The Ford Fusion Hybrid is still home to 2.0-liter, Atkinson-cycle engine that makes 144 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. That petrol-powered engine is mated to an 88 kW electric motor and a 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Altogether, the Fusion's hybrid powerplant sends 188 combined horsepower in the direction of the front wheels via an electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT).
EPA-estimated fuel efficiency on the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid is up to 42 mpg combined, 43 city and 41 mpg hwy. That's a bump up from last year's model in both combined and highway ratings.
