2017 Ford Fusion Sport to Offer 2.7L Twin Turbo EcoBoost V6 and AWD
Ford Fusion has long been doing battle with the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry for a share of the mid-size sedan market. With the announcement of the 2017 Fusion Sport, Ford has obviously upped their game. The new Fusion Sport will be equipped with a 2.7L EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 sending 325 horsepower and 350 pound feet of torque to the pavement via all wheel drive. That’s nearly 50 horsepower and 100 pound feet more torque than its competitors.
Fusion V6 Sport adds continuously controlled damping for real-time suspension tuning, allowing it to adapt to a wide variety of deriving conditions. The system features pothole detection technology that instantly softens the shock absorbers to greatly reduce the impact transmitted to occupants. Power and handling are complemented by unique, performance-inspired styling inside and out. The look is sporty with an aggressive exterior with deeper air intakes and a gloss black-finish mesh grille, 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler and dual twin exhaust outlets.
Besides the massive boost in performance, the 2017 Fusion Sport will be available with a host of next level gadgetry including Pedestrian Detection Technology, Lane-Keeping Assist, Hands-Free Parking and the all new SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system. SYNC 3 features faster performance, more conversational voice recognition, a more intuitive smartphone-like touch screen and easier-to-understand graphical interface. SYNC Connect, optional with SYNC 3, enables owners to remotely start their car, schedule future starts, or lock and unlock the car using their smartphone.
