The 2015 Ford Fusion is going to have a great array of engines available, including efficient and powerful gasoline engines, and a hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrain.
2.5L iVCT I-4
This engine will be standard on the S and SE trim levels of the Fusion. It will produce 175 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The 2.5L iVCT I-4 has been around for years, and is a proven, reliable, and economical option.
1.5L EcoBoost I-4
The 1.5L EcoBoost I-4 was introduced in the 2014 Fusion, and has quickly caught on as a great balance of power and efficiency. With a single turbocharger and direct fuel injection, the 1.5L EcoBoost delivers 181 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque with nearly half the displacement of traditional engines. Plus, Auto Start-Stop is available on the 1.5L EcoBoost, offering even higher fuel economy. The 1.5L EcoBoost is available on the 2015 Ford Fusion SE.
2.0L EcoBoost I-4
The 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 delivers a huge amount of power – 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque – while still sipping fuel. This engine is standard on the Titanium and available on the Fusion SE. If you want your Fusion equipped with All-Wheel-Drive, which is a really useful feature in the mountains (and not available on most other mid-size sedans), this engine is required.
2.0L Atkinson-Cycle I-4 (Hybrid & Plug-in Hybrid)
This engine is only available on the Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi Plug-in hybrid. Obviously, there are some differences between the powertrain of the Hybrid and the Plug-in Hybrid, but they both use a version of the 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle I-4 paired with a continuously variable transmission. Both engines deliver 188-net system horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque, but the Fusion Energi also delivers 195 total system horsepower in charge depletion mode (Basically, the giant battery pack adds a bit of oomph to the horsepower numbers).
There you have it – the powertrain lineup for the 2015 Ford Fusion. Like in the 2013 and 2014 model years, this generation of the Fusion has proven to be an exciting and versatile vehicle, and it really has something to offer just about everyone.
