Default 2013 Ford Fusion to Get Tiny 1.6L 4-Cylinder Engine




Quote:
Ford is taking its engine downsizing strategy to extremes with the next-generation Fusion mid-size sedan, with plans to offer a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder version. That may sound unbelievably small, but the engine will get Fordís EcoBoost technology with turbocharging and direct-injection and should deliver roughly 180-hp.

In addition, Ford will also offer a version of the 2.0-liter Ecoboost 4-cylinder that has just been introduced under the hood of the 2012 Explorer and 2012 Edge. In the Edge, that engine makes 247-hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, more than enough for any mid-size sedan.

In order to get the most fuel economy from this new model (which is expected to grow slightly from the current Fusion), the 2013 car is expected to get start-stop technology as well as grille shutters that close at speed to help improve aerodynamics.

Look for the 2013 Ford Fusion to bow at the Detroit Auto Show this January.

So (start stop technology) is this what golf carts use?

That depends on the weight of the car, and the torque of the 1.6T.

If the car is light, and the engine is torquey, maybe.

If the car is heavy and the engine is peaky toward a horsepower goal, it might not be so good.

Damn this is bad news for my hopes of a 3.5 EcoBoost Fusion GT that they teased a few years back. I think I will wait and see if they will make a more aggressive looking Evo-like Taurus SHO.

The 900cc 2-cylinder Fiat 500 laughs at Ford's ginormous engine...

My fiance's 1996 Sentra has a 1.6 liter motor. It's as basic as can be. Fuel injection, distributor, and a 4eat. It's not fast, but it's just fine with two people in the car. And it gets 35-40 mpg all day long. Why are people so worried about small engines. Most people really don't use all of this horse power and displacement they are paying for.

It would replace the current 2.5L 'Duratec' 4 cylinder base motor, currently rated at 175 hp / 172tq and EPA mileage of 22 city / 32 hgwy MPG.

Compare this to the current midsize sedan market darlings Hyundai Sonata / Kia Optima which rock a 2.4L non turbo, but direct injected 4cyl rated at 200hp / 186tq, and EPA estimated 24 city / 34 hgwy MPG.

Oh and the Fusion also is available with AWD; SO if the 2.0L 250hp/270tq Ecoboost replaces the two V6's in the Fusion lineup (since Hyundai/Kia are taking a NO V6 stance), then the Fusion is about to get really interesting.
