The MPG argument for the Vulcan engine doesn't hold water. A newer design w/ less friction and more efficient cyl. heads would do better and have more HP. Plus, its the mass of the car that determines most of the MPG. Ford was just a greedy, poorly run co. as were the other US marks. I've met some of the high execs. at F. and GM and I was totally underwhelmed. NWIH should these clowns be in the ranks of upper mgmnt. at a top-tier co.
