Here, we're dedicated to helping you every step of the way through your car buying journey, and we know that starts right here with the research process. In order to make it as simple as possible, we created this handy breakdown of the Ford Fusion vs Ford Explorer for you. Now, let's see how these two stack up against one another!

A Powerful Performance

With both the Fusion sedan and Explorer SUV, you'll find yourself with the ability to customize your vehicle to fully meet your needs. These two Ford models offer a plethora of different engine options to choose from, starting with the Fusion, which provides five.

  • 2.5L i-VCT: 175 horsepower / 175 lb-ft of torque
  • 1.5L Ti-VCT I-4 EcoBoost®: with Auto Start-Stop: 181 horsepower / 185 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L Ti-VCT I-4 EcoBoost®: 245 horsepower / 275 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Hybrid: 141 horsepower / 129 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Plug-In Hybrid: 141 horsepower /129 lb-ft of torque

Over in the Explorer, you'll have three different engine options to choose from. Also, a rear-wheel drivetrain comes standard, but for advanced traction and stability control during those snowy and icy winter commutes be sure to ask about the available Intelligent four-wheel drive system.

  • 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4: 300 horsepower / 310 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L EcoBoost® V6: 400 horsepower / 415 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.3L Hybrid: 318 horsepower / 322 lb-ft of torque

Interior Cabin Space

While both these vehicles boast a powerful performance, they start to differ a bit when it comes to interior cabin space. In the Fusion, you'll have room to comfortably sit up five riders, while the Explorer provides space for up to seven.
