2018 Fusion Hybrid Media & Technology

While the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid delivers an efficient performance that not only saves on fuel, but reduces vehicle emissions, it also comes with fun features. The vehicle comes with the SYNC® system that's fitted in the dashboard. This screen and system allows the driver to access their media features through touch. Or, if you want to keep your hands on the wheel, you can also use voice commands.

  • The Ford Fusion Hybrid comes with a 9-speaker sound system, which has the speakers strategically placed to provide the perfect audio levels for each passenger.
  • The sedan features an AM/FM stereo and a CD player that can read and play MP3-formatted discs.
  • Drivers can upgrade to include the SYNC® 3 system and the 6-month trial subscription of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which adds more than 150 listening stations to the entertainment options.

Ford Fusion Hybrid Safety Features

The 2018 Fusion Hybrid comes with an anti-lock braking system that features several components to help add more control when driving over slippery road conditions. Both AdvanceTrac® and Brake Assist provide the necessary brake pressure to help drivers avoid a loss of traction or a collision. The vehicle features front airbags, front knee airbags, side impact airbags, and side curtain airbags.

  • The SOS-Post Crash Alert System activates after a collision by turning on the emergency flashers and unlocking the doors, so passengers can exit the vehicle easily.
  • The MyKey® system allows you to educate your teen driver about safe driving practices by letting you program a specific key. This programmed key will limit the audio levels in the car, and prevent the entertainment from playing until all passengers are buckled in.
