(2005 model shown)
Ford's old-school full-size rear-drive sedan continues for at least one more year in its present form. A 224-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine remains under the hood and is fitted to a four-speed-automatic transmission. Inside, there's ample room for six adult passengers, and more than enough trunk space for their luggage or a full foursome's worth of golf bags. An available handling package boosts engine power to an ample 239 horses by virtue of a dual exhaust system. For 2006, an in-glass antenna replaces the prior exterior mast, a trip computer becomes newly standard on LX and LX Sport models, the LX receives revised 16-inch nine-spoke wheels, a perimeter alarm is added to the options list and a new color, Tungsten Clearcoat Metallic, is added.
