Wheelbase: 108.7 inches
Length: 185.8 inches
Engine: 4-liter, 32-valve, 282-h.p., V-8
Transmission: 6-speed manual
EPA mileage: 14 m.p.g. city/23 m.p.g. highway
Pluses: Dual air bags and ABS standard, traction control available as an option. The 4-liter is super quick, yet quiet. The 6-speed is very smooth. The suspension is a dream.
Minuses: You may never pass a gas station that the 4-liter doesn't like. The seats are a bit stiff. The front seat headrests are too large and obstruct side and rear vision. The rear seat isn't all that roomy. Because there are no autobahns in Illinois, how about just one cupholder, please?
