Drive Wire: Ford Beefs Up The Fusion

Ford has finally decided to add some muscle to their popular Fusion sedan. The new Fusion will come with 325 horsepower and 380 foot pounds of torque. This is, frankly, delightful, especially because the new fusion sport will sticker at just over $34,000. That’s a seriously great performance deal, even if it only handles moderately well. That power will come from a 2.7 liter twin-turbo V-6, go through a six-speed auto and drive all four wheels. Will it drive like an Audi S4? Probably not, but it’s still a heck of a lot better than the original Fusion.
