4 With 40 ... a First From Ford!
June 2, 2011 — With a constant eye toward advancing fuel economy as a top priority to benefit the consumer, Ford now occupies an exclusive perch in the automotive industry. With the release of the redesigned 2012 Ford Focus, Ford now offers four vehicles that have certified EPA ratings of 40 mpg or higher. No other full-line automaker can make that claim. Fuel economy has been one of Ford’s desired targets companywide for several years.
With Ford’s exciting and efficient hybrid vehicles leading the way, a new wave of powerful, refined gasoline engines is reasserting Ford’s leadership position. A perfect example is the direct-injected, turbocharged EcoBoost engines that enhance average fuel economy and can be applied to everything from small cars to large trucks. EcoBoost engines deliver fuel economy gains of up to 20 percent and reduce carbon emissions up to 15 percent compared with larger, less-efficient engines.
The Fabulous Four are:
- The 2012 Focus. Features include a six-speed Power Shift Automatic Transmission, variable Cam Timing, and new electronic Power Assist Steering.
- The 2011 Fusion Hybrid. Features include Flex Fuel Capacity, impressive power with great economy, and a reverse sensing system.
- The 2011 Fiesta. Features include fuel efficient technology, Dynamic ride and handling, and seven standard air bags.
- The 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. Features include best-in-class horsepower, most fuel-efficient luxury sedan in America, and more than 700 city miles on a tank of gas.
