Fusion's Performance Is Up To You

The 2018 Accord comes with a 192 horsepower turbo-four engine, but a 252-horsepower turbo-four is available. Neither of those 2 engines comes close to matching the power found under the hood of the 2018 Ford Fusion Sport. In the Sport, you'll leave Accord drivers smelling your exhaust with its twin-turbocharged 325-horsepower 2.7L V6.

For drivers leery of that much power, the new Ford Fusion offers 3 additional engines ranging from 175 horsepower to 245 horsepower.

For drivers who want to kick gas, Ford also offers hybrid versions of the Fusion. These vehicles all exceed the EPA-estimated fuel economy of 30/38 city/highway MPG the Accord offers. These Ford hybrids include the Fusion Hybrid, which gets an EPA-estimated 43/41 city/highway MPG and the Fusion Energi that gets an EPA-estimated 97 MPG-e combined, including 22 miles of electric driving.
