Al Piemonte Fuel Efficient Vehicles

Posted March 28, 2011

Al Piemonte Ford has a number of fuel-efficient vehicle choices available on our lot, all averaging near 40-mpg, saving you money at the pump while providing a high quality American made vehicle.

Ranging from the new 2012 Focus that averages 40-mpg on the highway with a ride and build quality expected from the Ford Focus, to the 2011 Ford Escape Hybrid that achieves remarkably high ratings of up to 34-mpg in the city from a small SUV, Al Piemonte is your one-stop shop for all your high fuel-efficiency needs.

With stock on any type of vehicle you need from compact to small SUV to commercial transport, the fuel-efficient lineup available from Al Piemonte is unlike anything seen at other dealerships.

The 2011 Ford Fiesta sees fuel economy numbers that reach up to 40-mpg on the highway and 29 in the city when equipped with the Super Fuel Economy Package and automatic transmission.  First making a name for itself in the hot-hatch dominated roads of Europe, the Fiesta is making a huge splash on American soil for good reason.  The great build quality and smooth ride of the Fiesta has captured the attention of the youth of America and provides a low-cost fuel-efficient vehicle starting at only $13,320 less the destination charge.

The 2011 Ford Fusion took home the Motor Trend the 2010 Car of the Year, due in large part to the success seen with the Hybrid model that surpasses the 40-mpg threshold in the city and sits at 36-mpg when the 2.5-liter powerplant kicks on while traveling at speeds of over 47 miles per hour.  Starting at under $30,000 for a hybrid vehicle, the Fusion is a great car for the environmentally or fiscally responsible driver.

The 2011 Ford Escape Hybrid brings better fuel-economy than nearly any other SUV on the road today, making 34-mpg in the city and 31-mpg when it hits the open road.  Escape’s Regenerative braking recharges the battery every time you apply the brakes and the small SUV is capable of accelerating from 0-to-44 miles per hour without kick starting the gas engine.

Come talk to one of our knowledgeable sales staff members about the fuel-efficient vehicles available from Al Piemonte Ford and we will help you get in the right car for you and help you pay for it with our many financing options available.

Looking for an excellent vehicle that achieves a high level of fuel efficiency and still provides an excellent ride quality and superior interior design, look no further than the 2011 Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Bringing a 2.5-liter engine that gets mated to modern hybrid technology, the 2011 Fusion Hybrid provides a sportier feel while driving, powering up to 191 horsepower and encourages smart driving with the efficiency-enhancing instrument cluster that is more interactive than a traditional cluster.

The digital instrument cluster features the gauges you’d expect to find centered in front of the driver, but also incorporated a unique display that grows leaves as you drive more efficiently.  Matching the EPA estimated 41-mpg in the city by keeping the car’s speed under or around 47 miles per hour and keeping the hard braking and accelerating to a minimum, drivers can see up to 700 miles on a single fill-up.

With a tight, but not overly harsh ride and responsive steering, the 2011 Fusion Hybrid makes for a sporty ride and saves owners money at the pump.  With great features like a 10-way adjustable driver’s seat, reverse sensing system and Microsoft SYNC® system standard, the 2011 Fusion Hybrid is a fuel-efficient vehicle that brings an upscale level of comfort for under $30,000.
