Saw My First '13 Fusion Today!

Recommended Posts

And it was beautiful! Really wasn't expecting to see one this early... Thought I'd have another month or so...

The dealer near my shop got one a couple weeks or so ago. I was supposed to go in and drive it, but I never made it in before Marilyn most recently gave out on me.

Not entirely digging it... Reminds me of another car, but I can't put my finger on it. :ph34r:

Looking forward to the 2.0 EcoBoost though. Would have been nice for them to :minigunner: the 2.5 since it makes 6hp less than the 1.6 EcoBoost. Put the 3.5 N/A in it as a sport model.

I read on one site that there is a forthcoming "sport" in the works, but I only read it on that one site so I don't know whether to believe it or not.

V6's and V8's are going the way of the Manual Transmission sadly. Hell, my Focus gets roughly the same power as my old Vulcan V6, yet twice the fuel economy. However, working on 4 bangers is so much easier than 6's or 8's. I loved working on my Escort or Contour. tons of engine bay space, easy to get to the spark plugs in all directions :P

Yeah but they just don't have that V6, or especially, V8 sound.

I really don't care in the slightest how many cylinders are underhood so long as the power output, economy, and overall performance meet my needs.

I have read that manual transmission is increasing in popularity/choice on the Focus or Fiestra...

There is no lack of power in the 2.0L ecoboost, 240hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, that is some serious power. Not to mention that peak torque is probably achieved under 3000rpm.

A sport model will probably be simialr to the MKZ which has the 3.7 V6 as a option, hopefully ford puts that motor in the fusion under a "Sport" trim. 305hp just like the mustang would be nice in a AWD version of the Fusion.

Here's to hoping, but it will likely be de-tuned to around 280ish HP. Can't be stealing the 'Stang's V6 thunder lol

You mean like the SHO did to the 5.0 in '89?

the Mondeo facelift looks good. But the chrome could forward less.
