Meet the 2015 Ford Fusion, Ford’s popular mid-size sedan that has taken the car market by storm. Since 2006, Ford Fusion has served as the manufacturer’s platform to showcase technological breakthroughs and innovation, and was awarded 2010 Motor Trend Car of The Year. For 2015, Ford Fusion comes equipped with exciting features and engine combinations, including two EcoBoost models and a plug-in Hybrid. Read below to learn more about Ford Fusion’s cutting edge technology.
2015 Ford Fusion Design
Since its full redesign in 2013, Ford Fusion joined the company’s global design language, which centers around a new bold, hexagonal front grille and a sleek new silhouette. The new grille helps improve the Fusion’s efficiency by acting as an active-shutter, which regulates the air intake and maintaining ideal operating temperature. The 2015 Fusion’s exterior is topped-off with the new projector laser-cut headlamps, which activate automatically when the ambient light decreases and can change modes as it becomes necessary.
The interior of the 2015 is all about the details. As part of the redesign, Ford is focusing on the experience and puts the driver’s needs front and center. The dashboard and main console now make MyFord Touch more prominent, and drivers can access their music collection and make calls with simple voice commands. Other features include updated leather upholstery with power seats and available ambient lighting.
Ford Fusion Engine Options
The 2015 Ford Fusion offers five different engine configurations for all kinds of budgets. The entry level is a 2.5 liter four-cylinder Duratec engine coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission, offering 175 hp at 6,000 rpm. Next are the two EcoBoost options, both with direct injection and a six-speed transmission. Ford Fusion’s small EcoBoost engine delivers 181 horsepower and up to 37 mpg, which is an incredible feat for a 1.5 liter engine, turbo-charged nonetheless. The top-of-the-line EcoBoost, a 2 liter turbo-charged aluminum block engine, produces 240 horsepower and has an optional AWD drivetrain. This latter option brings additional stability and fuel efficiency as well as a key differentiator amongst competitors, as the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry do not offer AWD configurations.
Ford Fusion Hybrid joins the lineup in 2015, offering two identical engines engines with a rechargeable battery option available only with the Fusion Energi model. Both hybrid models top out at 141 horsepower and use Ford’s unique Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT), which provides better fuel economy, more available power, and smoother gear shifting. The 2015 Fusion Hybrid has an EPA estimated rating of 42 mpg and it’s almost doubled by the Fusion Energi model, which offers 88 mpg thanks to its added rechargeable capabilities.
