For the fourth year in a row, the Ford Fusion Hybrid has come out on top as the U.S. News Best Hybrid Car for Families, establishing the hybrid sedan as the perfect family car for parents looking to go green. The Fusion Hybrid combines superior fuel efficiency, plenty of space, and sleek, sexy styling to offer a vehicle that is sure to make the other parents in the car pool lane jealous.
The EPA has given the Fusion Hybrid an estimated fuel economy rating of 44 miles per gallon city and 41 mpg highway. Combining this terrific fuel efficiency with the hybrid vehicle’s comfortable ride and agile performance, it’s no surprise that the Fusion Hybrid is a top choice for U.S. News’ editors. Inside the cabin, the sedan offers a variety of high-tech, driver assistance features, including Ford’s Sync system and MyFord Touch infotainment system. It also has lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and parallel park assist, along with many other terrific technologies.

Many automakers have been hoping to bring fully autonomous vehicles to market by the end of the decade—and suddenly, Ford is right in the thick of that race. The brand just announced that a new Ford self-driving car, a version of the Fusion Hybrid, is already undergoing on-road testing—which gives it a pretty big head start on some other autonomous vehicles. Perhaps Ford will bring its self-driving car to market before anyone else, although that of course remains to be seen.
What doesn’t remain to be seen is Ford’s commitment to the future—a future that will inevitably include autonomous technology. “We’re already manufacturing and selling semi-autonomous vehicles that use software and sensors to steer into both parallel and perpendicular parking spaces, adjust speed based on traffic flow or apply the brakes in an emergency,” Ford CEO Mark Fields said in a statement. “There will be a Ford autonomous vehicle in the future, and we take putting one on the road very seriously.”
To learn more about the possibilities of autonomous Ford vehicles—and maybe to think about which ones would look best as autonomous vehicles—come see us here at Shults Ford of Harmarville to check out the current Ford lineup. You might have to keep your hands on the wheel for now, but with vehicles that handle this good, you won’t mind.
