From the mid-1990s until the last few years, the midsize sedan market has been dominated by Japanese auto manufacturers and for a while, it looked like the Americans were going to be displaced entirely. Fueled by Yankee ingenuity in the face of adversity, Ford has brought a strong contender back to this segment with the Ford Fusion and they did not just come to play - they came to win.
K&N Air Intake under the hood of Ford Fusion
The 2013 to 2016 Ford Fusion gets a complete overhaul from 2012 and the results are quite impressive. Along with numerous technological upgrades and more space inside the cabin, the base engine, a 2.5 liter four cylinder, produces a stout 175 horsepower while still offering an estimated 34 miles per gallon on the freeway. Now, owners of the 2013 Ford Fusion with 2.5 liter engine can have a guaranteed increase in horsepower and performance with K&N's 69-3533TTK Typhoon performance air intake system.
K&N Air Intake System for Ford Fusion
The 69-3533TTK performance air intake system is precision engineered to fit the 2013 to 2016 Ford Fusion 2.5 liter. It comes with a mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube to help streamline airflow into the engine and a heat shield to protect incoming air from radiant heat under the hood. The intake tube is powder-coated black for a sleek look, and this specific air intake system utilizes a venturi inside the tube to straighten the airflow across the mass air flow (MAF) sensor for proper readings. The RC-3950 air filter on the end of the 69-3533TTK air intake system is oversized to help reduce restriction but without sacrificing filtration efficiency. The air filter is also washable and reusable and can go for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings depending on driving conditions.
