Almost certainly, hopefully we'll hear something about it if they chose to give it a marketing name.

It's funny because in many ways the design changes remind me of the preliminary 2010 Fusion redesign that sported tall triangle-like inserts at the corners of the front bumper which were significantly scaled back in final production when Ford started forcing the trapezoidal details in their corporate fascias.




I agree with you, I think this is a step backwards. Such a small step though that I doubt many will even notice.

I need to see it in person but the back looks weirdly flat and boxy on the new one.

Re: 2019 Ford Fusion Refreshed

See Im actually digging the changes made to the front end. Hoping the 8-speed was added to the 1.5, 2.0, and 2.7 Ecoboosts. Assuming well see some changes to the 2019 MKZ as well, which isnt a bad thing.

I have to believe this would be a test/an indicator of the strength of Ford Motor Company’s commitment to its Lincoln luxury brand.

Surely—surely—Ford won’t allow such a suite of safety equipment to be made standard, to great fanfare, on Ford’s more plebeian models and not also include it on their luxury line (even if under a different name for marketing purposes).

Not a fan of the new fog lights. Not as sleek looking, but not a deal breaker either.

What I can't believe, however, is that they're still using that **** old school antenna! I'm pretty sure every competitor has a shark fin, and I've seen a bunch of Fusion owners upgrade to an aftermarket shark fin.

I have the old antenna, and it has the best reception I've ever had in a vehicle.

does this 360 copilot system has traffic sign recognition? Does Lincoln already have it?
