four-cylinder engine, with a permanent-magnet AC synchronous motor
providing electric power to boost performance to 185 hp. An

around 62 mph, which is up 15 mph from 2012. Ford expects the Fusion
Hybrid to outperform both the Sonata and the Camry, getting close to 47
mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highway.

While the new 2013 Fusion lineup will feature new hybrid versions, it will again be offered in a conventional gas-powered model as well. Those that opt for the gas-powered Fusion will get their choice of three different engines: a 170-hp 2.5L four-cylinder paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, a 1.6L EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 179 hp with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, or a 2.0L EcoBoost four-cylinder that kicks out 237 hp and is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive will be available on the 2.0L Fusion models only. Ford’s engine stop-start system will be standard on, and exclusive to, the 1.6L models. This feature is expected to reduce emissions and fuel consumption for Bourbonnais drivers by up to 3.5%.
