Ford Fusion Performance and Engine Power
There are four engines available in the Fusion, so you have plenty to choose from. The base engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, producing 175-horsepower. This engine is perfect for daily driving around town and for errands, but there is a way boost performance if you want more power.
The two optional EcoBoost® engines include a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder and 2.0 liter 4-cylinder. The latter produces 245 horses which is great for pass-and-merge highway driving. If performance is of the utmost importance to you, the Ford Fusion Sport offers a twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing a pavement-rattling 325-horsepower. Few other vehicles in its class can match that kind of power.
While the gas engine is standard, look to the lithium battery hybrid to maximize efficiency. You can also try the plug-in hybrid, which has an EPA-estimated total driving range of 610 miles. The gas engine will only turn on as needed.
Interior Comfort and Cargo Space
The interior of the Fusion is comfortable, with available 10-way front-passenger seats and available leather wrapped steering wheel for that extra touch of class. You’ll find plenty of interior space as well. Front legroom checks in at 44.3 in., enough room to stretch out on longer drives with few stops. And the rear is comfortable too, with those in the back getting 38.3 in. of legroom.
The Ford Fusion also features one of the larger trunks in this class. With 16 cubic feet of trunk space, there’s enough room for about a dozen grocery bags or multiple suitcases. The trunk also has a wide opening, making it easier to fit large, bulky items. The 60/40 split-folding rear seat allows you to haul longer items while keeping some space for those seated in the back.
Ford Fusion Technology
The base edition of the Fusion features the SYNC® infotainment system with voice controls, the ability to make phone calls, play your favorite songs and more. All information is displayed on a 4.2-inch center display.
You can upgrade to the SYNC® 3 system, which lets you keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road while responding to spoken requests. With the SYNC® 3 system, you can enjoy Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability allowing you to access music, use maps for guided navigation and read text messages. As and added bonus, you get a larger, easy-to-see 8-inch touchscreen.
