2018 Ford Fusion Vs 2018 Toyota Camry
Mid-size sedans fill an important need in the automotive market. By comfortably seating 5 people, they make great family cars. With more advanced technology, and important safety features, they also work just as well for an individual driver. Within this class, the Toyota Camry has spent most of its years as the top contender. Since its release for the 2005 model year, the Ford Fusion has attracted a lot of attention as a potential Camry killer, giving drivers reliability and safety but adding uncommon style and performance.
The Fusion’s aggressive design, seen especially well with the 2017 facelift, sets it apart from a class often criticized for being bland and uninspiring. Seeking to push back against this stigma, Toyota redesigned the Camry for 2018 with a unique front fascia and Lexus-inspired grille. Both models feature available V6 for composed performance.

2018 Ford Fusion Trim Level and Configuration Options
One of the things that’s helped make the Ford Fusion so successful in its class is the sheer number of available options and configurations from which drivers can choose. The 2018 Ford Fusion is available in 11 trim levels and with 6 engine options.
These available trim level options range from the S (base model) up through the Ford Fusion Platinum (top trim level). Standard technology and comfort features available at the S level include push button start, Ford’s inventive rotary gear shift dial, SYNC infotainment system, rear view camera, and cutting-edge Ford safety technology.
The top trim level, Platinum gives drivers a voice-activated navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link®, SYNC® 3 with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Ford’s Lane-Keeping System, and more.
A sport trim level is available that upgrades the engine to a 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine, and gives drivers Ford’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) for full vehicle control. A 6-Speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with paddle shifters rounds out this sporty trim level option.
If you’d rather see your fuel economy gauge, rather than your tachometer, rise, the S, SE, Titanium and Platinum trim levels are available with a hybrid power train. For further sustainability, the 2018 Ford Fusion offers plug-in hybrid Energi models for the SE, Titanium, and Platinum trim levels of the 2018 Ford Fusion.
