Buying economical coverage for a Ford Fusion is fairly easy, but it is dependent upon many factors such as how old the vehicle is, the likelihood of vehicle theft, and your driving record. Texas drivers pay on average $1,628 a year for Fusion insurance, but that is a valuation using a 30-year-old single male driver with full physical damage coverage and $100 deductibles.
There's a high likelihood you're not a 30-year-old male, married instead of single, and maybe you want higher deductibles. This example demonstrates why the only way to find cheap insurance prices for your Ford is to do a thorough rate comparison.
The specific model of Fusion has an effect on the coverage cost, so the rate you will pay to insure a Fusion S 4-Dr Sedan will be $308 cheaper than the cost to insure the higher-end Fusion Sport AWD 4-Dr Sedan trim level, as shown below.

A period of higher than normal claims may cause higher priced premiums, while better underwriting can cause lower-cost Fusion insurance rates.
