these engine achieve approximately 20-percent better fuel efficiency and 15-percent reduced greenhouse emissions than the same engines that are not ecoboost

For that price you could have a Raptor with cash to spare.

Hell ya

I like the idea of the twin turbo and features, but that Raptor is sweet

My wife saw the new Taurus and she is getting ideas in her head. She says time we pay the car off they will have some used ones on lots and would make a family car.
