The Fusion V6 Sport has a powerful 2.7L turbocharged EcoBoost® engine that kicks out 325 hp with 380 lb.-ft of torque* and standard AWD. Fusion also features continuously controlled damping (CCD) that uses an advanced suite of sensors to constantly monitor the vehicle’s suspension motion, body movement, steering and braking to adjust the suspension damping in milliseconds to help keep the body of the vehicle quiet and smoothly on track. Fusion also has a pothole mitigation system within its standard CCD suspension, which can provide some protection against jarring impact and costly wheel and tire repairs.
The 2018 Fusion has three EcoBoost engines to choose from: the 1.5L with standard Auto Start-Stop Technology; the 2.0L; and, for the Fusion V6 Sport, the 2.7L V6. All combine three technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) – to enhance performance and efficiency. Each engine provides direct fuel injection, piston cooling jets for durability and paddle shifters.
Standard is a 6-speed automatic transmission that comes with available steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. Also standard is a European-inspired independent MacPherson strut-type suspension with a stabilizer bar to help reduce road noise, vibration and body roll when cornering. There’s also electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) with pull-drift compensation to help correct for road irregularities and to improve overall steering feel, especially when driving on crowned roads or in heavy crosswinds. Also, continuously controlled damping is a Ford exclusive on V6 Sport and delivers tight cornering and a smooth ride.
Intelligent AWD sensors balance torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction, typically before wheelslip can occur. AWD is available on SE, Titanium and Platinum* and standard on V6 Sport with the 2.7L EcoBoost® engine. Not available on the Fusion Hybrid and the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid.
From the available rear spoiler to the distinctive grille, Fusion was designed to be noticed. Plus, the comfort and style of the Fusion interior invites you to slip behind the available leather-wrapped steering wheel, dial the rotary gear shift into Drive – and follow your own road to freedom and discovery.
One of them is bound to be for you: The S Appearance Package features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 18-inch premium dark stainless wheels and a rear spoiler. The SE Appearance Package includes black cloth and vinyl bolster seats with Medium Stone stitching, halogen fog lamps with bright chrome-trim black bezel and 18-inch premium dark stainless wheels. The SE Luxury Package features the style and comfort of a 10-way power driver seat with three memory settings, leather seating surfaces with heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel to go along with its 1.5L EoBoost® engine and 6-speed auto transmission.
Enjoy the sun, the moon, the stars and the sky (not to mention a rush of fresh air) with the available power moonroof. For added convenience, a universal garage door opener comes with it.

A camera mounted behind the windshield scans road lane markings to determine vehicle position and detect a lane departure. The available system can operate day or night. Lane-Keeping alert warns you through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic driving over a rumble strip, should the system detect an unintentional lane departure. Lane-Keeping aid actively applies steering torque, which alerts you to direct your vehicle back into the target lane should the system detect an unintended lane departure.
Put the gear selector in Reverse and the rear view camera automatically transmits the image of what’s behind your vehicle to your screen when you’re slowly backing up. The rear view camera is standard on all models.
