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.

      Can someone explain how the titanium is justified? I checked off all the boxes and got a $38K midsize family sedan. How much more HP does the titanium give? Does anything compete with this?

        Because it's Ford. They are insanely arrogant (despite taking 5.9 billion of taxpayer dollars...http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2009/07/point-of-order-ford-has-taken-federal-money/) and they think their poo don't stink. Ford is the new Toyota. A lot of talk and no real substance. The products definately don't support the hype...

        well at $38k I'd much rather prefer to get a G37 but if you really want to say ford than I have no clue why you'd want to load up a fusion to almost $40k

      No manual on the titanium is the deal-breaker for me. I want the 2.0 ecoboost with AWD, all the luxury goodies and a stick. Build me that, Ford, and I'm sold. I love the styling of this car. They did it on the Focus titanium, which appears to be available (fully loaded, with all the options) with a 5-speed...Ford, are you listening?

        I agree with you on the manual. I want a nice luxury sport at ford prices! This car is sexy and i would love to compete with WRX's in terms of power. And the Focus ST comes with a 6 speed! Why Ford wouldnt allow a manual here with that same motor doesnt make sense!

        I also agree on the manual. I purchased my 07 Fusion with the manual and the transmission is actually what makes the car fun to drive. Hopefully the fact that Dodge is making manual transmissions available across all trim levels in the Dart (and hopefully future cars) will push Ford to do the same.

      Let's see, an Auston Martin costs $150K. And you're complaining that you can get a simular looking car for thirty grand? Sure it ain't no Auston but it does look good and I will certainly be testing one out.

        Unless they really screw this up, I can see it getting Car of the Year. Good engine choices, nice styling and it's suppose to be fairly roomy.

      LMAO. It's a POS Ford. So it will blow up in crashes just like every Ford (or any other UAW made American car) out there, the engine will last maybe 20k mles, it will be filled with a cheap plastic interior, and minivans wil outperform the best performing ersion of this car. As usual, Fix Or Repair Daily fails. Galant, Accord, Camry,Altima, an Legacy are the kings of the midsize class.

        Well, JD power initial quality study would disagree with you. I don't like American cars neither but this is the only american car I look forward to seeing in person. Ford seems to be doing well with their designs and quality control. I think they will do just fine. Galant is one of the most unreliable cars from the entire Mitsubishi, you seem to use only the brand perception to judge the reliability of all rice burners to be good, please go troll somewhere else.

      Where is my harpoon? This thing is just too fat, but not in a kind of chaming jolly way. The Dodge-style U Mad headlights make it look grumpy, like it just had some bad plankton.

        The new Fusion will be assembled both in America and Mexico, check the VIN number before you buy one if that's so important to you.

      Over $32K for the cheapest AWD. Yeah, right.

        @ALafya
        Exactly my concern when I saw AWD was on Titanium trim only. The Fusion looks a whole lot better than a Subaru Legacy but the Legacy is $7K cheaper and even the most expensive Legacy (GT or 3.6 R) top out where the AWD Fusion begins.
