2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid Returns 47 Combined MPG

Ford has pioneered fuel economy-inspired innovations over the past few years, most notably EcoBoost and hybrid technology.  For the 2013 model year, Ford is putting its Hybrid technology on full display in the Ford Fusion.

 The 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in Hybrid is able to return a combined 47 mpg when functioning as a hybrid and an incredible 100 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) when being driven in electric mode.

“The new Fusion is part of our plan to offer vehicles with the very best quality, fuel efficiency, safety, smart design and value,” says Alan Mulally, Ford president and CEO. “We are absolutely committed to class-leading fuel efficiency as a reason to buy Ford vehicles, with customers able to choose the fuel-efficient powertrain that best fits their lifestyle.”

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid dominates its closest competitor, the Toyota Camry Hybrid, in terms of fuel efficiency.  In fact, the Fusion Hybrid beats the Camry Hybrid by 8 mpg highway and 4 mpg city.

The 2013 Fusion Hybrid also flaunts additional innovations for drivers to increase fuel economy.  Ford’s SmartGauge with EcoGuide insures that the driver is operating with optimal fuel economy, and the ECO Cruise delivers the greenest cruise control possible.

The 2013 Fusion joins many other sedans in offering a 4-cylinder engine only. Other updates to the sedan include new styling that resembles a four door coupe more than a standard sedan and a multitude of standard and optional features. These features include the latest version of SYNC with MyFord Touch, BLIS, SOS post-crash alert, and an optional lane-keeping aid.  A hybrid model of the Fusion will also be available, with a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine, based on the 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbo.
