There are very few if any vehicles out
there that can evoke a visceral feeling
when you put the pedal to the metal.
The first time I got on this baby my
heart skipped a beat and I felt it all
the way down my spine. An econo box
with a hood scoop just doesn't do it
for me and never will. Give me a big
bad American V8 pushin 300 hp with
Big tires , chromed out wheels, dual
Darker tinted windows from the
factory, lose the bulbous shifter for
something Hurst like. Something
cosmetic around the hood displaying
V8, DBLOHC 4.6L, Old GTO mini scoop.
It's about time someone built a fun car
for big people. I'm 6'2" and don't fit
in any of the Hondas, Nissans or
Toyotas.This big Merc has it all.
Power, handling, braking and fun to
drive. I missed out on the last Impala
but I drove a couple. Glad I waited for
the Maurader. It's build quality is
much better and it handles better and
Power, handling, comfort and on the
road gas mileage.
More powerful, XFM or SIRIUS capable
Handles well, no slop in the steering
and no "floating" in curves or on bumpy
roads. It is slow off the mark but
quickly picks up once the tach reaches
3000. It has the quiet ride that you'd
expect from Ford and the leather seats
are quite luxurious.
Steering and handling, especially at
high speeds (120mph+)
