According to Ford, “the Interceptor comes equipped with a manual six-speed gearbox mated to a Ford Racing 5.0-liter V-8 Cammer engine that delivers 400 horsepower and runs on E-85 ethanol. It is a powerful sedan that draws on the cues of one of last year’s big hits for Ford at Detroit’s auto show.” We weren’t able to so much as pay lip service to most of those under-hood thoroughbreds, but the Cammer engine is a winner in other applications, and we see no reason why it wouldn’t shine here.

I realize TAG already said this. But don't become too "New Thread" button-happy. It's as much a pain to everyone else as it is to TAG, we have to review all the threads, because we have no lives.

It's too...IDK, actually!! It's got an attractiveness to it, but in a bland way, if that makes sense...

I like it...did I just say that about a Ford?....LOL....

I like it enough to say with some tweaks it would be a real nice looking car. Maybe it's the grill, maybe it just needs a little less chrome....I don't know for sure, but it's definitely got potential and it could easily become production ready.

If Ford can tweak it right, they have themselves a nice looking full-size car that should continue their large-car market dominance.

Shoot, with that long hood, they could drop their V-10 in there, crease the bodywork a little bit, change out wheels, upgrade the interior and create one hell of a new Lincoln to compete in the big luxury car market.

I love the color too, that blue is awesome....looks good with the chrome wheels too....
