Does this mean we could be seeing a 6-speed manual in the Focus again soon?

A 6 th gear would be good for cruising the interstates at 75 mph.

With 175 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque, the four-cylinder Fusion is hardly a sports sedan

Looks just like a 2.3! but stroked?

Forget the SVT swap!

175hp/172 lb-ft torque - 2.5L 6speed would be a nice motor/tranny swap!!

Yup - that's what it is. The 2.5 is in the new Mazda3 as well.
