The 2014 Ford Fusion


Last week we had the opportunity to test drive the 2014 Ford Fusion for a week. And let me tell you, it's all new from what I remember. When this sporty hot rod pulled up in my driveway, I couldn't believe it! My first car was a 2007 Ford Fusion so I honestly hadn't seen the Fusion line since then. And now they look like fast paced muscle cars!


I loved the grill in the front of it too! I felt so stylish driving it; especially since it was red. Did you know that the rear inflatable seatbelts now available in 2014 Fusions make this the only car in the popular midsize segment to offer rear inflatable seatbelts? I think this is a great thing to have especially if you have kids!


The Fusion was very comfortable to drive in and I fell in love with a lot of the features it had including the blind spot warning. Have you ever been parked between two cars and you just can't seem to see when you're backing out? The blind spot warning system even helps you with that too! And active park assist will literally parallel park your car without you! The car will use sensors to steer the wheel; all you need to do is use the brake and gas! And for someone who can't parallel park to save their soul, this is a must have in the city!


The lane keeping system is also another amazing feature that I was able to witness. Using a small camera on the outside of the rear view mirror, it looks down on the road and makes sure you're in your lane. It will also alert the driver if it senses drowsiness or erratic behavior. Like for instance, I was in the Chick-Fil-A parking lot and got a little too close to the car in front of me. Of course I was just in line, but the car actually flashed bright red lights above the steering wheel and that definitely got my attention!


So my overall thoughts on the 2014 Ford Fusion? One of the safest cars I have ever driven, hands down. Would I buy it? Yes, in a heartbeat. As a previous owner of a Fusion, a Focus, and a Windstar, I am a Ford person and will always be because they are safe and reliable cars.

First, the color is pretty awesome on this one. I like the lane staying feature, that would be a great safety feature. What on earth are inflatable seat belts?

Masshole Mommy said...

What a sleek looking car!! My husband has a Ford and we've been VERY happy with it. I am due for a new car soon, so I may need to take one of these for a test drive.

Lucky you getting to use the Ford Fusion for a week. I would like it just because it is a red sporty hot rod!!! Not to mention it is one of the safest cars you have driven.

That is one sweet ride and all the safety features just makes it hotter!

Ellen said...

It's definitely very stylish!

Cute car. I like the color. With my crew, I am stuck with a van for now. Maybe someday.

MyLittleMe said...

That is a beautiful car. I love the color.

I love the style and color! I like Fords and am considering buying one.

What a nice car. I wish my family could fit in something like that, but it would be great for my hubby.

Heather Lawrence said...

What a sporty little car!
If I didn't have to drag around the entire world with me I would totally drive one.
We test drove an earlier model and loved it but with all the car seats it just wasn't practical.

Love the color love the look. Where can I get mine?

That's a good looking car! I'll be in the market for something new within the year, so I may have to add this to my list of cars to test drive.

Shauna Torres said...

Wow, very cute car. Love the color and think this would be a great car for a smaller family or young person... Thanks so much for all the information

We have been looking at the Fusion for a couple of years now as our next car. The new features, especially the inflatable seat bels, really do make the decision a lot easier.

Patty Woodland said...

I LOVE the color. The hubby is looking at a Ford for our next car as soon as we save the $$$. My last car was a Mustang that I just adored.

Gotta love all those safety features!

Sierra Lorenzo said...

What a gorgeous car! Looks very sleak, you'll be inlove with it once the week is up for sure.

I have been in love with the Fusion since the first model came out around when I graduated high school. I dated a guy in college that drove one, and it was affordable luxury all the way. Not sure I like the more sporty look of this years model, but I bet it's a comfy ride!

Monica Marino said...

This looks soooo nice. We are contemplating a move to the burbs and I will need a car! Stopping by your site happened at a good time!

Jaredamy said...

I currently own the Ford Focus, and love it, but this looks like a great upgrade. I actually need to start looking at vans.

Pam Halligan said...

I like the 2014 Ford Fusion. It looks classy, gets great gas mileage, and doesn't cost a fortune.

Pam said...

One of my favorite features on a car is the remote start button. I love those! I like good gas mileage too. The design on this car is pretty sleek too. Looks like a great all around vehicle to have!

I can't parallel park either so this would be the perfect car for me if I was in the market for a new vehicle. Its too small for my family though. We need big vehicles or a vehicle that can seat 6 comfortably. Love the red color as well and all the awesome features.

Cynthia Landrie said...

Wowie! What a great looking car! I bet you were so excited to drive it. I know I would be. I don't think I could ever go back to my car again!

Laurie said...

I love my Ford Expedition....but if I ever get a smaller vehicle, this Fusion looks pretty sweet!!

That Bald Chick said...

I can't parallel park, either. I get out and let my husband do it. LOL. Looks like a great car!

Bonjour Bella said...

I bought a 2013 ford focus... fords are great!

Ford has really stepped it up, I've noticed! I'm in the market for an SUV - perhaps I need to check out the Explorer! But this car sure is beautiful!

latanya t said...

This car looks like a lot of fun and I like the placement of the door locks on the side panel. Nice car!

Julie said...

Love the color. My friend has a Fusion and really likes it.Pretty good on gas

It's so pretty! I would love one of these. The technology is also amazing, how it can even alert you if you get too close to another car or if you are drowsy, wow!

Jeff Taylor said...

What a great looking car! Thanks for this deatiled review. I am looking for a vehicle and will keep this in mind.
