What will change? Probably not a whole lot. Fusion debuted in its current form for the 2013 model year. Ford then added a new engine and a plug-in gas/electric hybrid model dubbed Energi for 2014. Expect this midsize sedan to largely stand pat pending a freshening, which likely will happen for the 2016 model year.
Why wait for the 2015 Ford Fusion: To see if the 2015 Fusion is among recipients of the updated MyFord Touch infotainment system. Ford’s overhauling the controversial feature it to better blend its touchscreen control interface with traditional buttons and switches. Every vehicle with the system will eventually get an updated version; Fusion’s time could come as part of the model-year 2016 freshening.
Why buy a 2014 Ford Fusion: Because it’s hard to say what a freshened Fusion might look like and you’re smitten with the current model’s swoopy styling. A 2014 Fusion would also be worth considering if you’re fine with MyFord Touch in its current form. If you’re looking to go green, you can be among the first to own the Fusion Energi.
