its about the same as your Oldsmobile (assuming u have the 3.1 engine), but would feel better due to the low rpm torque.
With a little motor like that yeah. And yeah its a 3.1 (though the ecotech could kill it) but I cant imagine how much more work it has to do moving the heavy fusion body around. I feel like it would spit the crank out the oil pan lol. I feel like a 2.5l would be better for both the car and the truck.
