Ford Says FU Prius!

It's about freaking time that someone gives the Prius the middle finger and boy does Ford do it spectacularlly!

Even the media is drooling over the newest Hybrid

The automotive press has begun testing the all-new 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid in recent weeks. Two prominent publications have now published comparisons pitting the Fusion Hybrid against its Toyota competition, and the Ford has won both.

Eat shit Toyota!

USA Today writes: "OK, let's just get it out there: The 2010 Ford Fusion hybrid is the best gasoline-electric hybrid yet. What makes it best is a top-drawer blend of an already very good midsize sedan with the industry's smoothest, best-integrated gas-electric power system. It's so well-done that you have to look to the $107,000 Lexus LS 600h hybrid to come close."

And Die!

Car and Driver set the Fusion against the Camry Hybrid, Chevy Malibu Hybrid and Altima Hybrid, but the result was the same. "Ford has pulled off a game changer with this 2010 model, creating a high-mpg family hauler that's fun to drive," they write. "Nothing about the leather-lined test car, optioned up from its $27,995 base price to $32,555, seemed economy minded except for the mileage readings. On that score, the Fusion topped the others, turning in a 34-mpg score card for the overall 300-mile test run."

I imagine Toyota will be putting out lies stories that Ford is full of shit about the Fusion Hybrid.

It's so much fun to see Toyota sweat!!!!

I was one incorrect email away from being stuck with the Prius. HATE that car. Hate hate hate.

Too small, too confusing to drive, SUCKS.

I'm thrilled to see Ford take the lead in this category. I love my Escape Hybrid. If they do as well with this as they did with that, well, that's just fantastic!!

In about 5 years I'll be looking for a new vehicle. I'll have 225K on my mini-van and I'll have one less kid at home. I'd love to get something like the Ford Fusion. Although my driving will be toned down as there will be fewer kids, can you imagine the kind of mpg a car like that will get in 5 years? It'll only get better and better...
