The 2007 Ford Fusion has been engineered to feel sportier than its mid-size competitors, and now that all-wheel drive is available, traction and handling have become greatly improved. Smart styling helps the Fusion stand out in a traditionally boring segment. Ford's 3.0L Duratec V6 engine is available with AWD and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It produces 221 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque, and has an EPA rating of 31 mpg on the highway.
