    Saw a write up of Ford's new SUV/wagon. Sounds a lot like a Pacifica but
    incredibly they are putting in a 200 hp engine to lug around 6 or 7
    passengers. And people complain about Pacifica's lack of power.

    How much torque, and what is the area under the torque curve? How is it
    geared? How efficient is the transmission? How much does the vehicle

    200HP is adequate to drag around a semi-trailer full o' Twinkies, given all
    the other factors are correct for the application.

    We live in a funny world, don't we? When I got my driver's license,
    Corvettes had 200 hp. And that was a big improvement over the 160 or
    whatever they had in the late 70's. Now people bitch that a 200hp is not
    enough for a front drive grocery getter? I don't see too many soccer moms at
    the drag strip.

    I believe it will have a continuously variable transmission.

    I believe a variation of that same Duratec engine is used in the Type X
    Jaguars. And more than likely the Pacifica isn't much more if any than what
    Ford has. The Toyota Highlander has the same V6 engine as the Camry, the
    base engine in the Dodge Caravan was the same 4 cyl engine in the PT
    Cruiser. So it's entirely possible that the Ford engine will do as well as
    any others on the market in similar vehicles.

    The original base Caravan engine was the 2.2L 83 hp engine.
