Standard All-Wheel Drive and Power to Spare: The All-New Fusion V6 Sport

With engine output statistics of 380 pound-feet of torque and 325 horsepower for a sedan, you might think we were talking about a premium German model. In fact, we're referring to the latest addition to the Ford Fusion lineup. The 2.7-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 powered Ford Fusion V6 sport delivers German performance for much less cash.

"Since the newest-generation Fusion launched in 2012, midsize car buyers have been asking for a performance version," said Ford Fusion marketing manager, Wade Jackson in a recent press release. "It's not just Fusion buyers who want something hotter. Owners of other midsize sedans, along with our own dealers, ask repeatedly."

In addition power output numbers that exceed those from the likes of the BMW 535i and Audi A6 3.0T, Fusion V6 Sport also offers all-wheel drive as standard equipment, and an advanced computer-controlled suspension system that lessens the impact of potholes. The latter system uses high-resolution sensors that continuously scan road conditions. When a pothole is detected, dampers are adjusted to their stiffest settings, preventing the wheel from falling too far into the hole.

Consumers crave a car that’s much more distinctive inside and out," Jackson continued. “Cross-shoppers will be shocked by the bang for the buck our new Fusion Sport delivers.
