If you have been shopping the 2021 Toyota Camry in the North Little Rock, Arkansas, area, then you might be considering other models as well, like the 2020 Ford Fusion. Our auto dealership is home to the new Toyota Camry lineup, and we're confident that this top-selling Toyota mid-size sedan can take on any challenger with ease. But don't just take our word for it. Let's take a look at how the 2021 Toyota Camry and 2020 Ford Fusion stack up before you plan any test drives!
We will be pitting the 2021 Toyota Camry LE against the 2020 Ford Fusion S, or the base trims of each model, to ensure that this is a fair comparison. Why compare a 2021 model to a 2020 model? That's because Ford has discontinued the aging Fusion sedan after 2020, so that's the most recent year that we can compare to the new 2021 Camry. Let's take a look to see where these two sedans differ.
The 2021 Toyota Camry offers a wide array of advantages over the Fusion, chief among them is a surplus in power and performance. Camry drivers can enjoy 203 horsepower, even in the LE edition, thanks to Toyota's potent 2.5-liter Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine. The Ford Fusion sedan for sale only musters 175 hp from its 2.5-liter inline-four. However, horsepower isn't the only performance figure where the Camry outshines its competition. The Toyota sedan generates 184 pound-feet of torque; once again, the Ford comes up short with only 175 lb-ft of torque. Efficiency and a smooth drive are yours with the Camry, too, thanks to the sedan's slick eight-speed automatic transmission. Fusion occupants are in for a potentially less fuel-efficient drive due to the car's standard transmission that only offers six gears.
If you'd like a full suite of driver-assistance technologies and advanced safety features in your new sedan, you had better have the 2021 Toyota Camry on your shopping list. That's because the new Camry boasts an array of standard features that you won't find on much of its competition, including the 2020 Ford Fusion. For instance, only the Toyota sedan comes standard with adaptive cruise control, which allows you to select the desired following distance: the Camry will then adjust vehicle speed accordingly to keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. The NHTSA has awarded the Camry with a 5-star rollover crash rating and frontal crash rating, while the Ford Fusion earned just four stars in those categories. For utmost safety in a new sedan, the choice is clear!
