More than meets the eye

2007 Ford Five Hundred SEL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
The acceleration is great, once you get use to the CVT transmission. It handles like a nS80 Volvo. Gas mileage so far at 24 mpg on my 44 mile round trips to work. Lots of room, wish the front seat went back about another inch. (I am 6'5") Good head room and I love the adjustable brake and gas peddles. Air bags everywhere, even in the canopy. Facts you need to know. The 3.0 duratec engine is from a Porsche designed 2.5 (Ford bored it out to 3.0) the AWD is the Haldex system from Volvo. Suspension is also Volvo derived from the S80. 0-60 is under 8 seconds. CVT transmission is German designed and built from ZF transmission group. Very underrated car.
AWD system, adjustable peddles, ride height and actual ride of the car. Pirelli P6 18 inch tires.
Rear wiper and just one more inch of seat adjustment.
