2011 Ford Fusion Overview
With a stylish three-bar grille, various power options, interior amenities and impressive fuel economy, the 2011 Ford Fusion truly is a blend of everything you would want in a midsize sedan.
After consecutive years of enhancements and tweaks to just about every part of the car, the 2011 Fusion takes a breather to allow buyers a chance to enjoy the current version. The Fusion is available in four trims – S, SE, SEL and Sport. Out of those four trims, there are four available engines that yield tremendous power. A 2.5-liter, 175-horsepower I-4 engine provides impressive power for a base model, while the 3.0-liter, 240-horsepower V-6 is both powerful and versatile with a FlexFuel option. The Sport comes equipped with a 3.5-liter, 263-horsepower V-6 that will raise a few eyebrows with its sublime power.
For enhanced handling and traction, the 2011 Ford Fusion offers all-wheel drive on V-6 models, which is class-exclusive. The Fusion Sport features 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome exhaust pipes, a rear spoiler and leather seats with contrasting accents. Fusing power with fuel economy, the Fusion gets an estimated 17-23 mpg in the city and 24-34 mpg on the highway and has a more-efficient twin, the Ford Fusion Hybrid for those who desire more mpg’s. However, the gas-only Fusion stacks up well against its midsize rivals, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
Interior amenities include the available SYNC™ Communications System, which allows you to use voice commands to access your music collection by genre, album, artist or song title and operate your Bluetooth®. The optional voice-activated DVD-based navigation system has an 8-inch color LCD monitor and a 10GB hard drive that stores photos and music. An optional Sony sound system features Dolby 5.1 surround sound, 390 watts and 12 speakers with two subwoofers giving you optimal sound performance. The 2011 Fusion seats five and features a 60/40-split rear seat. Heated front seats, leather upholstery and dual-zone air conditioning is optional.
Standard 4-wheel disc antilock brakes prevent wheel lockup and shorten stopping distances. Six airbags come standard and the new Reverse Sensing System uses ultrasonic waves to help you parallel park in tight spaces. A rear-view camera is also optional. The available Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross Traffic Alert is exclusive to the 2011 Ford Fusion and can detect objects within a 65-foot range from either side of the Fusion.
Ride in style and in comfort with the powerfully efficient and fun 2011 Ford Fusion.
