About Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion Energi is a plug-in hybrid variant of the Ford Fusion. It is also available in a next-generation hybrid version. The Ford Fusion was the first production sedan to include all three options. In October 2012, sales of the gasoline-powered and hybrid versions began in the United States. Sales as the Ford Mondeo are planned to commence in Europe and Asia in 2013. Fusion Energi deliveries began in the United States in February 2013. In August 2014, sales of the Mondeo lineup, including the hybrid variant, commenced in Germany.

The nickel-metal hydride batteries used in the hybrid’s first generation were replaced by lithium-ion batteries in the Fusion Hybrid’s second generation.

The 2013 model year is more fuel efficient than its predecessor, with an EPA rating of 47 mpgUS (5.0 L/100 km; 56 mpgimp) for combined/city/highway cycles and the same rating for combined/city/highway cycles. This is also the rating obtained by Ford for the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid, as both hybrids share the same engine and transmission. With these ratings, the 2013 Fusion Hybrid outperformed the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid LE by 4 mpgUS (0,5 L/100 km; 4.8 mpgimp) city and 8 mpgUS (1 L/100 km; 9.6 mpgimp) highway, making it the most efficient midsize hybrid sedan in the United States as of September 2012. [64] The Duratec 2.5 and EcoBoost 1.5, 1.6, and 2.0 engines are manufactured in Chihuahua, Mexico, Craiova, Romania, Bridgend, Wales, and Valencia, Spain, respectively. The 6F and HF35 automatic gearboxes are sourced from Ford’s Van Dyke Transmission Plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan, while the B6 manual transmission is manufactured at GETRAG FORD Transmissions GmbH in Halewood, United Kingdom.

For the 2017 model year, Ford revamped the Fusion. On January 11, 2016, the facelifted version was unveiled at the 2016 North American International Auto Show.

All Fusions received new packages, new front and rear end styling, a new rotary-controlled automatic transmission, and two new gasoline-powered Fusion trim levels: the high-performance Sport, the first time a V6 engine has been installed in a second-generation Fusion, and the Platinum, which adds more luxury features to the previously top-of-the-line Titanium trim level (the Platinum is also available for both the Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi models). Ford’s new SYNC 3 infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, which replaces the MyFord Touch infotainment system introduced on the 2016 Fusion, is also new for 2017.

Pricing ranges from $22,120 for a base gas-powered Fusion S model with the 2.5 L Duratec I4 engine to $39,120 for the Fusion Energi Platinum model with an Atkinson Cycle 2.0 L I4 engine and an electric motor with EV Mode.
