Car Tech Video: 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid1:01 /
The Fusion is a big bet for Ford, so it's about time it goes hybrid.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> It's a real meat-and-potato segment for the auto business. Mid-size sedans, like the Ford Fusion, but where's the hybrid. Well, here it is now, debuting in Los Angeles, along with its Mercury stable-mate, the Milan. Also with the same hybrid power train. The bottom line is this. They're promising 5 miles per gallon better than Camry hybrid in city EPA mileage. That's a nice simple headline for consumers. How about the cabin tech. We've seen Ford Sync in here before, that will be available, as well as Sirius Travel Link. Also the Smart Gauge we've shown you before, an LCD info panel where vines grow as you drive more greenly at its prompting. Look for blind spot information system, kind of a hot new thing with a lot of car makers. And there's a detector that keeps you from backing up into cross-traffic and getting T-boned. That, and Sony branded audio makes the tech message here fairly strong, along with the green message. ^M00:00:58 [ Music ]
