Most people know that these days, we carry around a lot of devices. In fact, the Pew Research Center found that about one in three Americans owns the trifecta of a smartphone, a tablet, and a computer. With all these devices carrying our lives in their memories, the Ford company wanted to make sure that drivers wouldn’t have to worry about finding space in their car to accommodate them. So when the time came to redesign the interior of the Ford Fusion for the 2017 version, the automakers worked hard to ensure that not only would the model have better ergonomics and a more open feel, but space for everyone’s devices as well.
The 2017 Ford Fusion features a remarkable 59 percent storage increase over previous versions, as well as improved ergonomics. One of the ways this storage increase was achieved was the new gearshift dial, which is sleeker and lower-profile than before and helps give the cabin and console an open feel. The console also features a “media bin” under the eight-inch touchscreen, which includes a lighted USB port and a narrow storage slot the perfect size for a smartphone. In addition to more space, an airy feel, and a less crowded console, the 2017 Ford Fusion also boasts an improved footrest pedal design, which is more comfortable for drivers, and a narrower A-pillar that gives drivers better forward visibility.
Here at our San Diego, CA Ford dealership, we know our devices are important, and we’re thrilled that Ford automakers have found ways to include these essential pieces of our lives in the newest version of a popular model.
