EcoBoost® Engines

Choose your EcoBoost® engine.

The 2017 Ford Fusion now has three EcoBoost® engines to choose from: the 1.5L, now with standard Auto Start-Stop Technology; the 2.0L; and new to Fusion V6 Sport, the 2.7L EcoBoost®. All combine three different technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) – to enhance performance and efficiency.


Engine features include:

  • Direct fuel injection and turbocharging
  • Piston cooling jets for durability
  • Paddle shifters


The 2017 Fusion V6 Sport has so many thrilling features you just might be late for dinner.

  • New 2.7L turbocharged EcoBoost® V6 engine
  • 325 hp/380 lb.-ft. of torque11
  •  Standard AWD
  • Continuously controlled damping (CCD)
  • With CCD, the 2017 Fusion uses an advanced suite of sensors that constantly monitor the vehicle’s suspension motion, body movement, steering and braking. The algorithm uses data from these sensors to adjust the suspension damping in milliseconds to help keep the body of the vehicle quiet and smoothly on track. The system also allows users to choose the ride, with comfort, normal or sport modes.
  •  Fusion has a special pothole defense system mechanism within its standard CCD suspension, which provides some protection against jarring impact and costly wheel and tire repairs from the dreaded highway pitfalls.

Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid

The Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid comes equipped with a gas engine and a lithium-ion battery. With the convenience of charging options, the MyFord® Mobile18 app and the myfordmobile.com website, you can monitor and schedule charging for your vehicle from just about anywhere to help you extend your battery range. As you drive, Fusion Energi decides whether to run on its electric motor alone or to turn on its 2.0L Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine as needed. On short commutes, it may run all-electric and use no gasoline at all – even while cruising at highway speeds. Fusion Energi has a fuel consumption rating of 2.4Le/100 km (116 MPGe) city/hwy combined (electricity + gas),* an all-electric driving range of up to 35 km, and a gas-plus-electric driving range of up to 982 km.*

*Fuel consumption ratings based on Government of Canada approved test methods. Actual fuel consumption will vary. 53-litre fuel tank. Le/100 km is the Government of Canada equivalent measure of gasoline fuel efficiency for electric mode operation. Actual driving range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviours, vehicle maintenance, and lithium-ion battery age.


2017 Ford Fusion electric power-assisted steering (EPAS)

Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS)

Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to deliver the precise feel and control you need at higher speeds, as well as the assistance slower speeds require. EPAS features drift control and active nibble control. Drift control technology detects road conditions – such as a crowned road surface or crosswinds – and adjusts the EPAS to compensate. The active nibble control feature uses the EPAS motor to reduce unwanted vibrations in the steering wheel. The result – a comfortable driving experience and responsive steering.
2017 Ford Fusion Auto Start-Stop Technology

Auto Start-Stop Technology

You can help reduce vehicle emissions with Auto Start-Stop Technology. When the vehicle comes to a stop in city driving, the engine is automatically shut off. The engine seamlessly restarts the instant your foot leaves the brake pedal. Standard on the 1.5L EcoBoost® engine.
