Fusion ST Engine

 

It's all but assured that the Fusion ST will use an EcoBoost engine - most likely the 2.3L that's found in the Lincoln MKC and Ford Mustang.  The 2.3L utilizes a single turbo.

 

While the 3.5L EcoBoost is probably too much for the Fusion - in terms of necessity, an interesting alternative would be the 2.7L Ecoboost found currently in the Ford F150. Although only marginally larger in size than the 2.3L EB, the 2.7L engine uses two turbo chargers - hmmmmm. 

 

Of course, there's the difference of weight to consider though.  The 2.3L is a four-cylinder while the 2.7L is a heavier, V6.

 

What are your thoughts?

I picture the 2.3 in 315 hp or higher tune.

I see that the 2.7 twin turbo is scheduled for use in the Edge, rated at 315 HP.  I would be happy with that.  I do see more upside power available with the increased displacement.  I also see advantages of lighter weight using the 2.3 with a similar power rating (as used in the Mustang).

That would be the engine that I suspect would power the Fusion ST

The only thing about that 2.7 EB is that it's a V6, so it has extra weight.  That might be overlooked by its performance advantage though.  It's gotta either be the 2.3 EB or the 2.7 EB.  

 

I wonder what Ford is thinking - oh to be a fly on the wall at Ford Performance!  :drool:

hmmmmm

 

The Mustang EcoBoost 2.3L weighs about 3,500 lbs.

http://www.ford.com/...ons/capacities/

 

The Lincoln MKC EcoBoost 2.3L (FWD) weighs about 3,800 lbs.

http://www.lincoln.c...tions/view-all/

 

The Ford Fusion (not Energi or Hybrid) weighs 3,427 lbs

http://www.ford.com/...ons/capacities/

 

Weight Overview

Mustang: 3,500 lbs.

MKC: 3,800 lbs.

Fusion: 3,427 lbs.

 

The Ford Fusion actually weighs LESS than the MKC 2.3 EB and the Mustang 2.3 EB, so I really can see the Fusion ST using the 2.3L EcoBoost engine without a problem.

 

I can't see the Fusion ST being offered with either a 2.3L or 2.7L - it will be one or the other.

 

The 2.3L EB is totally adequate for a Fusion ST unless Ford really wants to build a screamer!

It should be noted that the 2.3 Ecoboost in the MKC is detuned to 280 HP. 

 

A 2.3 Ecoboost still has a lot of power potential.  It is lighter.  It is less expensive to build.

And they've moved production of the 2.3L EcoBoost to Ohio ;)

The 2.0 EcoBoost in my Fusion has been great.  A friend of mine has been modding his with really great results too and you can really feel the added power just with the tune alone!

 

I can't image how much faster Ford is going to make the Fusion ST version.  I don't think that they'll need a V6 as the 2.0 is so easily modded.

I think the 2.7L would give Ford more tuning room to tailor economy/power to the chassis.  The 2.3L is pretty balls to the wall in RS tune.  And Ford doesn't have to worry too much about fleet average fuel economy due to the small RS production run.

 

On an ST Fusion, mileage would be a bigger concern, as would longevity.

 

The 2.7L would be amazing in a Fusion ST/RS.

I am still waiting for ANY news surrounding the Fusion ST.  I like the community surrounding the Focus ST, but its a little small for me.  I have a Fusion EB and it's close to perfect, it just needs that ST touch.

Ironically, my rental car last week was a new Edge Sport with the 2.7 ecoboost engine.  That engine is a screamer in the Edge, and I would love to have one in a Fusion. 

 

When i went online to check the specs, it is rated at 325 hp and some ungodly torque spec. 

 

While checking out the specs, the Edge Sport only comes with this engine.  The Edge Limited has several engine options including the 2.7 ecoboost AND the 3.5 ecoboost.  What's up with that?  More power available for the Limited than the Sport?  Something got sideways here.
