Yes We can....compete

videoThe notion that American automobile companies have been lining their pockets while companies like Toyota and others have been focused on new technology to draw buyers towards their products is somewhat true but Ford Motor Company has been laboring these past 2 years under new leadership and we will soon see the fruits of their labor. How about a 4 cylinder with a displacement of 2.o liters developing 275 horsepower and 280 ft lbs of torque! To give you some perspective most V8's in the 80's like General Motors 5.0 liter V8 had 240 horsepower and 265 lb ft of torque. So Ford has an engine less than half the size producing more horsepower and torque and this allows them to install it in every car they make. So in the video you can see what all of their efforts unleashes on the World Rally circuit. Awesome and gives me hope........

I've been a Ford buyers ever since they came out with the Ranger. They're good cars and trucks. If any company can come out of this economy intact they will.
