The 2013 Fusion is a 5-passenger, 3,400 lb car that gets 26 mpg combined city and highway driving. It's standard engine is a 2.5 I4 that produces 175 bhp and 175 lb·ft of torque.

In 1980 I had a 1970 Maverick two-door with a 200 CI engine and a three-speed automatic. The Maverick was styled with a long hood and a short trunk. That put the majority of the car's weight up front and if you slammed on the brakes on a wet road, the back end of the car would want to swing in a circle around the front axle.
