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.
