How Much Does a Ford Fusion Cost?

Ford Fusion Prices



ZIP:

The bottom line on the 2011 Ford Fusion is that it is one of the best midsize family sedans on the market. That's no small achievement when you consider that it is competing against annual heavyweights such as the Camry and Accord.

The Fusion remains largely unchanged from the 2010 redesign that asserted it as a well balanced vehicle that is fun and capable on the road, roomy and comfortable on the inside, and refined throughout. This year's model adds some nice standard upgrades such as the MyKey system (which allows parents to set speed and stereo volume limits for teen drivers) and a standard blind-spot side mirror, as well as available options such as a new luxury package and a six-speed automatic that you can shift like a manual. And Ford remains on the high-tech cutting edge with its available Sync system, which allows for voice-activated navigation, communications, and entertainment.

Ford Fusion MSRP

I4 S 2.5L Duratec Four-Cylinder 6-Speed Manual $19,695
I4 SE 2.5L Duratec Four-Cylinder 6-Speed Manual $21,375
V6 SE 3.0L Duratec FFV Six-Cylinder 6-Speed Manual $23, 865
I4 SEL 2.5L Four-Cylinder 6-Speed Automatic $24,805
Sport 3.5L Six-Cylinder 6-Speed Select Shift Automatic $26, 655
Hybrid 2.5L Four-Cylinder eCVT transmission $28,100


When it comes to powertrain options, the Fusion arguably offers the widest range of choices in a midsized sedan. The S, SE and SEL come standard with a 2.5 liter four-cylinder, 175 HP engine matched with a six-speed manual. Expect good performance from the four-cylinder. The SE and SEL can also be matched with a more performance-minded 3.0 liter, 240 HP V6 (only available with the six-speed automatic transmission). The Fusion Sport comes with the most powerful engine available for this model - a 3.5 liter, 263 HP V6. For those who want the added security of all-wheel drive the option is available on the Sport and V6 SEL.

Fuel economy for the four-cylinder Focus is commendable at 22 city and 31 highway miles per gallon (MPG). The 3.0 V6 is slightly less impressive at 20/28, but comes equipped with Flex Fuel capacity, allowing it to run on gasoline, E-85 (a blend of 15% gasoline and 85% ethanol), or any gas/E-85 combination. The more powerful 3.5 V6, not surprisingly, is the least fuel-efficient Fusion at 18/27, while the hybrid Fusion earns a stellar 41/36.

The Fusion comes equipped with standard safety features that earned it a five star safety rating for front passengers (four for the back), including antilock brakes, stability control, side curtain airbags, and front-seat side airbags.

Inside and out you'll find modest but attractive styling such as a 3-bar grille and soft-touch interior. The Fusion is slightly smaller than its competitors, which doesn't limit the interior space (plenty of room for two adults in the back) and provides a little extra agility on the road. The overall driving experience is rewarding with solid handling and a comfortable ride.

In recent years, Ford has made strong efforts to cut into the success of foreign competitors such as Honda, Toyota, and more recently, Hyundai. In the Fusion, comfort, refinement, performance, and technology come together in a nice overall package that will make car owners proud to drive American again.
