The second generation Ford Fusion was debuted at the 2012 North American Auto Show in Detroit. The new series is the first sedan to offer gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions.

The 2012 Fusion can be powered by three different powertrains and has three levels of equipment to choose from: S, SE and Titanium.

With the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine the Fusion is expected to become the best-in-class four-cylinder non-hybrid in terms of fuel efficiency, with a 26 mpg consumption in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.

The engines are complemented with technologies such as an automatic start stop system to shut off the engine at stationary idle, front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive applications, and a choice between automatic and manually shifted six-speed transmissions.
