2017 Fusion Sport: Model Highlights

The Fusion Sport gets its own exclusive engine—the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine. The 2.7L V6 delivers high-performance power for serious driving enthusiasts. It’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Sport is equipped with intelligent all-wheel drive. The system’s sensors balance torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction. While this system is standard on the Sport, it is an available option on the SE, the Titanium, and the Platinum.

The Sport also features a rear decklid spoiler, which provides a sporty touch to fit the name of the model. 19-inch premium painted tarnished dark wheels give the Sport a more aggressive and sporty appearance, as well, and leather-trimmed sport seats with suede inserts top it all off. Optional packages offered for the Fusion Sport include the Sport Upgrade Package, the Sport Driver Assist Package, and the Equipment Group 401A value package. Starting MSRP for the Sport is $33,475 with an estimated MPG of 17/26.
