2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid versus the Inline 4
February 03, 2010
A couple of weeks ago I drove a 2010 Ford Fusion equipped with a four-cylinder gasoline engine. Even with 175 horsepower at its command, it felt sluggish and made struggling noises. No surprise for a car of this size with a small engine.
This was before I had a chance to drive our new hybrid Fusion. The hybrid feels better to me. Of course, it's much quieter. But it also has more power with a gasoline engine/electric motor that combines for a maximum of 191 horsepower.
