2010 Ford Fusion 4-banger scores best-in-class 23/34 mpg!


When we drove the thoroughly refreshed Fusion out in California after the LA Auto Show, it proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable ride. It now turns out that the Fusion is not only fun to drive, but also fuel efficient in forms other than the new Fusion Hybrid. The EPA has just finished crunching the numbers on fuel consumption for the four-cylinder Fusion and Mercury Milan, and the results are good. Very good. The 2.5L four-cylinder with new six-speed automatic is rated at 23 mpg city and 34 mpg on the highway. By comparison, the 2009 2.3L Fusion was rated at just 20/28 mpg.

Those numbers are good enough to beat out every other four-cylinder mid-size sedan sold in the U.S. Compared to offerings from Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Chevrolet and Hyundai, it beats the Altima's 23 mpg city mileage and the Malibu's 33 mpg highway number.

another article with quotes from one of my favorite Fomoco-people :)

Ford Fusion Tops Toyota Camry, Honda Accord Again With Best-in-Class 34 MPG 4-Cylinder Model - Finance.YAHOO.com

..."Take your pick: Whether you want a gas-powered or hybrid mid-sized sedan, the new Fusion offers the best fuel economy in America," said Barb Samardzich, Ford's vice president of Powertrain Engineering. "We promised to offer best-in-class or among the very best fuel economy with every new vehicle we introduce, and we are making good on that pledge with hybrids, new high-tech gasoline engines, new six-speed transmissions and other fuel efficient technologies."
...
"We've done it in the heart of the truck segment with the new 2010 Ford F-150, and now we've done it in the heart of the car segment with Fusion," Samardzich said. "We understand how important fuel economy is to customers, and Ford is committed to delivering leadership. The great news is that our significant investment in fuel efficiency leadership is going to continue to pay off with every new vehicle launch."...

Most of the fuel economy improvement goes to the new 6 speed automatic. Admittedly it is a GM Joint Venture, but it is built by Ford. Barb was Chief Engineer of Transmission prior to her current gig of VP of Powertrain.
