SEMA 2013: Ford Fusion Gets 400 Horsepower Courtesy Of Full-Race Motorsports0
If Ford’s current vehicle lineup is missing anything, it’s a performance-oriented midsize sedan. Having recognized the need for such a vehicle (probably), Full-Race Motorports has delivered a tuned midsize Fusion sedan to the 2013 SEMA show.
Boasting 400 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to a BorgWarner turbocharger and accompanying powertrain upgrades such as a cat-back exhaust and cold air intake, this Fusion most definitely has enough motivation to satisfy most power requirements in the segment. Accompanying its powerful powertrain are eye-catching design elements thanks to a body kit.
On the inside, the hotted-up Fusion features a custom leather interior from Katzskin as well as a seven-inch touchscreen tablet built right into the dash running Google’s Android operating system with the ability to create a rolling Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Motrolix Take
We’re assuming that it’s Ford’s 2.0 liter EcoBoost engine that serves as the basis for the 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque found in the engine bay. And for the sake of drivability, we hope all that power is routed to all four wheels, rather than the two front ones. On a related note, we’d rather use Ford’s MyFord Touch infotainment system and its built-in Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, rather than an aftermarket solution seen here… but that’s just us.
