The wife and I discovered years ago that you retain more resale and longer when you have a higher trim model, so we buy the top trim of whatever we buy now. The fusion was an SEL and my truck we traded for the focus was an FX4, well you get the idea. They gave me 17.5 trade for the fusion.
Another reason is we like having all the toys on our vehicles and I can afford it.
