2018 Ford Fusion

Ford Fusion

Engine - This year, the Ford Fusion keeps the same engine as the 2017 model and remains with the five trim options. You will see a 2.5L four-cylinder engine getting up to 175 horsepower. One of the trims can be paired with a turbo engine getting up to 181 horsepower. Even with possible poor acceleration, it’s still a reliable car great for commuting.

Fuel – You will get 23 City and 34 Hwy MPG for the regular Ford Fusion models. The only downfall is if you decide to focus on the slightly better gas mileage, you lose safety features you would have gotten in the Mazda6. Read below to find out more.

Safety – Rear monitor, lane departure warning system, rearview camera, and more safety features are included. Many of the safety features that are standard on the Mazda6 are optional for the Fusion. This means the MSRP goes up depending on how many features are chosen.
