More about the 2018 Ford Fusion Energi

The 2018 Ford Fusion Energi is one of the few cars that combines the fuel efficiency offered by a plug-in hybrid with the versatility and roominess of a midsize sedan. Like most Ford vehicles, the Fusion Energi is offered in several trims, but the number of available packages and stand-alone options is uncharacteristically short.

The 2018 Fusion Energi can be ordered in three trims: SE Luxury, Titanium and Platinum. The base SE Luxury is generously equipped, helping justify the Energi's starting price (high compared to the standard Fusion and Hybrid, but less than many competing plug-ins). Standard features include LED headlights, keyless entry and ignition, rear parking sensors, the Sync 3 infotainment system (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and leather upholstery. We think the SE Luxury offers so much value that it's our recommended trim.

If you want the maximum number of features, though, stepping up to the Titanium doesn't increase the price tag much and adds sport front seats, ambient interior lighting and a Sony audio system with HD radio. Both of these trims offer a suite of advanced driver aids that Ford calls the Driver Assist package. Others, such as adaptive cruise control and automated parking, are available as stand-alone options.

The range-topping Platinum includes everything above, plus upgraded leather and additional leather trim throughout the cabin. It's much more expensive than the Titanium, but the rich interior appointments make it feel like a luxury sedan that just happens to carry a Ford badge.

Provided you don't have a long-distance commute, the Energi's 21 miles of electric range may  keep you away from the gas pump for weeks at a time. This electrified future comes at a cost; as with other plug-ins, the Energi carries a higher price tag than its hybrid and gas-engine-only counterparts. Buyers are strongly advised to take the cost of electricity into account if cost savings are a primary consideration for choosing an Energi over its siblings. If you decide the 2018 Ford Fusion Energi is for you, use the unparalleled shopping tools provided by Edmunds to build and find the perfect car.
