Ask Ford
Q.

Why does the 2013 Fusion not have a V6 engine? Not everyone is into four cylinders. How about offering an optional V6 for 2013?

A.

Fusion offers a pair of advanced EcoBoost® four-cylinder engines – combining smaller overall size with direct injection and a turbocharger for efficiency and uncompromised performance – smart downsizing that makes a V6 option unnecessary.  The 1.6-liter EcoBoost unit delivers a projected 179 horsepower. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost performance option will provide an estimated 237 horsepower.

Sue manes I will buy a Fusion if you put 6 cyl back into the Fusion.  I have bought 3 Fusions all 6 cylinder 2006, 2009 and 2011.  In 2013 I changed to another brand because you only provide 4 cylinder!

Robert M Hey guys, take a test drive with the 2 liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine. I think you'll be surprised. I want a smooth and very responsive vehicle but I don't need to have smoke coming from my tires on startup. You may feel different.

Dick Brown I would buy a Ford Fusion if it had a six cylinder motor because I like the body style. A four cylinder engine is not for me. If I had my way I would have a 302 V-8 engine. Then you could sell this car.Dick Brown

Joey Loey I went with a new 2012 Fusion Sport AWD over the 2013 Fusion, because of the V6....

jeff This shows the extent to which Ford is out of touch with the American consumer. The '06-'12 Fusion V6 had a very high take rate. I won't even consider a new Fusion anymore because it doesn't have a V6.

Nick As an Auto engineer and Ford die-hard, with 10 year old V-8 sedan that gets similar if not better mpg, I was looking into getting a 2013 Fusion, but without at least the V-6, which was by far the more popular option in my region, and the foolish stigma that a V-8 can't be efficient, very very very sadly have to pass.

wm12324 Love the Styling on the Fusion, but Ford, you lost a potential customer- who wants a V-6 Engine......Bye,Bye.

Andrew Horsepower in a mid-size sedan has become a luxury only option. The 2013 MKZ, which shares the same chassis as the 2013 Fusion, will have the 300HP engine from the base model Mustang. This is an industry trend, due to public demand and government quotas.

Alec s I dont like fords answer If they put a 3.5L V6 that makse 288 horsepower and 254 ft.lbs of torque while it may not do as good on gas millage, It would last longer

will Agreed...why couldn't Ford just drop the v6 from the mustang in there? That's 305hp by the way...not the same HP and 19/29 MPG.

N. Rodriguez The v6 engines make about the same power, for slightly less fuel efficiancy, but at a much lower cost. Compound boosting a car with technology to back it cost more, than keeping a larger engine naturally aspirated. Just look at the explorer, the 4-banger ecoboost cost more than the v6, for the same performance, and a 2-3mpg difference.

Mattheu Kok But doesn't the new Kia turbo 4 have 274 hp? Last I checked the 3.5 was more powerful than the eb too
