Is your hybrid loud when you are accelerating hard?

Inquiring minds want to know (I can' believe no one has asked). How effective is your noise reduction attempt? Yes, the engine sounds terrible when pushed. I rarely do accelerate hard (once in a while when entering a highway and once to show my kids the thrashing sound).

It was a huge improvement and Ford needs to do this for the 2011's!

Maybe they did do something for the 2011s. I've had mine two weeks so far and yesterday we took it up to the northern part of the state up and down some steep grades on the interstate. I kept the cruise control on 70 going up a 6 mile steep grade. For anyone who has been to Arizona, this is on I-17 northbound. You go up about 3,000 feet in only 6 miles or so.

The engine got up to 3000 to 3500 RPM a couple of times and I did hear a louder hum from under the hood, but absolutely nothing out of the ordinary. This was by far the highest it has been pushed because all of my previous driving had been around town and I was taking it easy also for the first few hundred miles.

And the best thing about it going up hill with the hybrid transmission is no annoying downshifting all the time. My other car is a Jaguar and if I try to climb that same grade at 70 MPH it will constantly dowshift every quarter mile or so which gets annoying over 6 or 7 miles. The Fusion went up the hill as smooth as silk and the speed never varied off of 70. By far the smoothest, quietest car I've ever owned.

Is the Lincoln MKZ 'better' (I upgraded from a Civic hatch so my FFH is great)

current = 2014 Focus Titanium hatch

No, sorry. Just imagine a bunch of Dynamat extreme and Dynamat foam stuffed on the fender and against the firewall

I have a 2014 Fusion Hybrid.  Not only is the engine loud when it is accelerating but the 'buzz' it makes is very obnoxious.  So much so considering getting rid of it.  I can mostly drown it out with the radio.

However I am willing to do some noise dampening to it.  I have not pinpointed the source, but thinking it's noise along the intake pipe.

Considering using some dynomat or other sound deadening material to wrap in the intake pie with.

 I solved the problem concerning engine noise.  my 2013 engine makes different vibrational sounds at different RPM's and under different loads.  Almost sounds like a cow mooing when accelerating. My engine must be rated in cow power not horse power.   I fixed the problem.   I just turn the stereo louder.  Lucky i have the premium stereo.
