Ford Lowers Economy Ratings for Six Vehicles

Ford Raleigh imageAnybody that knows even a little bit about vehicles will already take most manufacturers’ fuel-economy claims for their new vehicles with a hefty pinch of salt. It isn’t that we question the honesty of these automotive giants, it’s just that most of us know that these figures are derived from laboratory-type testing in ideal circumstances, designed to get the absolute maximum economy from the vehicle.
