Will the new Fusion have an available manual transmission with the top engine (2.0L ecoboost)?


At this time, there is not a manual planned for the 2.0L GTDI, but the 2.0L does come standard with paddle shifters providing manual shift capability. There will be a manual option on the 1.6L GTDI.

Paula I am so disappointed that Ford is not offering manual transmission on the Fusion. I have driven manuals for most of my life and find them not only more fun to drive, but more stable in certain road conditions. I am currently negotiating a 2014 or 2015 2.0 L SE and my initial excitement is subdued knowing I will be driving a (sigh) automatic for the first time in many years.

Brian lame...the world needs more manuals. It increases reliability too. These new dsg boxes get slushy and have so many problems,just look at the focus. Give us more manuals Ford.

Joe I have a 1.6L SE with 6 speed manual.  I have leather heated seats, Ford MyTouch, awesome mileage and performance you won't be disappointed.  Good luck finding one on the lot!  I had to order mine

Pat Guerrera i am interested in a manual Fusion, also.  I am so tired of hearing that the paddle is the same thing.  What are they thinking making manual transmissions so hard to come by?

Jason F I read that they are going to offer a manual with the Focus Titanium. I am a big guy (6'4") and the Focus is not the class that I really want. Would be interested in a Fusion if I could have the manual transmission with the best engine and interior features. Still haven't gotten an answer on this. Not even a "we can't comment on possible features at this time." response.

Kyle R I would love that too, but considering the Focus is only available in base trim with a manual, I wouldn't expect anything different with the Fusion.
