Is it confirmed that Fusion Sport will use the 6F55 transmission?

Will the gear ratios and final drive be the same as in Taurus SHO?

1st 4.484
2nd 2.872
3rd 1.842
4th 1.414
5th 1.000
6th 0.742
Reverse -2.882
Final drive 2.77:1

Thanks!

I think we could see a shorter first gear for the sake of better power delivery since we're working with less power. Easy to get power down within that first gear when you're working with 500 ponies.

If it's the same transmission, then they can't just change the first gear. They could give it a different final drive, but that'll affect all gears.

Found these on Car&Driver's website. Final drive is quite different...


Transmission
  • Drivetrain All Wheel Drive
  • Trans Order Code 44C
  • Trans Type 6
  • Trans Description Cont. Automatic w/OD
  • First Gear Ratio :)1) 4.58
  • Second Gear Ratio :)1) 2.96
  • Third Gear Ratio :)1) 1.91
  • Fourth Gear Ratio :)1) 1.45
  • Fifth Gear Ratio :)1) 1.00
  • Sixth Gear Ratio :)1) 0.75
  • Reverse Ratio :)1) 2.94
  • Final Drive Axle Ratio :)1) 3.36

But they show the exact same gearing ratios and final drive even for the 2.0 engine, so I'm not sure how accurate this is.
