Hello all. I was pleasantly surprised to see the hp and torque numbers of the new Fusion Sport which lead me to do some research and then come across this site. Cars have been a hobby of mine for a long time with previous vehicles being Mustangs, an M3, and a Grand Cherokee SRT8 to name a few. Hoping to gather some more information over the coming months and my next vehicle just might be a 2017 FS. There's going to be some good performance potential with this setup.

Looking forward to joining in the discussion.

Welcome to the forums ! That's definitely quite a line up of prior vehicles and then coming to an FS to be honest. What's the reason for going a more "humble" route I guess ?

Thank you! When I was younger (37 now) and life was simple with no strings, it was easy to have two doors and rear wheel drive or a 5,000 pound 425 hp Jeep that got 11 mpg. Then married life came along and practicality made some sense. A long commute pushed me to look for better mpg and into a 2012 Focus with the handling package four years ago. It has been one of the best cars I have owned, but I always wished it could have 300+hp and rear or all wheel drive. And despite my varied picks in vehicle brands, I have always been a Ford fan through and through and love the latest styling direction. So being able to throw a car seat or two in the back, get around in New England winter weather, and run sub 5 0-60 in comfort gets me very excited about this FS.

So based on the above wouldn't the Ford Focus RS be your ideal car?

Lol. Thanks! I agree. And it's kind of nice to blaze a different trail too. For so long, the chatter in the magazines was about how great the foreign cars were. I'm so happy to see how well the American cars perform these days with pretty good fit and finish to match and at prices that I feel provide some decent value.
