I did that, too! Only I was hoping they'd back up!

It weighs like 4500 lbs, so it turns out it has around the same power/weight ratio as our old Volvo 850 Turbo wagon. A much less pronounced turbo note than that one, though.

I guess Chevy's version for saving fuel is their multi-displacement system (Dodge/Chrysler has a similar system) whereby it shuts down 4 cylinders under light load conditions - typically <55 mph on flat roads just cruising. With that our suburban get a similar 11/20 as well.

My focus ST has 250 HP - too fun to resist. I just wish the boost gauge showed negative pressure in addition to positive.

I'm really liking the whole Ford Ecoboost platform - all the vehicles I've rented with it performed really well and got pretty good gas mileage if you took it easy.
ymmv - really wink

I'd prefer a combination of the two systems, really. But hey, it's a really nice car and it has the oomph when it needs it.

Nice!!

Does it have AWD? The limited models are pretty sweet. How many miles on it?

It's AWD. It's got a bit under 40K.

How about a paper maché chauffeur hat?
