Here at Jim Peach Motors Inc, we usually recognize a good thing when we see one.

We say this because such was our reaction upon meeting the 2017 Ford Fusion, our esteemed American automaker's midsize sedan. In that moment we knew Ford had a hit on its hands.

Wondering what we're getting at? Then, check the clip below. Link up with AutoGuide.com Managing Editor Jodi Lai, as she takes the Fusion for a test run:

Arguably our favorite engine in the Fusion family, its mid-level turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is a standout selection.

Available on the SE trim and standard on the Titanium and Platinum, this turbo-four joins with a six-speed automatic transmission to generate a hearty 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, while an all-wheel system is optional.

We dig this engine's ability to put down the 0-to-60 mph dash, too, as AWD-equipped variants can get there in a scant 6.9 seconds.

If you'd like to learn more about this outstanding family sedan, or wish to get behind the wheel of one, we encourage you to drop by our Brewton, AL dealership. Our automotive experts are ready to answer your every question about the Fusion, or any other Ford model within the present portfolio.
