Fusion twin-turbo V6 binned

Ford Australia has decided against bringing an all-wheel-drive, 242kW/475Nm twin-turbo V6 powered version of the Ford Fusion Down Under. The local Ford arm decided against bringing the spiritual successor to the XR6 Falcon to Oz because of what it predicts is a lack of interest from consumers.

“[Falcon fans] may have an interest, but at the same time we’re looking at our line-up and making sure the complexity isn’t too much,” Ford Australia president and CEO Graeme Whickman said.
