Hi FusionFanatic1951. To answer your questions in the best manner, I would recommend you go to the http://www.fordvehicles.com/cars/fusion/features/ site.

Be sure to click on all of the tabs ("Interior Features", "Power & Handling", "Exterior Features", "Safety&quot, or just click on the "View All" tab.

There you can scroll through all of the differences between the Fusion models. The list will show what is standard, optional and not available on each model. Much more efficient than hoping us bozos get it right (I am including myself in the bozo category).

Also, if you haven't done so already, pick up a Fusion brochure and any other literature they have at your local Ford Dealer.

Whichever you decide to go with, good luck!

PS - Personally, I would recommend you get the SEL. I have a Lincoln MKZ, but at the same time I ordered mine, I helped my neighbor order a Black on Black, Fusion SEL, on the X-Plan. It is a beautiful car.

SEL all the way. Spend the extra money it will be worth it. do the math and see how much extra per month it would be between the SE and the SEL. It's not that much. just take a look at the cars that the people have here on the website, they are mainly SEL. good luck, either way you go you will be getting a a GREAT car.

Default Re: SE vs. SEL

I like my SE because I really didn't want too much faux "chrome" like the piece on the trunk and the doors. To me, it doesn't accent the lines of the car. This is especially true since I have a black Fusion. If mine were white, I think the SEL would do the trick with the more accented pieces.

Obviously, I'm not speaking about the other upgrades between the versions, just these in particular.
