Ford Fusion ST

An ST variant of the Ford Fusion should be sold in both America and Europe. It should feature components from the 2015 Ford Mustang such as suspension, brakes, etc. Engine options should include either an EcoBoost 2.3L 4-banger, a 3.7L V6 (from Mustang), or if you really want to go all out, the EcoBoost 3.5L V6. All-wheel drive should be the drivetrain of choice, and there must be a manual available (manual stick, not flappy paddles). Recaro seats should also be standard, for a more sporty look.

I would love a Fusion ST option with 2.3-L Ecoboost; awd would be a great addition. I have been quite pleased with my Focus ST, so if Ford were to hit the trifecta of Fusion ST awd in a Wagon body style for the United States, I would certainly reach for my checkbook. Given that the German "sporty" brands no longer sell their wagons in the United States with drivetrains (powerful engine + manual transmission), I would find it amusing to be able to get such a beast from Ford when Bmw and Audi no longer provide such cars.

Call me when I can order a Fusion Titanium ST with an EcoBoost 3.5 Liter V6 and all-wheel drive. Make my day with a "black-out" package (no chrome or blackened chrome), in dark blue or british racing green with Mocha dark brown leather.

I love the idea. Put the suspension goodies from the Focus St, a set of Recaros that are a little bit wider in the hip-area, some 19" sport that are light with some summer only tires, Awd, and either the 6 speed that is already offered or the updated 6-speed auto with paddles that they are putting in the 15' Mustang. Priced around $27,000 for an entry level I'd buy one in a heart beat.

Yes! The two-point-three ecoboost should be a pretty easy engineering job for Ford and it would give the Fusion some very respectable kick. But what would be Nirvana for me would be an Awd Fusion ST sportwagon.  I just sold off my Honda and would like to return to the Ford Stable I've owned Fords for 20 years prior to that and I'm still a fan but I'm getting sick of me too Suv/Cuvs. I would love something a bit more adult that still has some cojones like a all-weather Sportwagen but in the US right now my choice seem to be limited to German makes.  Ford used to be the wagon king. Time to give us a modern interpretation of that.

I would like to see an ST as an option. In addition to the afore mentioned power upgrades, updated styling with more aggressive front and rear fascia's/rockers would be desired. Obviously an updated wheel and time package as well. 
It would be a good extension to this vehicle line.   It's something I would consider buying for sure.

Absolutely! I have been an Svt driver for 13 years, and I have no intention giving up performance in a new car purchase. The only thing keeping me out of a Fusion is the lack of an Svt/ST version. I’ve never owned anything other than a Ford. I don’t want to switch brands to get the performance sedan (I would consider an Svt/ST Estate) I really want. As for now, I’ll just stay in my 2000 Svt Contour.

The Fusion equipped with awd, and true manual, or at worst a good paddle shift auto, paired with the Ecoboost 3.5l would be fantastic.

I'd have my preorder in the day it was announced. It would decimate cars like the Audi S4, and light up any thing in its segment.

It would be an icon of a car.
