[Original Post]An observant reader pointed us to the Ford build and price page for the new Fusion. We're mildly shocked that the S base model with manual transmission is $17,475. Move up to the SEL top of the line with 3.0 L V6 and you're at $21,705. I decked the SEL out with leather, sunroof, ABS and the kitchen sink and the highest price I reached was $26,205. But go play for yourself.
