How Safe is the 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport?
There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport. And with good reason, too, as it’s a performance sedan unlike any other found on the road today – or any day, for that matter. Everyone knows about the 2017 Fusion V6 Sport’s impressive powertrain, but without supremely agile handling abilities, all the power in the world means nothing. And with sleek handling comes added safety, which is also just as important as power. So let’s take a closer look at the handling and safety features found within the 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport.

2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport Handling Features
The handling features of the 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport all start with its heralded Sport Mode. Pushing the Sport Mode button sets the car up for maximum performance and sets you up for the ride of your life. That’s because pushing the Sport Mode button means the steering wheel paddle shifters are fully enabled to control the transmission, shift points are aggressively programmed, throttle response is faster, steering stiffens, continuously controlled damping enters a more aggressive profile and active noise control is tuned for a more engaging and entertaining in-cabin engine note.
2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport Safety Features
When you want a sporty ride like the one the 2017 Fusion V6 Sport offers, you need some sporty safety features. And the new Ford Fusion V6 Sport has everything you need to keep you safe and comfortable during your ride. These safety features include antiroll bars, spring rates, wider tires, continuously controlled damping for real-time suspension tuning and even a pothole detection system. This last one is a doozy, as it detects the edge of a pothole and, within milliseconds, changes the damping rates to reduce the severity of the impact.
