Omaha, NE -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/23/2012 -- Fuel prices have increased dramatically over the past several years and, as a result, so has the demand for more fuel-efficient cars. In response, automakers have integrated numerous fuel-saving designs into their existing vehicle lineups, and some automakers have even developed more fuel-efficient vehicles from the ground up.
Unfortunately, investing in a more fuel-efficient vehicle isn’t an option for many drivers simply due to the higher upfront cost. That being said, Atchley Ford of Omaha, NE is pleased to share that the 2013 Ford Fusion will offer an inexpensive fuel-saving option – the Auto Start-Stop System.
Priced at just $295, Ford’s Auto Start-Stop System is far less expensive than competitive systems, which can cost upwards of thousands of dollars. In addition, the 2013 Ford Fusion will be the first non-hybrid, midsize sedan to offer Auto Start-Stop.
The Auto Start-Stop System is designed to reduce fuel consumption by switching off the engine when the vehicle is not in motion. By releasing the brake, the engine is quickly restarted and the vehicle then continues on its way. In addition to saving fuel, the Auto Start-Stop System will also reduce unnecessary exhaust emissions.
Drivers can expect to save around $1,100 over a five-year driver period, depending on their driving habits, which is actually very impressive considering how low the upfront cost is.
