After debuting the 2010 Fusion at the LA Auto Show this week, Ford has just launched a new micro-site for the Fusion that finally includes pricing information. The base Fusion S starts at $19,270 with the four cylinder engine and 6-speed manual gearbox. The new Fusion Hybrid however, is nearly 42 percent more, starting at $27,290, a price point that includes the SmartGauge instrument cluster, satellite radio, 17" wheels and electronic stability control. For comparison, the Camry Hybrid is $26,150, but that doesn't include $450 for the upgraded audio with satellite radio. It also doesn't include anything quite like the SmartGauge which buyers will have put their own value on. Where the Fusion really jumps ahead of the Camry is fuel economy. The Ford's city fuel economy will now be at least 39 mpg, 6 mpg more than the Toyota. The Fusions should be on sale early in the new year.
