The lineup of conventional gas-powered 2011 Fusions includes choices among three engines, three transmissions and front- or all-wheel drive, and the EPA issues fuel economy estimates for each combination.
The highest estimates are for a front-drive Fusion with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder with the base six-speed automatic: 23/33 mpg city/highway. The lowest are 17/24 mpg for an all-wheel-drive model with the 3.5-liter V-6 and Select Shift six-speed automatic that allows manual shifts.
The gas-electric Fusion Hybrid — which comes with a 2.5-liter engine, continuously variable automatic transmission and front drive — earns EPA ratings of 41/36 mpg.
Ratings for specific combinations of engine, transmission and drive wheels are available from the EPA at fueleconomy.gov. Remember that these are only estimates, and your mileage will vary based on how and where you drive.
