Ford revises fuel economy ratings for 6 vehicles

By ,

After discovering an error with the fuel consumption ratings on certain vehicles through its internal testing, Ford has notified the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and made the necessary corrections.

Six different vehicles are affected including 2013 and 2014 hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, as well as most 2014 Fiestas.

“Ford is absolutely committed to delivering top fuel economy and accurate information,” said Alan Mulally, Ford president and CEO. “We apologize to our customers and will provide goodwill payments to affected owners. We also are taking steps to improve our processes and prevent issues like this from happening again.”

Ford reviewed its entire lineup to determine the vehicles that required further testing and revised the fuel consumption ratings for the affected vehicles. No other label adjustments are planned.
