Facelifted 2010 Ford Fusion unveiled | Rpmgo.com

Today, Ford has announced the 2010 Ford Fusion facelift, which, besides the obvious redesign, also got a new engine and a new six-speed transmission. This means the Fusion will be available with Ford’s all-new Duratec 2.5-liter I-4, producing 175 horsepower, an enhanced 3.0-liter V6 with 240 hp and a 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 263 hp for the Fusion Sport model. Ford claims that the Fusions equipped with the 2.5-liter engine will deliver at least 3 mpg better on the highway than the Honda Accord and 2 mpg better than the Toyota Camry. All engines are paired with six-speed transmissions which offers up to a 10 percent fuel economy improvement.

Ford also offers several fuel saving technologies, like EPS (Electric Power Steering), Adaptive Spark Ignition (senses what type of fuel is being injected into the motor and communicates the information to the powertrain control module, which adjusts the spark accordingly) and Aggressive Deceleration Fuel Shut-off (when the driver releases the accelerator pedal to slow down, the system temporarily turns off the fuel).
