 A new study brought out by JD Power and Associates predicts sales of hybrids electric vehicles and high mileage diesels are expected to triple by 2015. With gas prices nearing the $4 a gallon range, many new car purchasers are leaving behind the gas guzzlers of the ‘90s in favor of the greener, meaner, high mileage hybrid vehicles. It just makes sense.

    New technologies such as Ford Motor Companies’ direct-injection EcoBoost engine are designed to permit the use of smaller, more powerful and fuel efficient powertrains with a very small difference in performance. Diesel engines are also likely to become more prominent on new cars in the very near future. Though many drivers who remember the ‘60’s and ‘70’s diesels still associate the engine with black soot spewing from a smelly exhaust, those days are long over. The diesel engines of today offer superior gas mileage and clean burning with none of the old diesel problems.

  Ford Motor Company’s sales have turned a profit, largely based on the sales of it’s smaller, economical and high-tech vehicles. Five Star Ford of Scottsdale offers a great line of the new green and fuel efficient vehicles.
