Introducing Ford Co-Pilot360™
If you’re looking for a slew of driver-assist technologies, you got it in the form of the all-new Ford Co-Pilot360. This feature suite acts as a second set of eyes when driving around town or on highways like the NJ Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, I-78, I-287 and Route 46. There are 2 levels of this offering: Co-Pilot360 Protect and Co-Pilot360 Assist.
Co-Pilot360 Protect is equipped in every 2019 Ford Fusion coming to our Union County NJ dealership location. This includes the following:
- Automatic emergency braking with pre-collision assist & pedestrian detection
- Lane keeping system
- Blind spot information system
- Rear backup camera
- Automatic high-beams
- Rain-sensing windshield wipers
If you’d like, you can upgrade to Co-Pilot360 Assist to get adaptive cruise control with stop & go that automatically accelerates and brakes to keep up with traffic and a voice-activated navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic & Travel Link services for real-time driving conditions.
What Else Can You Get in the 2019 Ford Fusion?
The 2019 Ford Fusion is offered in 6 models that bring unique aspects to the table: the S, SE (gasoline & hybrid), the returning SEL (gasoline & hybrid), Titanium (gasoline & hybrid), Energi Titanium and V6 Sport. As we told you already, the Fusion S comes with Ford Co-Pilot360.
Upgrading to the Fusion SE gets you dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control, SYNC Connect with a Wi-Fi hotspot giving you 4G LTE for up to 10 devices and SYNC 3 with an 8” LCD touchscreen display.

The gasoline-only models are powered by an efficient 1.5L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine coming standard. Also offered are the 2.0L Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder hybrid engine with CVT for smooth operation, the Fusion Energi’s 9.0-kilowatt-hour air-cooled lithium-ion battery that goes up to 25 miles on electric-only driving (almost 20% greater than the current model) and the Fusion V6 Sport that delivers 325 hp & 380 lb/ft of torque while using AWD.
