When I watched that I assumed they were testing the new transmission. There was a new MKX there but they didn't mention it.

Re: What engine is Ford testing??

Considering all the vehicles shown in the video have 1 thing in common (3.5EB) my guess is that they are testing the second gen 3.5EB.

Re: What engine is Ford testing??

Also - anyone catch the stretched rear end of that black Fusion? - looks like prototype of the next gen Taurus/MKS that we have seen testing in the past.

haven't gotten to their site yet but
just watched the video & from the last part
about the 3 (THREE) intakes in the big-booty-Fusion...
...a NEW 1.5~ 3-cylinder!!! is my guess
= 200-275hp

an engineer had said quite some time ago that a half liter PER CYLINDER was optimal - both power & emissions

otherwise
it seems to me most of those vehicles (SHO,S,T,Flex,chassis-cab,F-150) would be testing the new 3.5EB
= 425-600hp** over 600 in GT end of video
(not sure about the MKX)...

...very much agree with Adam
