2017 Fusion Sport, 401A, Driver Assistance Package, 33k miles; 1999 Expedition 5.4 4x4
As reported before, the Zephyr is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, delivering 235 horsepower (175 kilowatts).
Quite alot of Lincoln fans here, and fans of the MKZ who I thought would appreciate this.
Seems the new Lincoln Zephyr is coming to China, and it looks absolutely stunning. Very jealous about us not getting it. But we also don't seem to be getting the spiritual successor to the Fusion the Evos (which is also going to China).
However, there is some good news. Seems the Fusion may not be dead yet with folks spying the alledged "Fusion Active". This model seems to be a hatchback sedan proportioned a little more larger than our Fusions.

While I think the potential Fusion looks great personally, it's definitely busier than our models and may not be everyone's cup of tea. It is also said to have the same long screen that stretches over the dashboard like in the Zephyr and Evos, which definitely will alienate some folks and which I'm not sure even a tech fan like me will love all the way.
Hopefully we can get some cool powertrains. If I had to guess the minimum will be the 2.5L NA Hybrid with the eCVT found on the Escape and the Maverick. This is actually a great powertrain and if paired with AWD will be a real killer if done right. We would also likely see the 2.0L EcoBoost imo, used in a similar application to the Maverick. What is more unclear is whether we could hope for a Sport model with the 2.7L EcoBoost. The Sport didn't do nearly as well as Ford wanted, but I hope they can realize that there were just a few little issues that kept people from buying such a great car. Issues that could be very easily alleviated and bring the Sport trim more success.
Let me know what you guys think!
