Ford made a few changes to the Fusion for 2015, but not enough to keep it competitive with the newest members or the class, like the Chrysler 200.
Even the standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder in the Chrysler 200 has 185 horsepower, which is more than the Ford 2.4-liter or their optional EcoBoost 1.5-liter motor. Both cars offer an upgrade motor option, but the Fusion has an EcoBoost 2.0-liter turbo with just 240hp. Chrysler offers you a smoother running 3.6-liter V6 with 295hp. 0-60 times reflect the power difference; the Chrysler 200 needing just 6.2 seconds while the Fusion needs nearly 7 seconds.
Another reason why the Chrysler 200 is quicker than the Fusion is its class-exclusive 9-speed automatic transmission. Ford only gives the Fusion six gear ratios to choose from. More gears mean the 200 can start off in a very low 1st gear for quick acceleration, and still have a high top gear for good economy on the freeway. The 9-speed transmission also lets the motor stay in its peak power range, no matter how fast you are going.
Those extra gears, and a sleeker shape team up to give the 200 better mileage, despite having more power. The official EPA estimate for the base model cars is 23 city/36 highway for the Chrysler, and 22 city/34 highway for the Fusion. You’ll be getting 1 more mpg in city driving, and 2 extra on the highway with the Chrysler.
With more power, better fuel economy, and a much more premium style, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is really making a name for itself. Visit US 1 CDJ in Sanford, NC and see just how little you have to spend to drive a premium car like the Chrysler 200.View Inventory
