Ford Fusion - Engine Options & AWD

The Ford Fusion offers more powertrain options than many competing sedans, including its coveted AWD. The base engine on the Ford Fusion is a 2.5l four-cylinder at 173 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes on the base S trim level, which is the only trim that does not have access to AWD.

Moving up to the Fusion SE, Central Iowa drivers get a 1.5l turbo which produces 181 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. You can also option the SE with AWD, which also upgrades the engine to a 2.0l turbo that makes 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. This is a very noticeable boost in power, and Marshalltown drivers who enjoy a sporty driving experience will love the combination of the engine and AWD.

The SEL's engine and drivetrain options are the same as on the SE, while the Titanium comes standard with the 2.0l turbo. Overall, the Ford Fusion's engine options should be plenty to satisfy Central Iowans shopping for a new sedan, and are further augmented by the Ford Fusion Hybrid, which uses a 2.0l engine and electric motor to produce 188 horsepower. However, the Ford Fusion Hybrid is only available with FWD.

Ford Fusion Features

Aside from its engaging driving experience, the Ford Fusion offers an impressive set of features and an attractive cabin. Ford's Co-Pilot360 Assist system adds dual-zone automatic climate control, 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, Sync 3 voice controls, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, adaptive cruise control, and an additional USB port. The Ford Fusion can also be optioned with leather interior, a premium sound system, and other popular features.

At the top of the range, the Ford Fusion Titanium gets a sunroof, heated & ventilated leather sport seats, heated mirrors, 12-speaker Sony sound system, and more. So whether you're shopping for the base S trim, which still comes comparably well-equipped, or the luxurious and engaging Fusion Titanium, you can find the feature set you're looking for. And all Ford Fusion models offer a large, comfortable interior with great sound isolation, comfortable seats, and a large trunk.
