The new hybrid car to roll out of Ford’s stable of product line is the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid. This would otherwise be a similar car as the Mercury Milan Hybrid but knowingly to be a more fuel efficient model. This car has been totally re-designed to give buyers more choice and to entice you to perhaps give this car a go. Up front, you will see the standard 3 bar chrome grille which comes with quite a number of Ford cars but it surely looks way more aggressive now that they have put in the 2 new fog lamps.
Under the hood, you will have to choose between the 2.5 inline 4 cylinder or the I-4 engines respectively. Should you opt for the 2.5 liter engine, it comes with 172 horsepowers and 175 lb-ft of torque. This will get you from zero to hundred in 9.5 seconds which comes with some new pistons, crankshaft, connectingrods and camshafts which essentially makes the car faster. The I-4 engine on the other hand is essentially more powerful than the Toyota Camry, its competitor in this segment as well as being more fuel-economical too.
Should you like a faster version, there are 2 more models to choose from, the 3.0 liter V6 engine which comes with 240 horsepowers that takes you from zero to hundred in merely 7.5 seconds and the top of the range Fusion Sport. This is the fastest engine you can get in this model, which I the 3.5 liter Duratec V6 engine which, is faster but is boosted with 240 horses as well.
The hybrid version of the Fusion is known to be one of the best gasoline-electric car of its class. This is because, it is cheaper and performs better than its closest rivals. Although the Prius is said to be cheaper, the Fusion drives better in terms of fuel economy and handling. From mileage to accessories provided, Ford has looked at Toyota’s flagship model and then offering better ones before rolling this one out into the market.
