2017 Ford Fusion Scooped With Less Camo Ahead Of Detroit Debut

It’s only a matter of weeks before Ford officially reveals the updated 2017 Fusion, known as the Mondeo in Europe and elsewhere, but here are some fresh shots of a lighter camo’d tester.

Frankly, the only reason why you’d notice this prototype on the road would be for the camouflage, as there don’t seem to be any significant changes on the body other than what could be a chrome strip between the tail lamps that also get new graphics, and a slightly revised front with a new lower grille and auxiliary lights. It also looks that Ford might have tweaked the upper grille and headlamps.

New colors and wheel designs should wrap the subtle exterior revisions.

For the inside, the minor facelift will bring a newer infotainment system with respective changes to the center console, and the usual incremental quality improvements together with fresh colors and trims.

The 2017 Fusion should continue with the same set of gasoline and hybrid powertrains, possibly refined, but we could see Ford adding an ST version to the range, as a couple of months ago, we spotted a prototype of the sedan with a quad-exhaust setup, bigger wheels and brakes, and what appeared to be an intercooler.

Ford plans to host the world premiere of the updated Fusion at next month’s Detroit Motor Show.
