Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Ford Fusion and the Toyota Camry are both midsize four-door sedans. The Fusion comes with front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. The Camry comes only with front-wheel drive.

When it comes to the power provided by their standard engines, the Ford Fusion and its 175 horsepower come up short when compared to the Toyota Camry’s 203-horsepower standard engine. But the Fusion’s top optional engine outpowers the Camry, with 325 horsepower compared to 301 horsepower for the Camry. But in the real world, having more than 300 horsepower in a midsize sedan makes both of these vehicles feel like performance cars. 

For those who are eco-minded, the Ford Fusion offers you the choice of hybrid or plug-in hybrid models. The Toyota Camry also has a hybrid version. 

Overall, there are some significant differences between these two sedans. The Ford Fusion offers you more horsepower, the option of all-wheel drive and a plug-in hybrid model. The Toyota Camry has many advanced driver assistance technologies as standard equipment. Another thing to consider is that the Fusion is still on the same platform it has been on since the 2013 model year. The Camry is on a brand-new platform as of the 2018 model year. This makes the Camry a much more up-to-date car. Take a look at both and see what you think.
