2015 Ford Fusion gets Small Updates, Drops Manual

The 2015 Ford Fusion has been revealed with a few packaging changes. 

For the 2015 model year, customers will no longer be offered a manual transmission, or the car’s 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. That setup has been replaced by a near identical 1.5-liter four-cylinder that is hooked up to a six-speed automatic.

All Fusions will now come with a standard rearview camera along with configurable daytime running lights, while the steel wheels that used to come as standard on base S-trim models are now 16-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels. An updated power adjustable front seat has now been added to the SE and Titanium-trimmed model along with a new Terracotta package which adds door inserts, floor mats and 18-inch wheels all finished in the earthen color.

Finally, all-wheel drive is now available with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine on SE Appearance and SE Luxury Package models.
