2015 Ford Fusion Drops 1.6L EcoBoost Engine, Manual Transmission

A manual transmission is no longer available for the 2015 Ford Fusion. The Ford Fusion sedan’s available 1.6-liter EcoBoost I-4 and six-speed manual combo has been phased out for 2015. Last year, the 1.5-liter EcoBoost I-4 and six-speed automatic replaced the 1.6-liter EcoBoost and auto.

Other updates include a standard rearview camera and configurable daytime running lamps. A set of 10-spoke, 16-inch alloy wheels replaces steel wheels on the Fusion S. 2015 Ford Fusion SE models gain a standard six-way power passenger seat, while the 2015 Ford Fusion Titanium gains a standard 10-way power passenger seat. Four new exterior colors (Bronze Fire Tinted Clearcoat Metallic, Guard, Tectonic, and Magnetic) have been added.

All-wheel drive is now available on the 2015 Ford Fusion SE Appearance and Fusion SE Luxury packages when equipped with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine. A new Terracotta Package (Terracotta leather-trimmed seats and door inserts, premium floor mats, and 18-inch painted and machined-finish alloy wheels) is available on the 2015 Ford Fusion SE and Titanium trims.

The base naturally aspirated 2.5-liter I-4 makes 175 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, while the 1.5-liter EcoBoost I-5 is rated 181 hp and 185 lb-ft and the 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 is rated 240 hp and 270 lb-ft. EPA-rated fuel economy for the 2.5-liter is 22/34 mpg city/highway and the 1.5-liter is rated 24/36 mpg, while the 2.0-liter with front-drive is rated 22/33 mpg and the 2.0-liter with all-wheel-drive is rated 22/31 mpg.
