EPA estimates for the 2013 Ford Fusion were recently released, and they have confirmed that the 2013 Fusion is the most fuel-efficient midsized sedan in America.
“The new Fusion is part of our plan to offer vehicles with the very best quality, fuel efficiency, safety, smart design and value,” says Alan Mulally, Ford president and CEO. “We are absolutely committed to class-leading fuel efficiency as a reason to buy Ford vehicles, with customers able to choose the fuel-efficient powertrain that best fits their lifestyle.”
The all-new Fusion has three engine options available. The standard 2.5L Duratec I-4 engine generates 170 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of torque. It also has an EPA-estimated 22 city/ 33 highway miles per gallon. The two new available EcoBoost engines strive to lower carbon emissions without compromising power and efficiency. The 1.6L option offers great fuel efficiency with an EPA-estimated 26 city/37 highway miles per gallon. The 2.0L EcoBoost engine gives drivers more power with 237 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque.
“Ford is bringing power of choice to midsize sedan buyers,” says Mark Fields, president of The Americas. “More than 2 million customers this year will purchase midsize cars. Our new Fusion delivers the fuel savings people truly want and value, with technologies that cost two to three times the price on some German sedans.”
