Ford is Planning a 340 Horsepower Fusion GT…An Affordable Audi S4

According to Motor Trend, Ford is working on a Fusion GT that will be released in late 2009 or early 2010.

The Fusion GT will be the fourth model to receive the new Ecoboost direct injection and turbo boosted engine. The Fusion GT follows the Lincoln MKS, MKR (Lincoln’s version of the Flex) and the Ford Flex. The Fusion GT will be powered by a 340 horsepower 3.5L V6. To combat torque steer the engine will be mated to a Haldex part-time AWD differential. Ford’s goal is to make an “affordable” Audi S4.

Ford is planning other Ecoboost models in the future including a four-cylinder Ecoboost in the Fusion and Focus in 2010 and a Ecoboost V6 in a new small pickup currently named the F100.
