http://FutureFordofSacramento.com 888-577-0454 Does having a powerful engine mean you have to sacrifice economy? The answer is no, if you’re driving a Ford Fusion. The 2.5L Duratec I-4 engine generates 175 horsepower and 172 lb.-ft. of torque, while delivering impressive city and highway mpg. And imagine getting 41 miles per gallon and being able to travel more than 700 miles on a single tank of gas in city traffic. That’s the kind of mileage you can expect to get in a Fusion Hybrid.

 “We study injury trends in the field, and we know that traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for people from age 1 to 34,” said Dr. Steve Rouhana, Senior Technical Leader for Safety, Ford Research and Advanced Engineering. “We want to better understand how injuries to younger occupants may be different.”

Did you know that Ford performs extreme road tests to help design their vehicles to handle the worst road conditions in the world?

DEARBORN, Mich., March 30, 2011 – Ford engineers know that not all roads are created equal. Some are pockmarked with potholes. Others simply consist of merciless off-road-like tracks. Only a blessed few roads around the world are kind to the vehicles driving over them.

Engineers know that too many drivers speed over four-inch-deep potholes or take turns too fast on cobblestone roads.
