The Ford Fusion Hybrid will be back for the 2013 model year and along with its redesign, the green car is also setting impressive standards for fuel efficiency. The hybrid model will return 47 MPG city and highway, giving it a combined fuel economy rating of 47 MPG.
This rating trumps the majority of the Fusion’s competitors as well as the outgoing model thanks to a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter I-4 engine, a 118-horsepower electric motor, and lithium ion battery pack. Ford’s other hybrid model, the all-new 2013 C-Max, has also received a fuel economy rating of 47/47/47 MPG.
Non-hybrid models of the 2013 Fusion also received impressive fuel economy ratings of up to 22 city/34 highway MPG for the 2.5-lier I-4 engine and up to 25 city/35 highway MPG with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine. The model will be hitting showrooms this fall.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently named the 2013 Ford Escape a “Top Safety Pick”. The redesigned model boasts several safety features that helped it earn the IIHS’ seal of approval.
The 2013 Escape earned top scores in each of the IIHS’s primary categories: frontal, side, and rear impact, as well as of the subcategories it was tested in. Improving from the previous Escape, the 2013 earned an excellent strength-to-weight ratio of 5.03 in the IIHS roof strength test.
A slew of technological features have helped further increase safety in the 2013 Ford Escape. Those features include: active park assist to aid in parallel parking, intelligent access with push-button start, BLIS (Blind-Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, and a hands-free liftgate.
The 2013 Ford Escape is also equipped with SYNC with MyFord Touch which allows the driver to control just about everything in the vehicle with just the sound of their voice. From making phone calls and selecting music to controlling the climate of the vehicle, this Escape allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.

Ford has redesigned the Ford Fiesta and will debut the brand new 2014 model soon, but before we get to see the car in real life, Ford is taking us on a video tour of the new design. The Fiesta was on display at a special event in Amsterdam, where Ford Social spent a few minutes talking to Stefan Lamm, Director of Exterior Styling, to hear all about the new look.
