2025 Ford Fusion Active: The Ultimate Crossover Wagon – Ford Fusion is returning, but not as a car. Instead, Ford is turning the Fusion into a crossover wagon that will go up against cars like the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack and the Subaru Outback. The 2025 Ford Fusion Active will have the best features of both a wagon and a crossover. It will have a wagon’s space, flexibility, and the crossover’s toughness and abilities. So far, this is what we know about this fantastic new model.
What’s Different in 2025?
The all-new Ford Fusion Active will replace the Fusion car and the Edge SUV when they go out of production in 2025. It will be built on the same platform as the Ford Escape, but the wheels will be farther apart, and the ground will be higher. The Fusion Active will also have a unique look, making it stand out from other Ford models. It will have a smooth top, thin headlights, and a textured grille.
A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors will make up the Fusion Active’s drivetrain choices. There would also be a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid system. The plug-in hybrid version will have an electric range of about 30 miles, and the hybrid version will get around 40 miles per gallon on the highway. Ford might also make a gas-only version with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.
The Fusion Active will have a standard all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic engine. It will also have different driving modes that change the suspension, steering, and stability control settings based on the terrain. The Fusion Active will also have skid plates, plastic body covering, and roof rails to make it more appealing for use off-road.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The Fusion Active will look great from the outside, with a design that combines style and excitement. A prominent triangular grille with a honeycomb design will sit in front of the car, with thin LED headlights and fog lights on either side. The wagon will look sporty because the top will slope down from the side. The back will have circular taillights and a dual exhaust system.
The Fusion Active’s cabin will be roomy and comfy, with enough space for five people and much stuff. A 12-inch tablet infotainment system that works with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa will be one example of the high-tech and high-quality features inside the car. The Fusion Active will also have a luxury music system, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a digital cluster of instruments.
Many safety and driver-help features will also be built into the Fusion Active. These include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot tracking, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, and parking sensors. Ford’s Co-Pilot360 Assist+ system may also be available in the Fusion Active. This system will have active park assist, evasive driving assist, and traffic sign reading.
The Fusion Active will come with three different powertrains: a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid, and a gas-only version. The hybrid and plug-in models will have a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with two electric motors for 200 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque. The plug-in hybrid version will have an electric range of about 30 miles, and the hybrid version will get around 40 miles per gallon on the highway.
The gas-only choice will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. A gearbox with eight speeds and all-wheel drive will be paired with this engine. The gas-only version is expected to get 25 mpg on the highway.
The Fusion Active will also have different drive modes that will change the suspension, steering, and stability control settings based on the terrain. The drive modes will be standard, Eco, Sport, Slippery, Deep Snow/Sand, Trail, and Tow/Haul.
Release Date and Price
The 2025 Ford Fusion Active will likely come out in late 2024 or early 2025, with a 2025 model year. The previous Fusion car was made at Ford’s Hermosillo plant in Mexico, where this one will be made. People in North America and Europe may call the Fusion Active the Mondeo Active when they buy it.
The Fusion Active’s price hasn’t been released yet, but it should start around $30,000. That’s the same as the Subaru Outback and the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid models and the better trim levels with more features and choices will cost more.
