2019 Ford Fusion vs 2019 Toyota Camry

2019 Ford Fusion vs 2019 Toyota Camry

In the competitive market of midsize sedans, it seems that each brand claims to be the best. The Ford Fusion and the Toyota Camry both talk a big game, but when you sift through the specs, the Fusion is the model with the grit to back it up. See for yourself what makes the 2019 Ford Fusion rise to the top when stacked against the 2019 Toyota Camry.

With the recent emergence of active safety feature packages like Ford Co-Pilot360 and Toyota Safety Sense, vehicles like the 2019 Fusion and the 2019 Camry are helping to add security to the driving experience. With these packages, both models feature collision warning with standard automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, automatic high beams and automatic cruise control. However, the Fusion goes above and beyond, adding blind spot and cross traffic monitoring and automatic windshield wipers to its standard package. The Camry doesn’t offer blind spot and cross traffic monitoring until halfway up its trim lineup, while automatic windshield wipers are not offered at all.

Comparing the Engine Strength and Passenger and Cargo Space Specifications of the 2019 Ford Fusion Lineup and the 2019 Toyota Camry Lineup

Though both sedans feature a five-passenger capacity, how comfortably they seat those five passengers varies between the two. The Fusion’s cabin is notably roomier than the Camry’s, featuring 2.4 cubic feet more passenger space overall. This means Fusion passengers enjoy more shoulder and legroom from any seat. The 2019 Fusion also flaunts one of the largest trunks in its class, gifting drivers with 16.0 cubic feet of cargo space. The 2019 Camry’s scanty 14.1 cubic-foot cargo space falls among the worst in the class and leaves much to be desired. Your belongings deserve better.

If a capable engine is on your list of priorities, the Fusion is the clear winner for you. The 2019 Camry caps its engine lineup with an available 3.5-liter V6 engine on the XLE and XSE trim levels. Delivering 301 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine is a pretty attractive option. Then comes the Fusion’s top-end 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine with 325 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. With the Fusion’s top engine cranking out 24 more horsepower and 113 more lb.-ft. of torque, it’s no question who takes home the trophy. The 2019 Camry’s engine lineup is respectable, but it doesn’t hold a light to the Fusion.
