Performance is a driving factor with the 2015 Ford Fusion and it shows.  Fusion offers 3 engine choices — 1.5L EcoBoost I-4, 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 and 2.5L i-VCT I-4 — that deliver both
power and efficiency.  6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters offers a fun-to-drive experience.

1.5L EcoBoost I-4 is just one of the three engines available with 181 horsepower @ 6000 rpm  and 185 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4320 rpm.  The engine block is made of high-pressure die-cast aluminum for
strength and light weight benefits.  The computer-controlled clutch on belt-driven water pump is also an impressive feat of engineering.  THe water-cooled charged air cooler provides a more efficient feed of air into the engine.  Cast-iron crankshaft, balance shaft and belt-driven primary drive system, including a camshaft drive system, contribute to the reduced NVH and improved durability.  The lightweight composite intake manifold helps reduce vehicle weight and improve efficiency.

The Powertrain control module (PCM) makes real-time adjustments to the fuel delivery/air mixture and spark timing to deliver a fun-to-drive and fuel responsible engine and transmission combination.
Front-end accessory drive (FEAD) belt technology eliminates the need for a belt tensioner for driving
the alternator, water pump and A/C compressor accessory drive pulleys, helping reduce overall
vehicle weight and improving efficiency.  The 2015 Ford Fusion uses a timing belt.  Ford offers an available with 2 transmission choices: 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with thumb switch operation (standard) or 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with thumb switch operation and Auto Start-Stop (not available with Appearance Package or available 18" wheels).

Shared EcoBoost Engine Technologies make your life better with Ford.  The twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) and dual overhead camshaft (DOHC), lightweight aluminum cylinder head with 4 valves per cylinder utilizes aluminum engine block and cylinder head help
reduce weight to aid efficiency.  Eco-Boost technology also utilizes gasoline direct-injection and a single turbocharger with a smart charging alternator.  The Fail-Safe Engine Cooling System paired with the aggressive deceleration fuel shutoff (ADFSO) and intercooler reduces incoming air temperature technology help to ensure that your vehicle is protected even when overheating conditions may begin.  Eco-boost technology also offers Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor tracks and notifies customer of oil change intervals of up to 10,000 miles.
