I’m close to committing to a Ford Fusion, but I’m just not sure of my engine options or how to decide what’s best for me. How many cylinders are standard in the Ford Fusion’s engine?

The newest Ford Fusion features a four-cylinder engine capable of 175 to 245 horsepower, depending on whether you choose the standard 1.5-liter engine or one of its turbocharged counterparts.
If you’re hungry for more horsepower, there’s also an optional 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 ** engine that packs a powerful **325 horsepower and can generate 380 lb-ft of torque.
When debating your Ford’s engine options, it’s important to remember that high-powered engines like turbos or V6 configurations often come with higher insurance premiums to match. That’s because larger, more powerful engines pose greater risks in the eyes of insurance companies—and they’re also more costly to repair.
Both of those factors mean higher rates on your annual Ford car insurance bill—on top of the Fusion’s already notoriously high premium costs.
So before making any costly commitments, be sure to ask yourself what you intend to use the car for (Is it a daily driver? A weekend cruiser? An extra family car?) along with what your driving needs and non-negotiables are, and (most importantly) what your budget is.
