This feature monitors the road for any change in conditions, and sends power as needed in inclement weather, like rain and snow.

Safety and Technology

The 2019 Fusion features a driver alert monitor that alerts the driver and suggests a driving break if it detects the driver is not paying their full attention to the road.

The 2019 Ford Fusion also features Ford Co-Pilot360™, a group of driver-assist technologies that provide back-up while driving. These include:

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)— a system that applies the brakes to avoid slower vehicles ahead
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) — alerts driver of vehicles in their blind spot
  • Lane-Keeping System — helps driver stay in their lane
  • Rear view camera — allows driver to see what’s behind them while reversing
  • Automatic high-beam lighting

The 2019 Fusion acts as an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing up to 10 devices to connect from up to 50 feet outside of the vehicle thanks to FordPass Connect™ technology.

Other Features

The 2019 Fusion is equipped with Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS). EPAS automatically adjusts to high speeds or low speeds to deliver the precise feel and control you need. EPAS features drift control and active nibble control. EPAS uses both features to adjust to road conditions and reduce steering wheel vibrations.

The Fusion also features active noise cancellation, which blocks all outside noise, like wind and engine sounds, out. The Ford also features active grille shutters, which help reduce air flow when less engine cooling is needed, which helps further improve fuel economy.
