It only makes sense. Even tho the Ford Fusion is related to the MKZ, the MKZ probably carries a good amount more weight and in a luxury car you need a nice torquie motor, so what better than a big 3.7 V6 engine!Interesting the MKZ will be sharing the same engines as the ford mustangs. I never knew that. WOw that explains a lot now. I always thought everything on the MKZ was based on the Ford Fusion.
As you'll see in the dyno graph below at 2440RPM it already makes 176 ft-lb of torque, perfect for a luxury sedan.
