The powerful and agile Fusion V6 Sport

V6 Sport

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.
*Horsepower and torque ratings achieved with 93-octane fuel.
1.5L EcoBoost engine

EcoBoost® Engines

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.

Ride and Handling

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 All-Wheel Drive

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.
*When equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost engine and 18-inch wheels.
Available Auto Start-Stop Technology

Auto Start-Stop

You can help reduce vehicle emissions with available Auto Start-Stop Technology. When the vehicle comes to a stop in city driving, the engine is automatically shut off. The air conditioning and radio stay on, keeping you comfortable. The engine seamlessly restarts when your foot leaves the brake pedal. Standard on the 1.5L EcoBoost® engine.*
*If stop is longer than three seconds, driver must tap accelerator pedal or push resume button to start the vehicle moving again.
Electric Power-Assisted Steering

Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS)

Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to deliver the precise feel and control you need at higher speeds, as well as the assistance slower speeds require. EPAS features drift control and active nibble control. Drift control detects road conditions – such as a crowned road surface or crosswinds – and adjusts the EPAS to compensate. Active nibble control uses the EPAS motor to reduce unwanted vibrations in the steering wheel. The result — comfortable driving and responsive steering.
