Sedan’s sales continue to drop year after year, as the population shifts more towards SUVs. Let’s face it, most of us would like more space in a vehicle, with more room for our stuff in the cargo area, and SUVs do this for us, often while matching sedans in gas mileage. The drop in sales continues, and recently Ford trimmed their entire lineup to focus only on SUVs and pickups. The only “car” they currently offer is the Mustang. This meant that in 2020 many Ford Fusion enthusiasts were dismayed to see their favorite sedan go quietly into the night. This sadness turned into optimism when Ford announced the return of the model name, the Fusion Active, which many believe will return in 2023. What is the new Ford vehicle? And when can we expect it? Well unfortunately we know very little about the return of Ford’s sedan, but we will go over what we do know.
What will the New Ford Fusion Active look like?
Various websites claim just exactly how the Ford Fusion Active will look and base this off of many different prototype vehicles that have been spotted in America and China. Quite a few Ford enthusiasts believe that the Fusion Active will be a redesigned Evos for an American market. Others believe that the Fusion Active will be similar to the American Ford Edge and that it will be filling in as the Edge’s replacement. What we do know is that Ford is markedly reticent to build any sedans, evident by the Mustang Mach-E’s design as a crossover. With this knowledge, we do know that Ford will not be constructing a sedan. Many have hypothesized that it will fill the niche that the Ford Edge is leaving, this sounds a little too good to be true though, as Ford is discontinuing the Edge in favor of their larger crossovers and SUVS. At most we can assume that the Fusion Active will have a similar body style to the Fusions we know and love, and should be built on a larger platform with more room and space.
When will the Ford Fusion be Released?
The assumption many are making is that the Ford Fusion Active will be released in 2023. Although we are getting awfully close to 2023 and Ford has not released any official notices or pictures of the upcoming Fusion Active. At this point, it seems more likely that the Fusion will be announced in 2023 and maybe go on sale in 2024.
The Fusion Active will be an interesting vehicle and should fill the gap between Ford’s larger SUVs and those who are looking for the convenience of a smaller daily drive. The Ford Fusion Active should be announced shortly and will go on sale most likely the year after it is announced. We look forward to the Ford Fusion Active, and will keep you updated as we get more news.
