Even with St. Patrick’s Day behind us, you can still go green this month. How? By getting a “green” Ford vehicle that’s both fuel efficient and eco friendly. We have a plethora of options at Karl Klement Ford that can help keep the celebration going for years to come
The Ford Fusion Hybrid is one of the most efficient sedans you can find. It optimizes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery. The gasoline-electric hybrid gets a whopping 41 mpg hwy as a maximum. It selects which mode of power is best and switches seamlessly from the gasoline-powered engine to the electric motor to be sure you are driving as efficiently as possible. Unlike a plug-in hybrid, the Ford Fusion charges its battery while the engine is running and stopping, so you never have to worry about charging it.
Another green option? The Ford EcoSport. The spacious crossover SUV gives an eco-friendly option of using EcoBoost® technology in its engine. The EcoBoost® powertrain also utilizes auto start-stop technology that automatically shuts down and restarts the engine to reduce fuel consumption. This also greatly reduces the amount of time your engine spends idling, which helps reduce emissions too. It still has the power you need out an SUV with 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque. At a maximum, the EcoSport boasts 29 mpg hwy.
