Ford is doing a thirteen city tour called the EcoBoost Challenge which will allow consumers to drive Ford products such as the Escape, Fusion, and the upcoming Fiesta ST. The tour will include events like the ST Performance Academy, a hyper-mile challenge for Ford hybrid vehicles and head-to-head competitive drives on a challenge course.

“Ford is delivering on its promise to give fuel-efficiency-minded customers the power of choice, by offering a lineup that includes five electrified vehicles, two plug-in hybrids and eight vehicles available with EcoBoost Technology. Throughout this tour, we will let consumers experience the technology that helps deliver better fuel economy and engaging driving than the competition,” said David Mondragon, general marketing manager for Ford and Lincoln.
