Canadian Driver Tests 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid
Dearborn, Michigan – We all know that a rolling stone gathers no moss; still, I was somewhat surprised to see that a rolling Ford can grow some leaves, at least virtually within its dash cluster.
More on that later, but suffice to say that it’s part of the Ford Fusion Hybrid, a 2010 model unveiled late last year at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and destined for showrooms early in 2009. I had the opportunity to take a short test-drive on city streets and highways in Ford’s first gasoline-electric sedan.
The entire Fusion line-up is overhauled for 2010, with new (and quite handsome) styling, better-quality interior materials, and most importantly, new and more fuel-efficient engines, six-speed automatic transmissions, and a Sport model with a 3.5-litre V6 under the hood. But the big news is the Fusion Hybrid, which company officials said will be the most fuel-efficient midsize sedan on the market when it reaches showrooms.
