An Alternative to German cars

2010 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl Turbo 6A)
Review
I wanted a full-sized car with AWD. The SHO was $20K+ less than the Germans. Traded in a 07 Avalon that I loved. The SHO is everything the Toyo is and more. The other reviews (SHOs) say it all but don't convey the feel of the car. Fully loaded with people and fuel it's almost 5000 lbs (!) but runs great. I love it. My wife has started using it more than her car.
Favorite Features
I use the body panel seams as a measure of build quality. They're all the same: small! Strong engine that always wants to give more. No turbo lag. The voice-activated navigator, blind-spots warnings, back-up sensors, rear view camera and cross-traffic radars are now must-haves.
Suggested Improvements
Bigger brakes to go with the more powerful engine and the spirited driving it inspires. Grill is too busy for my taste. Don't complain about the mileage: What would you expect with this engine and this car? How about a engine management system (computer) tweak to bring it up to 400 HP?
