The 2013 Ford Fusion offers the broadest selection of powertrains in fuel-efficient midsize car segment. It offers plug-in hybrids and hybrid alternatives, a pair of four-cylinder EcoBoost, a naturally aspirated four-cylinder, automatic starting system shutdown to turn off the engine at idle steady, with front-wheel drive applications, and choose from automatic six-speed manual gearbox.

It is expected that 1.6-liter EcoBoost is to deliver best-in-class four-cylinder non-hybrid fuel efficiency in the city and on the highway. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine - paired with a paddle-shifted six-speed Select Shift Automatic transmission, which is available with 19-inch wheels and tires, and all-wheel drive with the ability to send additional torque to the rear - is the Fusion performance option.

Lane Keeping System: Three elements of class-exclusive technology consist to help a driver maintain proper lane position. With the use of it a small, forward-facing camera behind the inside rearview mirror, the system "looks" down the road, monitoring lane lines to determine that the car is on course. The system will alert a driver if drowsiness or erratic lane-keeping is detected. The second element warns a driver with a steering wheel vibration if the Fusion drifts too close to lane markings. Finally, lane keeping aid will actually apply pressure on the steering to help bring the car back into proper lane position.

Adaptive cruise control: Using forward-looking radar, this system "looks" down the road when activated, slowing the Fusion when slower traffic is detected ahead. Adaptive cruise control enables collision warning with brake support to help slow the car if the potential of a crash is detected

Active park assist: Employing sensors, this technology can identify a suitable parallel parking space, calculate the trajectory and steer the car to properly position it within the spot. All a driver need do is operate accelerator and brake pedals

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross-traffic alert: Sensors in both Fusion rear quarter-panels are able to detect traffic in a driver's blind spot, providing both audible and visual warnings if traffic - unseen by the driver - is detected. BLIS technology enables cross-traffic alert, warning the driver of oncoming traffic when backing out of a parking space with obstructed views, such as between two large vans.
