The American BMW
By interplexor on
1996 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan
If BMW was based in the US, this would be their posterchild. A supple and lush small block 3.4 liter V8 powerplant coaxes the car to light speed in seconds. Freeway merges are simple. Point for a hole, stab the gas- and you're there. The car handles with composure & poise, the tires barely want to let loose. The gentle burble of the engine at cruising speed (80+ MPH) can put your children to sleep, and by the same token, can wake the dead when pushed hard. The glorious sound that engine makes at it's 6,200 RPM redline is what dreams are made of. A simple, and comfortable interior finishes it off.
Favorite Features
Without a doubt, the V8 engine is what makes this car what it is. The Taurus itself is a world-class vehicle. The V8 brought it to the big leagues.
Suggested Improvements
fuel economy. I never would have thought a 3.4 liter engine would return 13 miles to the gallon. I recall 7 liter V8s from the 70s doing better then that.
