Ford’s Fusion plug-in midsize sedan receives a facelift for 2017, which is good timing considering the arrival of rivaling models from Kia and Hyundai (see previous two vehicles). The hybrid employs a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gas engine and a 118-horse electric motor, which draws power from a 7.6 kWh lithium-ion battery. Combined power pencils out to a total of 188 horses. A new Platinum trim level adds premium features at a premium price point.
