2017 Ford Fusion Sport with turbocharged 2.7L EcoBoost V6!

Automotive fans and followers have their attention turned to Detriot this week as the annual North American International Auto Show kicks off. Known as the showcase for what's new and whats news from all the world's auto makers. This year the show once again belong to Ford as they continued to roll out an ever-expanding line-up of unbelievable product! The Fusion is getting a freshen up for 2017 and two new models as well; a top of the line Platinum and a high-performance version, the Fusion Sport!
From the Ford Press Release:
"DETROIT, Jan. 11, 2016 – The new Ford Fusion continues to be a game changer among midsize sedans, with the most technologically advanced lineup ever – including two hybrid models and a new all-wheel-drive Fusion V6 Sport engineered to leave other family sedans in the dust.

Fusion V6 Sport and the new Fusion Platinum add to a lineup featuring three EcoBoost® engine choices, along with two hybrids, Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid – something neither Toyota nor Honda offers midsize sedan shoppers.

“Fusion offers people a lot more car – including helpful technology, beautiful design and a more rewarding driving experience than other midsize sedans,” said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president and chief technical officer, Global Product Development.

  • Fusion V6 Sport: Fusion V6 Sport is a performance sedan unlike anything in the segment with a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 delivering a projected 325 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. All-wheel-drive Fusion V6 Sport is projected to make approximately 100 lb.-ft. of additional torque and nearly 50 more horsepower than the 3.5-liter V6 engines in Toyota Camry and Honda Accord
  • Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi: New Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi lead America’s best-selling lineup of plug-in hybrids. New software in both hybrids delivers an even more refined and engaging drive for customers, while more efficient electric motors are expected to contribute to better fuel economy and a purer range of electric driving
  • Fusion Platinum: Fusion Platinum is designed for those seeking even greater levels of refinement and craftsmanship in a midsize sedan. With available award-winning 2.0-liter EcoBoost and all-wheel drive, the real story is the interior experience. Instrument and door trim panels are wrapped in antiqued Cocoa leather, and the hand-wrapped steering wheel is finished in premium Venetian leather. A unique grille finished in Magnetic paint makes for an upscale design and 19-inch polished wheels return confident performance

Together, Fusion V6 Sport, Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi, and Fusion Platinum offer three different flavors of an award-winning lineup for midsize sedan customers.

Fusion V6 Sport adds continuously controlled damping for real-time suspension tuning based on setup and road inputs. The system features pothole detection technology that, in less than the blink of an eye, adjusts the shock absorbers to greatly reduce the severity of impact transmitted to occupants. Power and handling are complemented by unique, performance-inspired style inside and out. The look is distinguished by an aggressive exterior with deeper air intakes and a gloss black-finish mesh grille, 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler and dual twin exhaust outlets."

Car Pool Lane Stickers Now Unavailable from DMV…

Riverside and Inland Empire commuters looking for car pool (HOV) lane access may be coming up short after a recent announcement from the California DMV...
From a press release issued by the California New Car Dealers Assoc:
"Green HOV Decals No Longer Available
Today (Dec, 17 2015), CNCDA has learned that the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) posted an important notice regarding the Green Clean Air Vehicle (CAV) Decals.  The 85,000 statutory Green Clean Air Decal limit has been reached.

The DMV will continue to accept applications without payment to establish a waiting list should an additional amount of decals be authorized.  CNCDA recommends dealers immediately pull any advertising mentioning the Green Sticker Program.  Although DMV is building a wait list, CNCDA doesn't anticipate the authorization of additional decals.

The 85,000 authorized Green CAV decals were issued to applicants that purchased or leased vehicles meeting California's Enhanced Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emission Vehicle or Transitional Zero-Emission Vehicle requirements.

All CAV decals must be reauthorized for use by the Federal Highway Administration. If re-authorization is not granted, the Clean Air Vehicle sticker program may end sooner than state law currently allows.  State law extends the use of CAV decals for enhanced AT PZEV or TZEV through January 1, 2019."

There may be a few vehicles still available at select new car dealers that already have stickers issued from the dealership applying for them at a prior date in advance. See your Riverside HOV/EV headquarters, Raceway Ford, for details.

2016 Ford Explorer Platinum sets the bar for luxury SUV’s

The Blue Oval is on one amazing streak of 'doing things right' lately and the redesign of their SUV flagship the Explorer shows they have no intention of slowing down. At the top of the line for their anchor truck is the new Platinum edition and it more than lives of to the implications of the title!
The folks at Ford gathered some of the nations top auto journalists together, flew them up to some of the most beautiful scenery on earth and let them loose in the new Explorers. Our friend Chad Kirchner, the Average Car Guy, was one of the invited and his review is a must read for Ford fans! From his post:
"When an automaker flies a bunch of journalists out to a beautiful or exotic location, they do it because they want the journalist to enjoy themselves. A happy journalist ultimately leads to, hopefully, a happy review. The thing is, with the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum, they could’ve had launch event at the fiery gates of Hell and I still would’ve enjoyed the vehicle. The 2016 Explorer, in Platinum trim, is one of the best modern Fords you can buy...."
