2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid

The all-new 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is the latest Ford hybrid, offering gasoline, hybrid and plug-in models. With the sleek styling as well as innovative safety features and voice controlled functions, the Ford Fusion Hybrid is a force to be reckoned with in the sedan market.

A priority for drivers now and in the future has to be fuel economy. The Fusion delivers market leading fuel efficiency without compromising on design and the latest in technological driving features.

Models

The range of model choices include the S, SE and Titanium series; hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions; EcoBoost engines; plus a choice of manual or automatic six-speed transmission.

The EcoBoost engine comes in either 1.6 liter, for maximum fuel efficiency or the 2.0 liter performance options. The Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid is widely expected to break all records when it comes to fuel efficiency.

Added Features

A small camera mounted behind the rear-view mirror checks lane positioning, making sure the driver keeps within the lanes on the road. Should a tired driver drift too close to lane markings the Lane Keeping System can alert them by vibrating the steering wheel. The lane keeping aid can even apply pressure to the steering, bringing the car into a better lane position. The radar operated Adaptive Cruise Control detects slow or stationary vehicles ahead and can warn the driver and slow the car if it detects the danger of a collision.

This car can parallel park itself! Using sensors to seek out a suitable space the technology calculates and steers the vehicle to a perfect parking position. All the driver has to operate are the accelerator and brakes.

The Blind Spot Information System or BLIS does exactly what it says, detecting any possibly unseen vehicles in potential blind spots and giving warnings to the driver. This system can also alert the driver of oncoming traffic when backing out of a driveway with no clear view.

Overall, the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid deserves consideration from new car buyers looking for a sedan with maximum fuel efficiency, style and modern features.
