2018 Ford Fusion Lineup: More Powertrain Options, Better Power Ratings and Better Fuel Efficiency Ratings than the 2018 Kia Optima Lineup

Nothing says versatility like having six powertrain choices to choose from, which happens to be exactly what is offered by the 2018 Ford Fusion lineup. And these aren’t just any old powertrain choices. These are powerful, efficient, capable and fun to drive powertrain choices, including gas mileage focused gasoline engine options, powerful V6 engine options, hybrid powertrain options and electric powertrain options. The 2018 Kia Optima, on the other hand, has only five powertrain choices to choose from, with no electric powertrain options.

Now, just because the new Ford Fusion lineup has more powertrain options doesn’t automatically mean it’s a better lineup than the new Kia Optima lineup, so we’d better take a closer look at those powertrain offerings. As you can see in the table above, the 2018 Ford Fusion lineup offers higher max horsepower and max torque ratings than the 2018 Kia Optima lineup while also offering better max fuel efficiency ratings. So, no matter how you look at it, the new Ford Fusion lineup is the better of the two lineups – and the better choice for anyone looking for a new sedan.
