Weight of 2015 Mustang vs Fusion

So

The Fusion will lose 800 lbs:
Ford Lightweight Concept Shaves 800 Pounds from Fusion Sedan €“ News €“ Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog

And the Mustang will gain 200-300 lbs:
Rumor: New 2015 Mustang Weight Gains 200-300 Pounds | 2015+ Mustang (s550) Forum News Blog – Mustang6G | The Ultimate 6th Generation Mustang (S550) Enthusiast Site


I guess it'd be a good idea to wait for Ford to do the same weight reduction to Mustang in the future model years. Otherwise, the soccer mom's Fusion will beat your Mustang at the traffic light.

or...oh yeah...THE S550 HASN'T BEEN WEIGHED YET and Steeda has since retracted that claim, saying they haven't weighed it either, and that was talking out of his ass, speculating on the weight of the S550 based on what he thought of the Terminator, which was a 1979 chassis with a retrofitted IRS. Credibility? Zero.

and, do you really want a 1.0L turbo? You can pick the block up with one hand. The coyote, OTOH, is about 430 fully dressed.

Great post csamsh.

The only other thing I have to add is why was this posted here? Go to the S550 section.

Plus the operative word in that Fusion article is concept.
