The Redline Report: 2017 Ford Fusion Sport

The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport is the pride of Ford's new lineup that will be released this coming year. It is equipped with a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 325 horsepower, making it the most powerful mainstream midsize sedan in the market. Another trim level allows for a V8 engine to sit under the hood that pulls 380 lb-ft of torque and replaces the front-wheel-drive train of the V6 with an all-wheel-drive system in order to handle the extra power.
