The milestone is another step in the One Ford plan to be the undisputed industry fuel economy leader, with more segment fuel economy leaders than Toyota or any other manufacturer. By the end of next month, customers will be able to choose eight Ford-built vehicles that deliver 40 or more miles per gallon — double the number available last year and more than any other automaker. Ford also recently introduced the world's most fuel efficient mid-size sedan with the Fusion hybrid, rated at 47 mpg city, 47 mpg highway and 47 mpg combined. The C-Max Hybrid is also rated at a combined 47 mpg, which beats the Toyota Prius v.

Replace the valve springs with the same valve drivetrain of a Formula One engine and redline the 3.5 L eco boost engine @ 20,000 RPM. Then add a supercharger and we might have something.

Turbos are the way to go for more power & better fuel mileage from smaller engines

Although none of the vehicles mentioned in this article fulfill our transportation needs, one has to offer congratulations to Ford for this accomplishment. Those who have their transportation needs met by these Ford offerings will be able to seriously consider a US manufactured product.

Now if Ford or the other two could get their pickup trucks higher than 23mpg, that would be something.

I'd rather get a Ford because they refused to let the Gov't bail them out.

Ford reports that, by 2013, more than 90 percent of its North American lineup will be available with an EcoBoost engine.
