The Ford Fusion Sport Is Giving You 30 Extra Reasons Not To Buy A German Car

Update

Ford says it is launching an "all-out assault" on German sport sedans.

It is no secret that we are excited for the upcoming Ford Fusion Sport. With all of the hype surrounding the Focus RS, we don't think that the Fusion Sport is getting the attention that it deserves. It will come with a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 with 325 horsepower and AWD, so performance won't be an issue. The car is set to arrive in dealerships in the late summer, and now Ford has sent us some extra details about the car that makes it even better. As it turns out, the car won't come with 350 lb-ft of torque.

It will actually come with 380 lb-ft. Not only is this number much higher than a V6 Toyota Camry or Honda Accord, it is higher than many German luxury sedans. Ford is clearly confident in its new Fusion Sport because it sent us a infographic that compares it to the Maserati Ghibli, Mercedes E400, Jaguar XF, Audi A6, BMW 535i, and even the Porsche 911 Carrera S. Amazingly, the Ford has more torque than all of those models. In the official press release Ford says that it "is adding serious EcoBoost® muscle to its Fusion sedan in an all-out assault on more expensive German sport sedans." Unfortunately, to get all of this power, you will have to fill your Fusion with 93 octane gasoline.

Ford is serious about making the Fusion Sport a rival for German luxury sedans. We don't know where this leaves the Fusion-based Lincoln MKZ which comes with a range-topping 3.0-liter engine with 400 horsepower. Do you think that the Fusion has what it takes to take on the Germans? Let us know in the comments.
