Impeccable design with efficiency to match. 

That’s the 2014 Ford Fusion.

The midsize sedan is sleek and stylish with a standard features like a chrome grille, pedestal mirrors mounted on the doors, projector laser-cut headlamps and LED taillamps. Interior ambient lighting, 19-inch wheels, and dual integrated bright exhaust are available options.  

The Fusion comes with a standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine and optional turbocharged 1.4L,1.5L and 2.0L engines.  

But your choices don’t end there. The 2014 Fusion lineup also includes the Fusion Hybrid and the Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid. Both are powered by a combination electric motor and 2.0L gas engine. Both feature the SmartGauge with EcoGuide that helps you drive more efficiently. Also available are 1.6L and 1.5L I-4 EcoBoost engines that are designed to be fuel-efficient yet powerful.  The 1.6L EcoBoost engine comes with a manual transmission. The 1.5L EcoBoost engine comes with a six-speed automatic transmission.  

The Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid includes a  state-of-the-art 7.6 kW lithium-ion battery and electric motor with a gasoline engine. The battery provides enough power to operate in all-electric mode for commutes of an EPA-estimated range of up to 21 miles. The Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid offers the option of plugging in or not. With plug-in capability, you can fully charge the battery overnight using a 120-volt outlet. There is also an available 240-volt home charging station that provides a full recharge in approximately 2.5 hours. When fully charged, the EPA-estimated gas plus electric driving range is 620 miles. When the battery is depleted or more power is required, the car runs as a traditional gas-electric hybrid.
