2015 Ford Fusion Drops Manual Transmission; Adds Backup Camera
Sales for the Ford Fusion continue to set record after record since its redesign in 2012, and looking at the numbers so far this year, the nameplate is set to have its strongest year yet. For the 2015 model year, the Fusion receives changes to help keep it at the top of the midsize sedan segment. New for 2015, the Ford Fusion gains a Terracotta package available on the SE and Titanium models, which includes Terracotta door inserts, Terracotta leather-trimmed seats, premium floor mats, and 18-inch painted and machined alloy wheels. The Fusion also comes with six-way power adjustable passenger seats on the SE, and ten-way power adjustable passenger seats on the Titanium model. Now, Ford is offering all-wheel-drive on the Fusion SE Appearance and Luxury package models equipped with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine. A rearview camera is now standard on all models, along with configurable daytime running lamps, and for the Fusion S models, 16-inch, 10-spoke aluminum wheels are now standard. Power will come from a choice of seven engines, including two turbocharged and direct-injected EcoBoost engines, a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter, a hybrid electric, and a plug-in hybrid powertrain to fit all lifestyles. However, one option that will no longer be offered is a manual transmission. Source: Ford
