Motor Trend Impressed With The 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport

Sponsored

Recently, Motor Trend had the occasion to test out the new, 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport – the top-tier, 325-horsepower, all-wheel-drive version of Ford’s popular mid-size sedan. From the sounds of things, the staff was quite impressed.

And really, why shouldn’t they be? The Ford Fusion V6 Sport one of the quickest mid-size sedans Motor Trend┬áhas tested, capable of sprinting to 60 mph from rest in just 5.3 seconds. It also keeps plenty of traction, thanks to its standard “Intelligent All-Wheel Drive,” and handles with the poise afforded by its computerized damper-control system. Only a 6-speed automatic transmission is available on this model (sadly), but wheel-mounted paddle shifters give the driver a means of control – even if MT found downshifts to be a tad hesitant.

The 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport also comes standard with acoustic glass and extra sound-deadening measures, so that even while it’s all noise and fury on the outside, the cabin is an isolated, low-volume cocoon of the sort that BMW makes. Not that the Sport-trim Ford Fusion is a German luxury sedan by any stretch; the mediocre mix of interior materials never lets one forget that. But for a car costing thousands less, the Fusion V6 Sport’s tranquil interior is a pleasant surprise.
