayed when the vehicle is operating on battery power only. In Empower, which includes all the information in Engage, you'll also see how close you are to the gasoline engine on/off threshold and the amount of power being requested based on how far you're depressing the accelerator pedal. Five-way steering wheel-mounted controls make it all easy. Plus, as your driving efficiency increases, the right-side cluster display grows leaves and vines.
When you apply the brakes in a conventional vehicle, kinetic energy is lost due to friction. During braking in the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid, however, regenerative braking recovers more than 94 percent of this energy and sends it back to the battery to be stored for later use.
17-inch premium painted Luster Nickel wheels are optional on S gas, standard on SE gas, Hybrid S and SE and all Fusion Energi models.
The thoughtfully designed interior of the 2017 Fusion keeps the driver top of mind. For starters, there's a new, surprisingly spacious, open cabin, a number of available driver-assist features and empowering in-car connectivity like voice-activated SYNC® 3 and SYNC® Connect. Then there's the helpful available Navigation System that includes SiriusXM® Traffic and SiriusXM® Travel Link, providing a wealth of travel information at your command.
The Lane-Keeping System, which includes both the lane-keeping alert and the lanekeeping aid can help. A camera mounted behind the windshield scans road lane markings to determine vehicle position and detect a lane departure. The system can operate during the day or night. Lane-keeping alert warns you through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic a rumble strip, should the system detect an unintentional lane departure. Lane-keeping aid actively applies steering torque, which alerts you to direct your vehicle back into the target lane should the system detect an unintended lane departure.
SiriusXM® lets you enjoy commercial-free music, plus sports, news, entertainment and every premium channel with your 6-month all-access trial subscription. The available voice-activated Navigation System also includes a 5-year subscription to SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link services. These features provide detailed traffic information on accidents, construction and road closures, plus local and national weather forecasts, fuel prices and more
