Ford has just added pricing information to its online configurator for the redesigned 2013 Fusion sedan. While the exact figures will likely change before the new Fusion goes on sale this fall, the development does shed light on the basic pricing ballpark the car will play in.
The entry-level Fusion S, which comes with a 175 horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a six-speed automatic, starts at $22,495 per the configurator (its unclear whether the pricing includes destination). The Fusion SE lists for $24,490 and adds standard niceties such as 17-inch wheels (the base car gets steel wheels with hubcaps), a 10-Way power driver seat, a center folding armrest and A/C ducts for the rear passengers, SIRIUS satellite radio and body color rocker moldings.
While it comes standard with the 2.5-liter mill, the SE can also be upgraded with an 1.6-liter Ecoboost four with 179 horsepower (and 37 mpg highway) or a 2.0-liter EcoBoost making 237 ponies. The 1.6-liter model, which is the only Fusion available with a six-speed manual gearbox, is priced from $25,290, while the 2.0-liter commands $26,745.
The top-spec Fusion Titanium will set back a digital shopper $30,995 and includes the 2.0-liter Ecoboost in addition to a wealth of other standard kit. Highlights from the equipment list include leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable seats, a 12-speaker Sony premium audio system with HD radio and a rearview camera. The Titanium also offers all-wheel-drive as a $2,000 option.
Finally, those looking for Toyota Camry Hybrid-besting mileage can opt for the $27,995 Fusion SE Hybrid, which nets an estimated 47 mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highway.
