The 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid has an EPA-estimated rating of 44 city/41 hwy/42 combined mpg. Its 2.0L I-4 Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine delivers 188 horsepower. The vehicle can travel at speeds up to 85 mph in the all-electric mode. To help you drive more efficiently, next-generation SmartGauge® with EcoGuide acts as a driving coach, providing real-time driving feedback, courtesy of screens on either side of the center-mounted speedometer. Left-side display screens include Engage and Empower modes, providing a variety of real-time information to help you maximize efficiency from your vehicle. When your driving becomes more efficient, the right-side cluster display grows leaves and vines. You can track the powertrains operation hybrid drive, electric drive, gas engine, plus instant and average fuel economy.
Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid
Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid provides the option of plugging in or not. It's designed to be efficient, due to a gas engine and a state-of-the-art, lithium-ion battery with the ability to operate in all-electric mode for an EPA-estimated range of up to 19 miles.* Plus, it features a regenerative braking system that captures the braking energy and stores it for later use. If you choose to plug in, you can fully charge the battery in 7 hours using the standard 120-volt convenience cord. Or, for faster charging, opt for an available Ford-recommended AeroVironment 240V home charging option. Both hardwired and portable options are available through 1-888-219-6747 or evsolutions.com/ford, which can fully recharge your vehicle in 2.5 hours. When fully charged, the EPA-estimated total driving range is 550 miles. The MyFord® Mobile** app and myfordmobile.com website also let you monitor and schedule charging for your vehicle from just about anywhere to help you maximize your range
Sleek, stylish and efficient.
Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid models have a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery (a larger one in the plug-in model) and an electric motor with a gasoline engine for efficient operation. These models also feature next-generation SmartGauge with EcoGuide, providing real-time information to encourage you to drive more efficiently. A standard Regenerative Braking System captures 90 percent of the kinetic energy and uses it to recharge the battery. In gas-powered models, two available EcoBoost engines are designed to enhance efficiency, thanks to turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable cam timing.
Fusion features a MacPherson strut-type with stabilizer bar and multilink independent rear suspension. This helps provide a smooth ride in straightaways and a balanced, nimble ride when the Fusion takes on a corner or curve.
Six-Speed SelectShift® Automatic with Paddle Shifters:
You don't have to know how to drive a manual transmission or learn how to master a clutch to enjoy the sporty feel of shifting gears. Using race-inspired technology, the available steering wheel-mounted paddles provide an exhilarating driving experience by letting you quickly and easily go from gear to gear without taking your hands off the steering wheel.
Next-Generation SmartGauge® with EcoGuide:
The dual LCD Next-generation SmartGauge® with EcoGuide provides real-time information to help you enhance the efficiency of your Fusion Hybrid or Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid. The MyView screen lets you customize screens to your liking. Configurable screens such as Brake Coach help you maximize your vehicle's efficiency. Left-side display screens include Engage and Empower modes.
In Engage, you'll see separate gauges for engine power and lithium-ion battery power and EV displayed when the vehicle is operating on battery power only. In Empower, which includes all the information in Engage, you'll also see how close you are to the gasoline engine on/off threshold and the amount of power being requested based on how far you're depressing the accelerator pedal. Five-way steering wheel-mounted controls make it all easy. Plus, as your driving efficiency increases, the right-side cluster display grows leaves and vines.
Standard Rear View Camera:
Put the gear selector in Reverse and the rear view camera automatically transmits the image of what's behind you to your touch screen when you're slowly backing up. The rear view camera is standard on all models.
Available Lane-Keeping System:
The Lane-Keeping System includes both the lane-keeping alert and the lane-keeping aid.* A camera mounted behind the windshield watches road lane markings to determine vehicle position and detect a lane departure. The system can operate during the day or night. Lane-keeping alert warns you through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic a rumble strip, should the system detect an unintentional lane departure. Lane-keeping aid actively applies steering torque, which alerts you to direct your vehicle back into the target lane, should the system detect an unintended lane departure.
Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert:
Radar in the rear quarter panels detects whether a vehicle is in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate sideview mirror. Cross-traffic alert uses radar to watch for traffic behind you when you're slowly backing out of a parking spot or your driveway. If cross-traffic alert sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be alerted by a visual display in the corresponding mirror and a signal in the message center.
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.
When you apply the brakes in a conventional vehicle, kinetic energy is lost due to friction. During braking in the Fusion Hybrid and the Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid, however, regenerative braking recovers more than 90 percent of this energy and sends it back to the battery pack to be stored for later use.
Smart driving technologies:
The technology in the 2016 Ford Fusion can make your drive more convenient and help alert you in the event of a potential collision.
The standard rear view camera transmits the image of what's behind you to your touch screen when you're slowly backing up.*
Available SYNC® voice-activated technology with MyFord Touch® allows you to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road while you make music selections, control the interior climate, and place or receive phone calls.27
Available inflatable rear outboard safety belts help distribute crash-force energy across more of the torso area than a traditional belt.
With your keys in your pocket or purse, available Intelligent Access with push-button start allows you to touch the door handle to unlock the driver's side door or all the doors. Once inside, just press the brake pedal and then the start button.
There are also available features that can warn you of vehicles detected in your blind spots and assist in parallel parking your car with minimal input from you.
Available Inflatable Rear Safety Belts:
The Fusion is the first vehicle in its class* to offer inflatable rear safety belts. These outboard rear safety belts help distribute crash-force energy across more of the torso area than traditional belts, which helps reduce the risk of injury, while providing support to the head and neck. In the event of a front or side crash, the inflatable safety belts hold the passenger in the appropriate seating position, helping to reduce risk of injury. These safety belts are compatible with many infant and child-safety booster seats.
