Try pulling a boat with a damn Passat and watch the unibody frame crumble around you while the 190HP 2.8 liter V6 strains and moans to gather speed.

You need that car James Bond has. It may look like an ordinary car, but once you hit the water it converts into a high powered boat. Cool stuff.

LOL! ;)



<< The Envoy looks like a piece of overdone Pontiac sh!t. >>



Hey that Pontiac looks cool as hell. What's so wrong with it?

And to clarify, I meant that the 190HP V6 felt more powerful than the power ratings give it. If you don't believe me go to for a review of the Bravada! www.carpoint.com (I can't get the friggin links to work)

Actually those figures arn't really that fantastic for a 4.2 litre engine, NSF4

The Ford Falcon 4 litre in-line 6 has 172KW@5500revs, which works out to be 230BHP, which works out to be about 260HP (SAE), Plus the block on that engine goes all the way back to the original 1960 Ford Falcon.

The thing I don't like about new engines is that you open the hood, and it's a plumber's nightmare. Since I'm into the mechanics of an engine, I'd much rather work on your average 1600cc air cooled VW bug engine :) Much more interesting to me, for some reason ...


Although, I admit .. Raw power is .. *tim allen grunt*
