OK I get that you like Mazda, but just to keep grounded in reality. The Ford Fusion is not based on the MazdaSpeed6, it's based on the 6 platform, with the Duratec 3.0. So there will not be 300 hp.

While All Wheel Drive may be an option on all of these vehicles in the future, initially they will be front wheel drive.

The Fusion is taking the place of the Taurus, and needs to apeal to a mass audience. Maybe the Zephyr will have more power, but the Fusion is a bread and butter car.

There are rumors and speculation that the Fusion will be warmed over by SVT, so maybe you can get closer to 300 hp then. For now it's 207 hp like the FiveHundred.
