2020 Toyota Camry vs 2020 Ford Fusion
The Toyota Camry has been the gold standard for the midsize sedan class for quite some time. During the time the Camry platform has been available at dealerships like Toyota of Decatur, the vehicle has been continually improved to meet the needs of the day and thrive while other automakers have been suspending the production of their sedans. A comparison of the 2020 Toyota Camry vs. 2020 Ford Fusion is one of the last great battles in this class and one that the Camry is able to win. For the current model year, the Camry picks up more connectivity equipment as well as a new performance-focused model and, most importantly, all-wheel-drive. The 2020 Camry is able to outpace the 2020 Fusion in almost all of these areas, most notably in performance, available technology and fuel economy.

In terms of overall passenger space and comfort, the five people who can ride in the 2020 Toyota Camry or 2020 Ford Fusion will have approximately the same dimensions for front and rear legroom. Additionally, both vehicles have very similarly sized trunks – ranking among the largest in the class. It’s the level of standard connectivity equipment and services that really sets the two popular sedans apart. Every 2020 Toyota Camry available at the Toyota of Decatur showroom will have a smartphone-compatible infotainment equipped across the entire trim ladder. This will include access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications as well as Amazon Alexa and an available Wi-Fi hotspot. The 2020 Ford Fusion also offers many of these same connectivity features but that automaker’s information appears to say customers will need to choose a premium feature package to get them.
Performance Specs and Fuel Economy Scores
Buyers of the 2020 Toyota Camry will have two engine options to choose from. The standard powertrain is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that will produce 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The XSE model uses the same engine that is tuned differently, which will make 206 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Camry with this engine will be able to achieve nearly 30 miles per gallon in the city and almost 40 miles per gallon on the highway. A 3.5-liter, V-6 engine is also available that will make 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. These models will be able to produce more than 20 mpg in the city and above 30 mpg on the highway. Both Toyota engines are attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 2020 Ford Fusion offers three four-cylinder engine options that make 175 (2.5-L), 181 (turbo., 1.5-L) and 245 (turbo., 2.0-L) horsepower, respectively. None of these engines will be able to match the fuel-economy scores offered by the four-cylinder Camry engine option. Finally, Ford canceled the V-6 engine for the Fusion for the 2020 model year.
