It’s been named a Top Safety Pick+ in its year, along with three different engine choices and multiple accessories available for integration. We at Team Ford Edmonton can’t recommend this car enough!
While the base model engine already gives you an impressive fuel economy, upgrading to either one of the 1.5L or 2.0L EcoBoost engines gives you even more fuel efficiency for your dollars. No matter what engine option you choose for your Fusion, you’re getting great fuel efficiency at 3 different levels—the only downside is choosing which one.

With the base 2.5L version, you get 178 horsepower with a fuel economy of 10L/100km in the city and 7L/100km in the highway. If you want even more performance and fuel efficiency, the 1.5L EcoBoost engine uses direct injection to increase those numbers up to 191 hp and 185 lb-ft torque, giving you a better fuel economy of 6.3L/100km on the highway and 9.4L/100km in the city.
