rwd Taurus

By Erik S.

Taurus should be made a rear wheel drive car for a couple reasons, one to balance the weight of the car better, two to be able to make a 8 speed automatic to fit behind the engines in the Taurus which would yield better fuel mileage and performance. The SHO is a nice performing car, but at 4500lbs its very heavy and in terms of fuel mileage, isn't that great compared to other cars in similar comparison (Dodge Charger 5.7, Chevy Caprice 6.2). Doing a rear wheel drive SHO would not only shave alot of weight over an AWD setup, it would increase fuel mileage, performance, and would be able to increase the power of the motor to F-150 specs or greater due to a stronger drivetrain.
