Like other brands, Ford changed the lug pattern on their models to accommodate engine upgrades. So many new drivers might be confused about their exact specifications.

But don’t worry! Below is all there is to know about the Ford Fusion lug pattern. As such, dismantling and reinstalling the wheels should not be difficult.

Bolt Pattern For Ford Fusion By Generation

Fusion models from 2013 all have the same lug pattern of 5×4.25 in or 5×108 mm, so there are 5 lug nuts forming a circle of 4.25 inches in diameter. Previous models will come with either a 4×4.25 or 5×4.5 bolt pattern.

5x4.25 bolt pattern

2002 – 2005

The first Fusions were released with two engines: diesel (1.4 or 1.6 TDCi) or petrol (1.25, 1.4, or 1.6i). However, all of these options shared the same lug pattern of 4×108 mm or 4×4.25″. In simple terms, there are 4 bolt holes on the bolt circle with a diameter of 4.45 inches.

2006 – 2012

Ford surprised the market with its 2005 launch when it added two new petrol engine options, the 2.3i and 3.0i V6, which produced 160 and 221 horsepower, respectively. This change resulted in a new wheel bolt pattern of 5×114.3 (or 5×4.5)

Note that the Facelift models still maintained the smaller engine types. This setting means you may bump into old-fashioned lug patterns (4×4.25″) during this period.

2013 – 2021 

As of 2013, Ford unified the lug circle on all outputs to 5×108 (or 5×4.25), even with 1.5i and 1.6i engines. The stud count has stayed consistent for the following eight years across two generations: 2013 – 2016 (Fusion II) and 2017 – 2021 (Fusion II Facelift) for all sales regions.

Unfortunately, Ford has decided to end this sedan line from 2022 onwards due to the dwindling sales records. The manufacturer also wanted to focus resources on more popular SUVs after great efforts to increase Fusion profits but failed.
