We've noticed that 2013 Ford Fusion configurator has been updated with dollar values for each of its four models, however, we're not so sure the pricing is that black-and-white. Ford has also updated the disclaimer at the bottom of the page, to read, "Prices and features are for survey purposes only and are subject to change and features may become unavailable at the time of vehicle introduction." In other words, don't get too fixated on the numbers, as they're not locked down yet. And by playing with the configurator, you're likely serving as a FoMoCo lab rat – after all, this is the company that never met a focus group it didn't like.

It's worth noting that Ford has not issued an official press release on pricing yet. But for now, it seems like the base Fusion S will start at $22,495, though we're not sure whether that includes destination or not. Stepping up to the SE at $24,490 will upgrade the steel wheels to alloys, add heated, lighted mirrors with turn signal indicators, and get you body color rocker panels. Inside, the SE has a power driver's seat and a better stereo, and backseat passengers get an armrest and their own HVAC ducts. The SE also allows you to order other stuff, including navigation and start/stop, or opt for a different engine than the base-spec 2.5-liter four-cylinder with automatic transmission.

The 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder is available with a manual or automatic on the SE for $25,290, while the start/stop-equipped version (automatic only) is $25,585. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost with automatic is $26,745 when ordered in SE trim. Ford lists a number of different packages and options, but they seem to be offered on a sliding scale, such that the packages are more expensive on the lower-priced models. For instance, the Luxury Package with leather and heated seats, among other equipment, is $1,505 on the 1.6-liter EcoBoost but only $1,050 on the 2.0-liter EcoBoost.

On the SE Hybrid, which starts at $27,995 and is equipped with a non-EcoBoost 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a CVT, the same Luxury Package is listed at $2,000. Apparently if you're saving all that money on gas, you can afford to pay double the guy with the most powerful engine.

At the top of the Fusion price list, of course, rests the Titanium, which offers a lot of the optional stuff standard for $30,995. It's also the only way to get all-wheel drive, which will set you back $32,995. Note that the Titanium is exclusively powered by the 2.0-liter EcoBoost and is not available with a manual, so you won't be configuring your Fusion as a dual-use weekend rally car.

But then again, Ford will likely change this all tomorrow.

      If the Fusion Hybrid gets a combined 46 mpg and is priced at $27.9k as the web site estimates, that would be a great car at a pretty good price! I have driven a Fusion SE and it was a fairly well engineered car, cornered ok and the interior felt pretty good. Would an SE/Hybrid be equivalent to a Prius III or a Prius IV? I don't know, I have only ridden in a III, I think. The Prius is an engineering marvel, but it doesn't feel like it is a ton of fun to drive. But I only rode in it, I didn't drive it. It is incredible how many low or no gas options are popping up now.

        i'll save you the suspense, i've driven a prius before and its fun to see all the gizmos light up and tell you whats going on with the vehicle. But acceleration is terrible muted to the point where I feel it would be a safety concern if i had to pass a truck on a highway. I'd prefer to get out of other vehicle's blind spot ASAP, in my current vehicle, I can do it in a few seconds, in a prius I can see it struggle for 10-15 seconds. I'm talking nyc highways too. I saw a prius on the I95 the other day too, my wife asked me what's wrong with that car (it was the slowest we'd seen in an hour of driving), i said nothing - it's a prius. I'd prefer the fusion/camry hybrids because they still look and kinda drive like normal cars vs prius.

      The ford marketers that package their options are pretty irritating. Getting a Titanium Focus with a manual trans is the same price as one with the auto trans. WTF? Getting a SE Focus with manual trans saves you $1100, but no price break on the Ti. Now I'm shopping for a Dart!

        Go ahead, Ford is going to be to cars as Apple is currently to phones/tablets. If you're seriously considering a Dart, then you dont care what you buy. Ford wants to sell quality and engineering/design value - and that doesnt come cheap. Chrysler in the future will be competing with the chinese brands that arrive on US soil. Ford is trying to grab sales from Toyota/VW/GM and the lower end lux brands.

          SNP, I'm willing to pay top dollar for a good car, that's why I was looking at the Focus Ti. It's pretty lame the buyers of other trim levels get $1100 off for the manual while Ti buyers get the shaft. Would you be ok with paying the same for a manual vs. auto? The rest of your reply is unrelated ramblings...blah blah blah...

        @miles Miles, I think that like many manufacturers, Ford have found that few consumers are seeking a manual transmission on up-market products. Accordingly, the cost of building a few 'special' low volume variations, obviously increases.

          Hi Marco, I see that point to some extent, but sometimes they go overboard. If you go to the Fusion configurator you'll see that if you want the $500 alloy wheels, you must spend $2000 on the package with leather seats. Some folks won't buy leather for any money, and it's a turn-off. I was considering a Focus ST, the base ST is the same price as a Ti with a few options. But to get the nice radio on the ST I needed to add the $4500 ST3 package which includes interior mood lighting and fancy headlights and leather and lots of other noise I don't want to have. I guess I'll cross the ST off my list too. I'd much rather drive a Focus, but Ford won't build the car I want without a few thousand $ of nonsense I would rather avoid. It's a bummer, because it's so unnecessary. Their marketing/feature-packaging choices may be good at maximizing profits, but there's no doubt they are alienating some folks...

      Are you absolutely certain the package doesn't have additional content on the Hybrid that isn't available on the non-hybrid?
