2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid: It’s The Car To Get!

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

We all know that Ford is paving the way for hybrid cars it seems.  While I know that Toyota is the company that came up with them (pretty much right?), I think that Ford is definitely coming up with some pretty interesting things.  While personally, Ford is last on my list for cars, I think that the brand new 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is a car that deserves a third look … because yes, it is actually a car that I have done some research on, dismissed and now it is back!

First, let’s start with the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid’s look – it does not look like a regular Ford car and that is something that I love … I hate how Ford cars look usually, however, the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is definitely a brand new looks for Ford.  Another thing that I like is that it has about 43.1 miles per gallon, which is something that I definitely look for.

If you are looking for a car – the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is going to be it … seriously.

2010 Ford Flex with EcoBoost: It’s The Best!

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

If there is one thing that I know about the auto world right now, it is the fact that Ford is actually on top right now.  While they might not be on top in the sales department, they are on top in the meaning that they are not the ones that went under and filed for bankruptcy at all and they keep improving and coming out with damn affordable and damn sexy cars!  Take the 2010 Ford Flex with EcoBoost.  This crossover car is definitely going to be one of the best as soon as it comes out.

The 2010 Ford Flex with EcoBoost is actually one of the very first Fords to get the Ecoboost power and it is going to have a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine.  It will be all-wheel drive and it is going be run about 16 to 22 miles per gallon on the gas front, which to me for a crossover vehicle that big is actually pretty cool.

Ford is switching up their style and that is something that I love … while I am not a fan of Ford, they are slowly but surely bringing me around!

If there is one thing that I have noticed about Ford, it is that their prices have gone way down.  Normally, for a sports car of the Mustang’s class, you are going to be shelling out at least thirty grand right?  Not anymore!  Nowadays, Ford has lowered their prices down and you can get the 2010 Mustang Base Coupe for just over twenty thousand dollars, which is a fantastic price for a sports car that looks great and feels fantastic.

Some of the 2010 Mustang Base Coupe’s specs include: 4,009 cc 4.0 liters V 6 front engine with 100.4 mm bore, 84.4 mm stroke, 9.7 compression ratio, overhead cam and two valves per cylinder 99N, 16.1 gallon main unleaded fuel tank 13.4 and finally, the power at a remarkable 157 kW, 210 HP SAE at 5,300 rpm; 240 ft lb, 325 Nm at 3,500 rpm.  All of that for just over twenty grand?  Remarkable price!
