May Contain boring material: 355hp Ford Taurus On Its Way

Ford may release a 355hp Twin turbo Ecodrive version of the new Taurus. Looks like the American company have been doing some homework.

I'm really interested in what this Eco Line of engines can do. Hopefully they can drastically improve the mpg over that 300 V8 motor they've been hung on for 15years.

Its simple physics. Fewer cylinders, less displacement, less fuel used.

In defense of Ford, so far they haven't actually taken any government money yet. Unlike GM and Chrysler.
