This is quite possibly Ford's upcoming 2017MY Fusion facelift for the U.S. market.

The attached low-res photo has been cropped from an official Ford corporate document for a J.P. Morgan Auto Conference and shows a slightly different Fusion featuring a wider front grille that also appears to be sharpened up a bit. The headlights seem to sport revised graphics while on the lower corners of the bumper are angular blades which could incorporate daytime driving lights although we are not too sure about this.

Nothing has changed with the side profile of the 2017 Fusion and since this is the only photo available, we don't know what's going on at the back. However, expect a slightly different look for the taillights and a revised bumper, but nothing of great significance. As for the interior, most likely Ford will install its SYNC 3 infotainment system along with a rotary shifter and other minor upgrades.

It's not known at this point when Ford will unveil the mildly facelifted mid-size sedan, but a possible reveal could occur in January next year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
