The all-new crossover-like station wagon, the 2024 Ford Fusion Active, will reportedly arrive next year, featuring a very attractive design. Although there aren’t a lot of details about Ford’s newcomer, we’re expecting it to target the Subaru Outback. From the information that we got, the new model will come standard with all-wheel drive, featuring plastic body cladding and a raised ride height.
There are also rumors that a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid powertrain will be offered alongside the gasoline variant. Fortunately, we have some renderings of the upcoming Fusion Active and it looks great wearing the latest Ford design language. Here’s what we know so far about the Fusion Active.
2024 Ford Fusion Active Design
From the first spy shots and renderings, the new 2024 Ford Fusion Active looks very modern. It features the same design language we saw on the latest Ford Focus. We like it most for its front fascia, which dominates thanks to its black grille and really eye-catchy headlights.
A sloping hood is also present, as are the stylish wheels. We also noticed a big fender flare painted in black. Unfortunately, we don’t have a clear look from behind because the body of the spotted model is heavily camouflaged. Overall, we’re expecting to see a tail light that stretches across the tailgate.
Spacious and Modern Interior
On the inside, the 2024 Ford Fusion Active will likely share many design cues with the Mustang Mach-E crossover and the mid-size Explorer SUV. So, you should count on a very spacious cabin that offers enough room for up to five passengers. Considering that this model will compete with the Subaru Outback, it must provide a comfortable back seat and generous cargo space.
Also, we can expect a fully digital gauge cluster, a large vertically oriented center screen, and the latest version of Ford’s Sync infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard, while built-in navigation and a Wi-Fi hotspot will likely be on the optional list.
2024 Ford Fusion Active Engine Options
Unfortunately, at the moment, we don’t have any official details about the engine and transmission options of the 2024 Ford Fusion Active. According to some speculation, the new model will include standard all-wheel drive and probably hybrid and plug-in-hybrid powertrains as well. Interestingly, these engines are also available in the compact Escape crossover as well.
That means we can expect a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with two electric motors. The Fusion Active will probably inherit Escape’s gas-only model that has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 250 hp. It is worth mentioning that this model uses an eight-speed automatic transmission.
2024 Ford Fusion Active Price, Release Date
Since Blue Oval didn’t reveal any information regarding price and release date, the only way for us is to rely on speculation. So, from the information that’s available, the new 2024 Ford Fusion Active could start somewhere in the mid $35,000 range for the base model.
Although we don’t have any idea what trim levels will be available, some rumors indicate that it’ll align with other Ford models. Sales of the new Ford Fusion Active could start next year before summertime.
