Great news out of the US News and World Report! In their annual ranking of “Best Cars for Families”, the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid was named “Best Hybrid Car for Families“!
Anyone who has driven a Fusion Hybrid could probably have guessed this though – like with the rest of the Ford lineup, the Fusion Hybrid offers something for everyone. It’s got a spacious interior – perfect for hauling kids around. Its got a pretty sizeable trunk, especially compared to other mid-size sedans. It’s got plenty of advanced driver-assist and infotainment technology options like SYNC with MyFord Touch. It’s got an efficient hybrid powertrain that delivers all the power you need when you need it, without sacrificing fuel economy when you don’t (great for commuting to work, especially if your commute is a mix of city and highway driving).
And at the end of the day, its just fun to drive. You don’t have to sacrifice the ‘fun’ factor just because you want to buy a hybrid.
The “Best Cars for Families” award highlights cars, SUVs, and minivans that are the best fit for families. Award winners must have the best combination of high safety and reliability ratings, excellent reviews from automotive critics, and space and features that matter most to families.

When buying a new truck, the main concern on the mind of most people are the obvious things – getting the right length bed, the right style of cab, an engine strong enough to haul everything you plan on hauling. Increasingly though, we’ve come across people who are looking for something more out of their truck. They want to know that the truck they buy is built from the ground up with an eco-conscious attitude. They want to know that their truck, in addition to being able to perform its job duties effectively and efficiently, is also in line with their values – respect for the planet, recycling as much and as often as possible, and a commitment to reduced carbon emissions.
When Ford designed this generation of F-150 and F-series trucks, they took these values into consideration, and the trucks that come off the line in Kansas City, Missouri and Dearborn, Michigan come standard with a number of eco-conscious materials.
The big update for the 2014 F-150 in terms of sustainably sourced materials is the addition of Rice Hulls. Continue reading
