Got to love how it looks from the front in blue, sort of reminds me of the Focus RS. Don't be surprised if you see some enthusiast looking back often enough to make sure.

Now they just need to hurry up and bring out an SHO version that looks like this:

Love the pics and the color.

But the article leaves much to be desired. 0-60 in 6.5 sec?!?! Yikes.
Yeah that is most certainly not right.... there's absolutely no way.

It will be 0-60 in 5.0 or less! If the Taurus SHO can hit 5.1.... for sure this will do better.

I tried to take a stab at the potential performance of the 2017 Sport in another thread. See the quote below.

I went digging through some magazine tests to get a frame of reference to allow for a “guesstimate” of the performance of the 2017 Fusion Sport.

I compared the performance of the 2015 2.0 Ecoboost Edge AWD to the 2015 2.7 Ecoboost Edge Sport as tested by the same publication.

The performance increases were as follows (from 2.0 to 2.7):

  • 0-60: -2.7 sec
  • 0-100: -8.5 sec
  • 5-60: -2.8 sec
  • 30-50: -1.2 sec
  • 50-70: - 1.4 sec
  • ¼ Mile: -2.0 sec / + 12 MPH

I then did the same comparison between the 2014 2.0 Ecoboost Fusion AWD and the 2015 2.0 Ecoboost Edge AWD using the same publication.

One caveat here: The 2.0 Ecoboost in the Edge is the updated version that uses the new twin-scroll turbocharger. It features new pistons that provide a higher, more efficient compression ratio (going from 9.3:1 to 9.7:1); a newly designed, integrated exhaust manifold optimized for the twin-scroll setup; a new active oil control system; an active wastegate to more accurately manage boost and torque levels; and a new, high-pressure direct-injection fuel system for more precise fuel delivery.

If the Fusion was also fitted with the new twin-scroll 2.0L the performance differences may have been even greater in the lighter Fusion’s favor.



  • 0-60: -1.0 sec
  • 0-100: -2.2 sec
  • 5-60: -1.3 sec
  • 30-50: -0.6 sec
  • 50-70: - 0.4 sec
  • ¼ Mile: -0.5 sec / + 2 MPH

Based on the above data I would estimate the performance for the stock ’17 Fusion Sport as follows:

0-60: high 4 second range
¼ Mile: mid to high 13’s @ 100+ mph
