EcoBoost™ technology

Why does the combination of turbocharging, direct fuel injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) in our EcoBoost engines deliver more? This 4-cylinder petrol engine is smaller and lighter than its competitors, so it delivers exceptional fuel economy, yet there is no compromise on power.

EPAS

Stable, responsive steering is the hallmark of a quality drive. Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) adjusts to feel lighter in slow traffic and heavier at higher speeds for greater control. It also adapts to changing conditions, like cross winds, to keep you on track. But it only comes to your assistance when it’s needed, saving you fuel.

Adaptive cruise controlfusion-performance-3

Adaptive cruise control is great on the open road. But even here you can find traffic. So instead of having to turn the system on and off, the new Fusion adapts. Sensors scan the traffic ahead, updating their positions 20 times a second. If traffic slows, so does your speed. When the traffic clears, it returns to your preset speed.
