We often warn of the dangers of rumors. Idle gossip - however well-intentioned - can leave consumers disappointed in the end, with every assumption disproven and every speculation undermined. It’s best, we know, to stick to the facts.
When considering the 2020 Mustang Hybrid, however, we may not be able to heed our own advice.
According to Car Scoops, the 2020 Mustang Hybrid will soon enter production - and critics are already tossing around potential specs. While none of these have been confirmed, they do have us crossing our fingers.
Critics anticipate the new Mustang will feature a 2.3L four-cylinder. EcoBoost technology is expected to maximize fuel distribution, while auto start-stop capabilities should further lessen consumption by powering down the ignition while idling.
Rumors suggest that this hybrid will offer a 400 HP power-band, as well as up to 400 lb.-ft of torque. Ford has suggested that the 2020 Mustang will share similarities with the GT, and this spec range would support that.
Unlike traditional hybrids - which favor a CVT - the Mustang may boast a 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford has fused this system to most of its 2018 fleet, and it’s likely that it would wish to continue this pattern.
Should these features prove true, they would propel the Mustang to the top of the charts - branding it the ultimate hybrid for Seattle. To learn more contact us today!
The search for economy too often leads drivers away from safety - forcing them to travel those long, lonely roads to the fuel station without the support of automatic braking. They’ll choose a hybrid for its value at the pump… and keep their fingers crossed that they’ll never have to trust it in an accident.
Ford knows that those odds will never prove favorable. This is why it’s bolstered the 2019 Fusion Hybrid will advanced safety features - ensuring that Seattle drivers remain protected on the road.
Anchoring the new Fusion is the Co-Pilot 360. As the Detroit Free Press explains, this collection of safety technologies brings peace of mind to every mile - allowing consumers to more confidently navigate the highway. Automatic emergency braking engages when an obstacle is identified (with both cross-traffic alerts and a pedestrian detection system yielding real-time scans of the surrounding environment). Lane-keeping functionality ensures balanced handling, instantly correcting vehicle alignment; while high-beams sense low-light conditions and switch themselves on. Blind spot warnings deliver a series of chirps to notify drivers of approaching cars; and LED bulbs cut through even the darkest days with ease.
To further enhance the 2019 Fusion Hybrid’s capabilities, Ford also provides a rear-view camera - which blends grid-line support with a capacitive touchscreen. High-definition video feeds are streamed to the center console, offering 180-degree perspectives. Track traffic and pedestrians with the press of a button.

Hybrid mobility will soon receive a diesel upgrade - with Ford fusing its 2019 Transit Connect with a new EcoBlue engine. Prepare for premium performance with every mile.
According to Hybrid Cars, the 2019 Transit Connect will impress both at the pump and on the highway. Anchored by a new 2.0L EcoBlue engine, this diesel machine should generate 123 HP and 221 lb.-ft of torque. It will pair an eight-speed automatic transmission with a peppy FWD to ensure maximum performance, with critics anticipating direct-injection fuel distribution to improve overall revs. This will allow the platform to accommodate commercial hauls with ease, with a 2,000-pound payload rating expected.
What should prove most appealing to drivers, however, is the Connect’s efficiency. Blending a diesel engine with available lithium-ion supplemental support, this platform should achieve 19 MPGs in the city and 27 MPGs on the highway. Some critics believe, however, that these numbers could rise as high as 10% (once the EcoBlue has made its official debut, all specs will be confirmed). Less time will be wasted at the pump!
