Standard Horsepower and Fuel Economy
For midsize sedan shoppers looking for more standard horsepower and better fuel economy, the new Toyota Camry is sure to become a favorite:
- Toyota Camry – The base Camry comes standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Together, this powertrain sends out a confident 178 hp and is still able to get an EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway and 24 mpg city.
- Ford Fusion – Like the Camry, the Ford Fusion also comes with a base 2.5L four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. On the Fusion, though, this powertrain setup is only good for 175 hp, and EPA estimates come in at 32 mpg highway and 21 mpg city.
The Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion both include quite a few must-have’s on the standard features list, including Bluetooth® connectivity, a rearview camera, cruise control, air conditioning, and full-power features. Unlike the Ford Fusion, though, the Toyota Camry comes with additional premium standard features like a sunroof, remote keyless entry, and power adjustable front seats. Plus, for your listening enjoyment, the Toyota Camry comes with six standard speakers, while the Ford Fusion only comes with four.
The 2017 Toyota Camry and 2017 Ford Fusion both earned five out of five stars in crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). However, the Toyota Camry earned the best overall rating of Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), while the Ford Fusion earned only the second best overall rating of Top Safety Pick. This is likely due in part to the fact that the Fusion earned the worst score of “Poor” for headlights and the second worst score of “Marginal” for ease of use of child seat anchors. The Camry, on the other hand, earned the second best score of “Acceptable” in both of these categories.
