2013 Ford Fusion EPA Rated up to 37 MPG

2013 Ford Fusion EPA Rated up to 37 MPG

Last week the EPA released fuel economy numbers for the Ford Fusion Hybrid, and today the rest of the standard gasoline lineup for the Fusion has been rated, getting up to a 37 mpg highway rating. 

Three engine options will be available when the Ford Fusion hits dealers this fall, a Duratec 2.5-liter, a 1.6-liter EcoBoost and 2.0-liter EcoBoost. The Duratec will be the standard motor offering, and gets an EPA rating of 22 mpg city, 34 mpg highway, all while making 170 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.

If you choose to upgrade, you can have the 1.6-liter turbocharged powerplant that makes 178 hp and 184 lb-ft or torque, and manages a 25/37 mpg with a manual transmission, and 23/36 mpg with an automatic.

The last offering, meant to be the sportiest of the bunch, is a 2.0-liter Ecoboost that produces 237 hp and 250 lb-ft, and gets an EPA rating of 22/33 mpg with FWD, and 22/31 mpg when equipped with AWD.

Rounding out the range of engine options, the Fusion Hybrid is rated at 47/47 mpg. These fuel economy numbers put the Fusion first in the hybrid segment but second to the Nissan Altima at 27/37 mpg, making it a very appealing choice in the midsize-sedan segment.
