God bless the Ford Motor Company. We’ve dealt with a lot of automotive garbage over the last year at the hands of U.S. auto manufactures. They’ve laid off thousands of workers, closed assembly plants and taken government bailout money.
Ford however has done the opposite. They posted profits for 2009 and never took a nickle from the government. They’re also introducing cars like the Fusion Hybrid and Ford Mustang V6 that are getting stellar reviews as well as fuel economy. For example the 2011 Mustang V6 is rated at 31 mpg and puts out an amazing 305 hp. That is a first for ANY V6 vehicle! Ladies and gentlemen that is a huge stake in the ground for Ford.
Not only that, but there are already more than 11,000 orders for these babies. We all know that the Mustang is already an automotive icon. To have it be the first V6 to deliver this kind of fuel economy and performance is not only a brilliant marketing tactic by Ford but something that helps generate some much needed positive energy for American auto manufactures. Way to go Ford!
