Luxetips Automobiles! 2014 Ford Fusion Energi! Fuel Efficient and Luxe:  Miles and Miles Per Gallon!

Hello Divas!

Sometimes you just have to let go and see what happens.  It always turns out just right!

The good folks at Ford gave me the opportunity to test drive the new Ford Fusion Energi on my road trip to the Essence Music Festival.

The 2014 Ford Fusion Energi EXCEEDED all of my expectations.  First we can just start with the color:  Ford calls it: Ice Storm. Very appropriate.  So HOT! This color gets a lot of attention.

Also I was floored by the interior with the “off white butta” and I mean “butta leather seats.”  They were so comfy!  Also the interior had so much space!  Everyone was comfortable.

But the one thing that the Ford Fusion Energi has that is simply AMAZING is fuel efficiency! The Ford Fusion Energi is a hybrid vehicle that runs on regular unleaded gas and electric energy.  We drove 500 miles to New Orleans, LA for the Essence Festival and we only had to spend $40 on gas coming and going. Not kidding.  It only takes $40 to fill the vehicle up!  The car boasts an EPA-estimated range of 620 miles when starting with a full tank of gas and fully charged battery.  And believe me when I tell you this is a FACT.  Also when driving in the city, the Ford Fusion Energi hybrid has an EPA-estimated rating of 21 miles in electric-only mode – nearly triple the electric-only range of the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid and nearly double the Honda Accord plug-in hybrid.

These cools button allowed me to use Fuel or EV (Electric Energy Only). Nice!

Some other cool features I loved were the navigation system; Sirius Satellite Radio, Park Assist, Reverse Sensing System, Rear View Camera, and SmartGauge® with EcoGuide.   The  SmartGauge® with EcoGuide is super cool.  It provides the driver with instantaneous fuel economy information that can be displayed on one of two 4.2-inch LCD screens, helping drivers more closely monitor how their driving behavior affects vehicle efficiency.

I also want to note that the Reverse Sensing System is the best ever.  This system could see things I could never see even as I turned around and checked my rear.  The Reverse Sensing System detected cars and/or people approaching from all rear view angles.  This is simply priceless.

The ride down to New Orleans was smooth and without incident.  The Ford Fusion Energi comes standard with Ford MyTouch and heated seats for all passengers for those cold winter days.  

Check out some pictures from our adventures down to New Orleans in the Ford Fusion Energi.
