Lincoln recently introduced the facelifted MKZ at the Los Angeles Auto Show, so it comes as little surprise that its Ford counterpart is also going under the knife.

Recently caught testing in Michigan, the facelifted Ford Fusion features a new front bumper with a revised lower intake and new fog lights.  The grille and headlights are heavily camouflaged so they will likely receive some minor updates as well.  Out back, there isn't much to report but it appears the taillights will have revised graphics as they're covered by blue tape.

An interior refreshing is also in the works and it could include a new steering wheel and the addition of a rotary shifter.  The model should also be equipped with the new SYNC 3 infotainment system that is faster, more intuitive, and easier to use than the current MyFord Touch system.  The model should also be compatible with the new SYNC Connect app that allows owners to remotely start the engine, lock/unlock the doors, and verify the fuel level.

Engine options will likely carryover but there could be an upgraded 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that produces 245 bhp (183 kW) and 275 lb-ft (374 Nm) of torque.
