About

My Car!!!!!!! He He
Under the hood, Taurii can be had with a choice of 3.0 liter V6 engines, a reliable overhead-valve (OHV) motor whose origins date back to the Eighties, and the high-tech 24-valve "Duratec." We drove the base OHV motor, and have this recommendation: Get the much smoother, 200 horsepower Duratec. The OHV V6 is just a bit underpowered in this 3,336-lb car. It sounds old and labored under acceleration, and freeway on-ramps were a bit of a struggle. Even the salesman thought so, and tried to steer me into the "peppier 24-valve model. This car lacks get up and go, because it's only a 16-valve," he pointed out. It took several minutes of arguing with him before I could explain to him that the OHV engine couldn't possibly be a 16-valve motor, since it had six cylinders (automobile engines generally have two or four valves per cylinder).
