that are concerned with environmental impact more than just what the gas will cost them. That emissions sticker slapped in the window of a new car that compares it to average cars for its model year is there because of consumer demand. At least in California. Is that a 50-state thing?
Look at Honda/Acura - they post a sticker in the window of every car they sell that says 'ULEV' or 'SULEV' or whatever. Their own sticker, which is in addition to the mandatory one. At the Honda dealership, low emissions have always been a selling point.
Saw a Dodge truck with the huge 'HEMI' badge on it this morning - man are those ever huge rims on that thing!

Ford's even gotten Escape reliability up to "average" per CR. The hybrid might be a hit.

Hope the Escape hybrid goes well for Ford also.
They could use a hit.
