The highly anticipated 2013 Ford Fusion is ready to please a large array of consumers with its multiple engines: regular gas, hybrid and plug-in hybrid. Unfortunately, the plug-in hybrid, or Energi, won’t be available at this year’s launch as the hybrid model will.
Ford is expecting 2013 Fusion Hybrid to become a class-leader in the fuel efficiency department. Predictions for MPG are 47 in the city and 44 MPG on the highway. the new Fusion’s fuel economy stands to outperform those of both the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid and the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid by anywhere from 4-12 MPG.
The combined output from the new Fusion Hybrid’s 2-liter 4-cylinder engine and the electric motor will be around 180 horsepower, which isn’t shabby for such a large amount of MPG. Even more desirable is the voice-activated SYNC with MyFord connectivity with two customizable LCD screens in the dash. Prices for they new Fusion Hybrid have not been officially released yet, but experts expect it to start around $25K.
