The Ford Fusion S offers drivers a well-equipped and distinctively American mid-size sedan at a value-oriented price point. Powered by a 160-horsepower, 2.3-liter inline Duratec four-cyclinder engine, the 2008 Fusion S includes such safety features as antilock brakes and a tire pressure monitoring system, both of which are new additions for 2008.

The 2008 Fusion S comes with a standard five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic. Other features include an illuminated entry system, cruise control, air conditioning, power windows, dual-stage front airbags, side curtain airbags, quad halogen headlamps, and a four-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a CD player and an MP3 input jack, among other features.

Drivers can choose from five new exterior color options, including Moss Green, Dark Ink Blue, and Light Sage. The Fusion also includes a highly flexible interior, with a pop-up storage bin in the instrument panel, a clamshell armrest, and the largest trunk in its class.

The 2008 Ford Fusion SE offers drivers a mid-level package of standard features that includes a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, powered side mirrors, a fold-down passenger seat, a message center with a trip computer, steering-wheel-mounted audio and speed controls, and a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with an in-dash six-disc CD player and an MP3 input jack.

Other features include 16-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps, antilock brakes, and a tire pressure monitoring system, as well as an illuminated entry system, cruise control, air conditioning, power windows, dual-stage front airbags, side curtain airbags, and quad halogen headlamps.

Ford dropped a 160-horsepower, 2.3-liter inline Duratec four-cyclinder engine under the hood of the Fusion SE. It links to either a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.

Options include the Ford Sync communications connectivity system, which enables hands-free access to cell phones and MP3 players (due late in the 2008 model year), as well as an optional Sport Appearance Package.

The 2008 Ford Fusion SEL combines distinctive styling, affordability, and a long list of standard and premium features. Ford's hope is to continue to attract buyers in a competitive marketplace for mid-size sedans, and the automaker appears to be gaining ground as drivers respond in a positive way to vehicles like the Fusion SEL.

Safety features like antilock brakes and a tire pressure monitoring system are now standard on the Fusion SEL, as are more upscale features such as electronic automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with controls for the audio and speed systems, heated exterior mirrors, an upgraded cloth interior, and 17-inch wheels with performance tires. A six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with an in-dash six-disc CD player and an MP3 input jack is also included.

Standard power comes in the form of a 160-horsepower, 2.3-liter inline Duratec four-cyclinder engine, which links to either a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Fusion SEL is available with either a power moonroof or an upgraded eight-speaker Audiophile AM/FM stereo system. Other options include the Ford Sync communications connectivity system, which enables hands-free access to cell phones and MP3 players (due late in the 2008 model year), and an optional Sport Appearance Package with a number of exterior and interior upgrades.

Slotted mid-level in the Fusion lineup for 2008, the Fusion V6 SE combines an upgraded list of standard features with a more powerful 3.0-liter, Duratec 30 V6 engine that produces 221 horsepower. The engine provides respectable power while remaining fuel efficient and producing reduced emissions. It links to either a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic.

Safety features for the 2008 Fusion have been upgraded to include antilock brakes and a tire pressure monitoring system. The Fusion V6 SE adds a number of other standard features, including a

six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, powered side mirrors, a message center with a trip computer, steering-wheel-mounted audio and speed controls, and a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with an in-dash six-disc CD player and an MP3 input jack.

A number of features are designed to raise the Fusion V6 SE above the competition. For instance, the front passenger seat folds down for greater flexibility in interior space, while grocery hooks in the trunk improve functionality. And an optional ambient lighting system, available late in the 2008 model year, is designed to improve the interior atmosphere.

The Fusion V6 SE is also available with a power moonroof and an upgraded eight-speaker Audiophile AM/FM stereo system. Other options include the Ford Sync communications connectivity system, which enables hands-free access to cell phones and MP3 players (due late in the 2008 model year), and an optional Sport Appearance Package with a number of exterior and interior upgrades.

As its name implies, the 2008 Fusion V6 AWD adds both an active All-Wheel Drive system and a 221-horsepower, 3.0-liter Duratec 30 V6 engine to the standard Fusion package. The All-Wheel Drive system improves the vehicle's traction on all types of road surfaces, including ice, mud, or gravel. It constantly monitors traction and applies engine torque to the wheels with the most grip to ensure the driver has control of the vehicle at all times. At highway speeds, the system shuts off to conserve fuel.

New features for the 2008 Fusion V6 SE AWD include standard antilock brakes and a tire pressure monitoring system. The vehicle also comes equipped with a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, powered side mirrors, a message center with a trip computer, steering-wheel-mounted audio and speed controls, and a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with an in-dash six-disc CD player and an MP3 input jack.

The vehicle's front passenger seat folds down for greater flexibility in interior space, while grocery hooks in the trunk improve functionality. An optional ambient lighting system, available late in the 2008 model year, will improve the car's interior atmosphere.

Options for the Fusion V6 SE AWD include a power moonroof and an upgraded eight-speaker Audiophile AM/FM stereo system, as well as the Ford Sync communications connectivity system, which enables hands-free access to cell phones and MP3 players (due late in the 2008 model year), and an optional Sport Appearance Package with a number of exterior and interior upgrades.

The best-equipped Fusion model available for 2008, the V6 SEL AWD combines a premium package of standard features with an active all-wheel-drive system and a 221-horsepower, 3.0-liter Duratec 30 V6 engine, all wrapped in a bold exterior design distinguished by its quad-beam headlights and three-bar chrome grille, which has become a company-wide design element.

The Fusion's all-wheel-drive system constantly monitors traction and, in the event of slippage, applies engine torque to the wheels with the most grip to ensure the driver has control of the vehicle on all types of road surfaces, including ice, mud, and gravel. At highway speeds, the all-wheel-drive system shuts off to conserve fuel.

Ford upgraded the feature list for the 2008 Fusion to include such safety-related improvements as antilock brakes and a tire-pressure monitoring system. The Fusion V6 SEL AWD also comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated exterior mirrors, an upgraded cloth interior, a keyless entry keypad, electronic automatic climate control, and 17-inch wheels with performance tires, as well as a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with an in-dash six-disc CD player and an MP3 input jack. Standard equipment also includes a five-speed manual transmission, while a six-speed automatic is optional.

To improve the interior's flexibility, the front passenger seat folds down, while grocery hooks in the trunk improve functionality. An optional ambient lighting system, available late in the 2008 model year, helps improve the vehicle's interior atmosphere.

High-end options include a Reverse Sensing System, a power moonroof, and an upgraded eight-speaker audiophile AM/FM stereo system. Other options include the Ford Sync communications connectivity system, which enables hands-free access to cell phones and MP3 players (due late in the 2008 model year), and an optional Sport Appearance Package with a number of exterior and interior upgrades.
