More pictures of the 2013 Ford Fusion
Turns out the base engine is still the “old” 2.5 liter with 170hp.
I drove a Mazda6 and Mazda3 with this engine and never liked it as much as the previous 2.3 Liter version.
It is just not the smoothest around…
The 2 other, and much more modern, options will be a 1.6 Liter turbo with 179hp. And a larger 2.0 Liter turbo with 237hp.
No more V6 option.
Only the 1.6 Liter can be ordered with a 6 speed manual.
Ford expects the 1.6 L engine to get 37 MPG on the highway and 26 in the city. Which would be good numbers for a smaller car.
