did any late birds see the episode of the luxury "uphill" race, they ran 5 cars and saw where the new Lincoln stood up to the BMW, maserati, Mercedes, there was one more. i cant remember what it was.

Jaguar was the 5th. Makes me wonder if the Taurus SHO is any lighter than the MKS

Its supposed to show that the Ecoboost has the power of the V8 with the gas mileage of the V6. Essentially trying to bring to light how great turbocharging and direct injection are together. They do the test at 12,000 feet elevation lol, and guess what car is the ONLY one with F/I. You guessed it, the MKS.

that was neat, but when i watched the lincoln, there was some bobble, maybe if he didn't bobble it would've came up on top, could've been the road though.
