Last month I attended the Ford 2014 Model Year, where I felt very out of place with colleagues (can you call them colleagues if you don’t get paid?) from the big car publications and also felt quite at home with my cronies from Internet obscurity.

While consumers are snapping cars equipped with these engines up, the oft-skeptical Consumer Reports has reported that these turbo engines are failing to deliver the fuel economy and performance they promise.

This time it is Ford which is facing the wrath of angry car buyers, spearheaded by a buyer out of California who wants the Blue Oval to reimburse him for his purchase while ceasing sales tactics highlighting the 2013 Ford Fusion and C-Max Hybrid’s 47 mpg rating.
There’s a bit of trouble in paradise over the real-world fuel economy of the Ford C-Max Hybrid and 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, which are delivering less-than-expected mpg numbers for many consumers.
Nope, it’s not the Tesla Model S, lauded as CAR of the year (not just green) by everyone from Motor Trend to…many more. The award for Green Car of the Year came with a few caveats-primarily sales volume. Green Car Journal Editor Ron Cogan was adamant that this award be given to the car likely to get the most wheels to the ground. Sales volume matters a lot when determining which car will have the most significant impact in reducing CO2.
Marching forward with its plans to launch a slew of plug-in hybrid vehicles this year, Ford has finally put a price and details to the much-anticipated 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid.
