Not only is the 2011 Ford Fusion a good value and more charismatic stylistically but it also routinely averages the fewest mechanical failures of any new Blue Oval product according to a multitude of quality surveys in the industry. This fact is made all of the more impressive by Ford’s overall quality rankings which hover very near those enjoyed by Honda and Toyota.
The base Fusion 4-cylinder starts at $19,820 and comes with the 2.5 liter 175 horsepower/172 lb. feet of torque Duratec motor. A six-speed manual is standard and a six-speed automatic is optional. Both six-cylinder engine models come exclusively with the six-speed automatic and the Fusion Hybrid which we won’t discuss today comes with a CVT (continuously variable transmission).
InsiderCarReviews.com is going to be reviewing a Fusion Hybrid in just a month so have patience, dear readers. We are keeping our fingers crossed the CVT automatic isn’t a clone of the noisy, recalcitrant and maddening to operate variants that haunt so many hybrids. The bad CVT in the Altima really ruined what, for us, was otherwise a fine family sedan to sell.
Most Fusion buyers select a number of options when they order their car thanks to tasty offerings like Sync, Sony premium audio system, power moonroof, ambient interior lighting, leather seats and much more. In fact, Ford has found that most of its Fusion 4-cylinder buyers are opting for a fully loaded SEL model as many ex-SUV owners downsize into something cheaper to buy and cheaper to run. Everyone knows $5 a gallon gas is not a question of if but when.
