    <br> The ’95s got a mild facelift, “gullwing” taillights, revised climate controls and newly standard rear defroster, heated door mirrors, a radio antenna embedded in the rear window, a “battery-saver” feature, and displays for outside temperature and “gallons to empty.” Even with all these additions, base price was comfortably below $25,000. Outside was…a disappointment. Though every body panel was new save the doors, the ’92 was hard to tell at a glance from previous Tauruses — as critics loved to point out. Base prices remained very attractive, rising no higher than the low $12,000s. At least it was cheap, and that combined with more efficient production in Mexico as well as Michigan to make for very low list prices: $7976 for the stark three-door Pony to more than $11 grand for the GT. All this plus starting prices in the low $20,000s lit a fire under Crown Victoria sales, which jumped past 152,000 for 1992, the highest since ’85<br>>
    <br>> Begun in 1992, this offered any of the four LX models with several popular options for just $10,899 with five-speed manual transmission or $11,631 with optional four-speed automatic. And, of course, either could drive through an optional four-speed automatic. SHO pricing remained unusually steady in these years, but neither that nor the automatic was much help to sales. Sales remained strong despite the yearly sameness. Served as the Webmaster for this ISP, responsible for design of corporate identity, packaging, sales and support materials in addition to Web design. A new all-Ford design optional on lesser Contours, this engine made 170 spirited horses — enough for Consumer Guide®’s five-speed car to charge from 0 to 60 mph in just 8.9 seconds. With competitors pushing hard, the basic ’86 design was now in need of an update, so Ford spent a cool $650 million to give it one. Later, Ford didn’t need such tricks to comply with CAFE, so parts and labor were re-sourced to make the Crown Vic truly “American” again. Incidentally, the Crown Vic became an “import” for a few years in the early ’90s, built north of the border with a high level of Canadian content<br>>
    <br>> As an “import,” the Crown Vic counted in Ford’s non-domestic CAFE along with the tiny South Korean-built Festiva, whose really high mileage more than offset the big car’s. So was the LTD name — but also the Crown Vic wagon, Ford having concluded that minivans and sport-utility vehicles had now largely replaced traditional full-size wagons in buyer affections. Ford modernized two more of its cars for 1992. First up was a replacement for something even older than the original Escort: the big, vintage ’79 Crown Victoria. Soldiering on with few evident differences from one year to the next, Highly recommended Resource site Ford’s front-drive compact tended to get lost in the great gray mass of Detroit market-fillers that you were more apt to rent on vacation than put in your driveway. Ford’s other 1992 freshening involved the top-selling Taurus. An interesting ’95 variation was the SE (Sport Edition) sedan, a kind of budget SHO delivering alloy wheels, rear spoiler, sport front seats, and other extras for about $18-grand with base 3.0-liter V-6 or just under $20,000 with the punchier 3.8. Interestingly, the smaller “Vulcan” V-6 got some needed NVH improvements in preparation for the all-new second-generation Taurus. That left a four-door sedan with airy “six-light” roofline in base and uplevel LX trim; a sportier Touring Sedan was added in the fall<br>>
    <br>> With base stickers straddling $25,000, the top-line Taurus still faced competition from a host of formidable foreign sports sedans and usually suffered by comparison. Still, this was the closest America had yet come to an affordable European-style sports sedan. Originally, Saturn vehicles were to be sold by Chevrolet, starting with a front-drive four-door sedan somewhat smaller than a contemporary Chevy Cavalier. Critics raved. Road & Track called Contour “a giant step forward in the compact sedan arena.” Car and Driver termed it “stunningly satisfying.” Those verdicts came from road tests of the top-line SE model and its 2.5-liter “Duratec” V-6. In the United States, open cast mining is usually called open-pit or open-cut mining. Called Contour, it was another stab at a “world car,” born of “Ford 2000” thinking as an Americanized version of the year-old European Mondeo. GL and midlevel LX models came with another new engine: a 2.0-liter multivalve twincam four called “Zetec,” an outgrowth of Ford Europe’s recently introduced “Zeta” family of small, high-efficiency powerplants. So did a string of recalls and launch glitches involving the new Escape, 2001 Thunderbird, redesigned ’02 Explorer, and the small Focus, Ford’s latest attempt at a “world car.” Other new models like the Lincoln LS and sister Jaguar S-Type didn’t sell as expected<br>>
