Fusion SHO/ST

The incoming 2013 Fusion looks amazing but I think it could use some more attention in the powertrain department. A ST model could be equipped with turbocharged 2.5l I-4 which is already the base model engine. This level of performance would most directly compete with the 274hp Sonata and Optima. A SHO model equipped with the 3.5l ecoboost (and upgraded with Variable Valve Timing) could easily be in the 400+hp range and compete with Audi S4, BMW M3 and the new Cadillac ATS-V. Fusion is the new flagship car for Ford, it will already have outstanding fuel economy, so why not make a Fusion performance model a force to be reckoned with?

yes SHO ST Version of this platform AWD is the key
Monroe W 11/19/2012
Agreed! Only 240hp from the 2.0 EcoBoost just doesn't cut it.

I would absolutely buy a 350+ hp AWD Fusion. In fact I am waiting for it to happen as I love the car but feel it is underpowered in the 2.0L Ecoboost trim.

Make an ST version of the 2013 Fusion.

SVT fusion please, please, please

Come on Ford let the SVT team put out a Fusion SVT. I'm ready for a new Fusion but I want performance.

If you want it in 2-door, why wouldn't you just buy a Mustang? For the original idea, I've heard rumor of a 2.3 Ecoboost. That could easily crest 300 ponies, and I think that would be sufficient for a Fusion ST. Going all ecoboost V6 on it would seem like it would be an engineering nightmare for a 4-cyl only car.
