2013 Ford Fusion to Have Optional Start-Stop Tech

Traditionally, start-stop technology is common on hybrid vehicles. This technology allows the car to turn the engine off when it stopped at a red light or in traffic in and start backup automatically. It sounds good in theory, but in practice, some of the hybrids I've driven have quite a lag between the engine turning off the engine coming back on.

Ford has announced that it will make start-stop optional with a price of only $295 on the 2013 Fusion. The option will only be available on 1.6-liter EcoBoost equipped Fusion and promised to save as much as 10% on fuel economy for some drivers with 3.5% average.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
