Gas-powered cars have made exceptional strides in fuel economy in the past few years. Maybe the most striking progress has been made by the mid-size sedan, where a 30-mile-per-gallon combined gas mileage rating is no longer out of reach--it's reality for at least three of the four top sellers.
One of the most striking examples of the class is the 2013 Ford Fusion. Like other mid-size sedans, the new Fusion has removed the V-6 engine from its equation entirely. It now relies entirely upon four-cylinder engines, with or without turbocharging or hybrid add-ons, to generate power across its lineup.
Yet, even in the standard-issue models, the Fusion sedan aimed squarely at the mass market nails the 30-mpg EPA-combined hurdle we've set here at Green Car Reports. Not only that, the Fusion with the 1.6-liter turbocharged four is rated at up to 37 miles per gallon on the highway cycle, a gas-powered achievement in the segment surpassed only by the CVT-equipped Nissan Altima sedan.
It isn't all...
