In other words, when the 2014 Ford Taurus is presented to you, you need not even blink to decide if you want it or not.

2013 Ford C-Max: Redefining the Concept of Hybrid Cars

3If you are thinking that the Prius is the best hybrid car on the market today, you’ve got to look a lot closer at some of the newer car brands and models for this year.

In terms of performance, the 2013 Ford C-Max gives out more than one could expect from a hybrid. The acceleration is smooth and does not give a hint when there is a shift from gas to electric power. While there are drivers who are saying that driving around in this car could be harsh, they could not deny that it has way more advantages when it comes to handling. Braking is something that would feel a bit different but drivers could easily get used to it.

An electric motor is coupled with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to make this car capable of giving out 188 horse power.  Unlike most hybrids in the market today, this one could go to 60 MPH on electric power alone.

On a full tank, it could cover 570 miles which far better than the range of the Prius. The car could also come in the plug-in version which is true a best-seller.

22Focusing on the things that make your happy in life should be something that everyone should do, but not everyone understands what exactly this entails or how exactly they are going to achieve such goals in a world where opportunities for happiness seem to be diminishing every day. Instead of looking at the bad side of the conversation though, which is steadily getting worse by the way, you can get a lot more out of life by leaning towards the bright side. For the side to focus on for example, the 2013 Ford Focus gives you one of the more accessible means of being happy that remains.

The 2013 Ford Focus looks as fun to drive as it is to drive, and the reason for this is because of the light theme that went into making the exterior to alleviate the heavy atmosphere. There should not have to be a reason why people should have to go through misery when they can have cars like this that are just a joy to look at.

A fun interior and a fun exterior are very important in order to enjoy life, but the interior is the more crucial part of the deal because that is where you will be. That is why the space that you are provided with will be fun through its lack of confinement and the design is fun because it makes driving easier.

The 2013 Ford Focus might be a joy to look at and be inside of, but the true worth of this car is with its performance. A fuel efficient, turbocharged engine with EcoBoost feature is what will make your day perfect by driving it.

2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid: Revolutionizing Car Ownership Costs

31One of the greatest achievements that Ford could boast of at the current times is their creation of a hybrid plugin car. It is very apparent that issues on fuel costs as well clean energy sources has been influencing many car makers to shift to the electric  or even just the hybrid types. The result now is a bigger range of option for those who are planning to buy a car that could be deemed as a wise investment. With the launch of the new 2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid, the Prius plugin hybrid and Chevy Volt finally has a worthy competitor.

Is this car really the perfect one for us? Many of those who will look more on what is under the hood would definitely see its real value. The appearance of the 2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid would give a hint of resemblance to the Ford Fiesta. This is understandable since it really has been patterned after it. The car has been designed to be high. On the driver’s seat, it would give lots of headroom due to its rising roofline. Passengers could also enjoy more head room and a legroom that is quite not available in many of Ford models.

In terms of performance, the powertrains of this car consists of a 2-liter, 4-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor that gives out 118 HP. The combined power of these two would yield a total of 188 HP which is fairly good for those who have regular driving needs.  Many of us will be surprised by its MPGe rating which has been tested to be at 108 city/92 highway/100 combined. On city roads, it drives like a regular electric car which is quiet but responsive to acceleration pushes.

It takes at least 2 hours to charge the batteries of this car but it will be worth it if we will be running 18 miles or less per day. The distance between visits to the gas station could be increased and therefore more savings would be accumulated. This is why ownership of the new 2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid is being seen as easier and economical.
