2014 Ford Fiesta ST rated at 26 City/ 35 Hwy MPG

Paul Cerame Ford, Saint Louis’ best Ford dealer, recently learned that Ford Motor Company has released fuel economy ratings for the upcoming hot-hatch, the Fiesta ST.  The next great sport compact will get 26 mpg in the city, 35 mpg highway, with a combined 29 mpg overall.  This fuel efficiency comes courtesy of a new 1.6 liter Ecoboost motor that provides 197 horsepower and 202 lb ft of torque, all in a lightweight platform.

While the Fiesta fall a little short to the Fiat 500 Abarth, its main competitor, in overall fuel economy, it makes up for it in other areas.  First, the Abarth only has 160 horsepower and 170 lb ft of torque, 27 horsepower and 32 lb ft less, respectively.  Second, the Fiesta has 15 cubic feet of storage space, while the Fiat gives you significantly less at 9.5 cubic feet.

While the EPA has yet to officially rated this info, Ford has submitted the data and expects their numbers to reflect the EPA’s.  The Fiesta ST will be arriving at Florissant’s favorite Ford dealer, Paul Cerame Ford, in the next few months.  If you would like to receive more info about this or any other Ford vehicle please contact us at (314) 838-2400.

Fusion Energi Wins Again

Here at St. Louis Best Ford dealer we were thrilled to see the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations latest Vehicle Safety Ratings.  The all new 2013 Ford Fusion Energi has taken the top Safety Rating of 5 Stars in overall vehicle score.  The five-star rating is the U.S. Government’s highest-possible safety rating and is determined only after severe testing procedures as part of NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), which combines vehicle performance in frontal and side-impact crash tests and resistance to rollover.

In addition, the Fusion was also named a Top Safety Pick + by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the highest recommendation the organization has for vehicle safety.  All this and it also achieves EPA-rated fuel economy of 100 MPGe combined, including 108 MPGe city/92 MPGe highway, which is 5 MPGe than the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid.

We know it is safe, we know it gets great fuel economy, we know it looks great driving down the roads of Florissant.  It is the perfect all around vehicle.

More Honors for Ford Electric Cars

Here at St. Louis best Ford dealership, we already know we are selling an exceptional product.  But, it never hurts to hear other industry leaders say you are selling an exceptional product.  Kelley Blue Book recently released their 10 Best Green Cars.  Ford has 2 vehicles on the list.

The Ford C-Max Energi which KBB said, “Currently the most affordable plug-in hybrid on the road, the Ford C-Max Energi is vying for the hearts and minds of eco-conscious enthusiasts who suffer from severe range anxiety. Beyond its 21-mile all-electric range, the C-Max Energi can even be fun to drive, a rare trait among today’s green machines.”

KBB loves the 2013 Ford Focus Electric even more.  It beat out other big names such as the Toyota Prius. the Chevy Volt and the Honda Fit.  KBB said, ” With Ford’s well-regarded 5-door hatchback as its foundation, the 2013 Focus Electric starts with a leg up. Toss in some cool features and an advanced powertrain that pairs a 107 kW electric motor with a liquid-cooled Lithium-ion battery and the result is a fun, practical runabout for green-leaners.”

 Even better for St. Louis area folks, we have recently installed a charging station in our service drive.  I have already seen a few customers using it.  It is a very exciting time for us here in Florissant.  It is great to see Ford being such a forward thinking company, constantly coming up with new technologies to improve all of our vehicles.  We would love to see you over here at Paul Cerame Ford.  We would love to show you our exciting hybrids and electric vehicles and our new charging station.  Come on in and take a look at all the advances Ford has made.
