Get Dad a Lamborghini for Father’s day!

Or maybe somthing a little more "green" with the Fiesta

Though not a hybrid, electric car or bike we wanted to share something cool found and learned about at Green Living. Ford has come out with a new model that tops the EPA's charts when it comes to fuel efficiency. So here are the details:

  • Ford's all-new 2011 Fiesta will now stand out on the highway with an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified 40 mpg rating, making it the most fuel efficient car in its class. 5 mpg better than the Honda Fit and 4 mpg better than the Toyota Yaris. This also means the Fiesta joins Fusion Hybrid – America's most fuel efficient midsize sedan – and other class leaders like Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner Hybrids in fuel efficiency.
  • The Fiesta also features the PowerShift transmission, a six-speed automatic that combines the fuel benefits of a manual with the convenience of an automatic.  Combine that with electric power-assisted steering, another fuel saver and some aerodynamic optimizations and you have a car that can go a long way on a single tank of fuel.
  • To increase fuel economy, Fiesta features a new 1.6-liter Duratec® engine with Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) that delivers 120 horsepower, an aggressive deceleration fuel shutoff and an engine accessory drive system that improves efficiency by reducing the energy it takes to power the air conditioner and alternator. 

Why are we sharing this with you?

Because if ever Dad says, "I need a sports car that handles the turns and hugs the road." You can show him this and prove that a car may not be a Lamborghini,  but it is better at corners and is a heck of a lot better for Mother Nature.
