Standard features include automatic headlights and power side mirrors. Available features include LED headlights, heated side mirrors, turn signal indicators, a power moonroof, fog lights, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and a rear spoiler.

Under the hood, the Fusion has four engine options, which are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Fusion is powered by a standard 175-hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder. A 181-hp, turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder and a 245-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder are also available. The most powerful engine option is found in the Sport trim, which comes with a 325-hp, twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6. All-wheel drive is also available for the Fusion.
