Ford is determined to offer a new car lineup that uses less fuel without sacrificing performance. It is this commitment to environmental responsibility that has helped Ford become a “green” leader in the automotive industry. Below are a few reasons why Ford dealerships are the best place to go for a practical, fuel-efficient, and fun-to-drive vehicle.
Overall Fuel Economy Increases
Over the last five years, Ford’s entire lineup has seen strong increases in fuel economy. It’s Ford’s philosophy that every vehicle in its lineup (not just the hybrids and the small cars) should have the best fuel efficiency possible. Some of the technologies that contribute to the efficiency of Ford’s new vehicle lineup are greater aerodynamic efficiency, lighter frame construction, and more efficient engines.
EcoBoost Turbocharging Technology
Many new Ford cars, trucks, and SUVs can be equipped with an EcoBoost engine. These engines are lightweight, direct injected, and turbocharged to increase overall performance while decreasing fuel consumption. In a new Ford with an EcoBoost engine, you’ll enjoy torque-rich acceleration in addition to significant fuel savings every month.
Fuel-Efficient Hybrid and Plug-In Electric Models
Ford currently offers five different vehicles with a hybrid or plug-in hybrid engine. The Ford C-MAX is the best-selling hybrid utility vehicle, even outselling the Toyota Prius V in its first few months of sales. The Ford C-MAX Energi features best-in-class fuel efficiency (108 MPGe) and offers a total driving range of 620 miles.
Increased Access to Green Technology
Ford is ensuring that as many dealerships as possible carry hybrid and plug-in hybrid technology. Since as many as one in four new-car shoppers are considering plug-in hybrids these days, Ford believes that it’s important to make hybrid and plug-in hybrid technologies accessible all over the country.
