The 2014 Ford Fusion will hit the market with a new engine under its hood, and, as we already told you about two months ago, the new mill is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost.
With no specs released when the announcement was made, the Blue Oval just stopped by to reveal that the new powerplant will deliver 178 HP and 177 lb-ft of torque. This means a similar amount of power when compared to the 1.6-liter EcoBoost, but a little less torque (the 1.6 is rated at 184 lb-ft).

No other details have been unveiled, but we do know that the 1.5-liter EcoBoost will arrive with some of the innovative features introduced on the 1.0-liter engine, such as an integrated exhaust manifold.

Fuel economy figures have yet to be revealed as well, but Ford said it will more efficient that the 1.6-liter version, which returns 25 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. The company also pledged for lower CO2 emissions.
