Hey team, new member here, great forum.
I am currently looking at a 2017 Fusion Hybrid SE -- used --. Yes a used one already on the market.
I was looking at a new 2017; D plan eligible, plus end of year incentives, but alas Ford Credit wouldn't give me the 0% at 72 months, so I was going to give up, but then I found a used one (corporate vehicle return I believe).
We'll see how that turns out, but it's a 2017 SE with adaptive cruise control. Just the fact that it's an SE with with adaptive cruise control appears to make it one of the scarcest vehicles in the Ford line-up. You just don't see that many SE's with ACC -- probably because you have to add luxury and assist packages which almost make it to Titanium price territory.
However, looking at D plan pricing between (as close as one can get of course) SE and Titanium, if I recall correctly, the SE still comes out about $2k less. Obviously, you're losing some luxury and a few options and/or implementation -- no cooled seats available in the SE for example. Not sure if SE comes equipped with heated steering wheel either, but that's not critical for me here in north central Texas.
Any way, sorry to ramble. But a 2017 hybrid SE is in the works.
