Did you know…

The 2017 Fusion features standard “return to Park” technology to help reduce the potential for roll-aways. This smart innovation helps drivers have extra peace of mind that their vehicle will select Park, as intended, even if they forget to turn the gearshift dial to “P” or accidentally leave the car in another gear when parking. Using the vehicle’s extensive network of sensors, the technology automatically shifts Fusion in Park when any of the following conditions occur:

  • The driver turns off the vehicle
  • Opens the driver’s door (first) and then unlatches their seat-belt (second) or vice versa.
