I'm kinda fantasizing what she'd do with a twin-turbo upgrade and a new tune.

Probably eat the tranny, lol

I'm 85% sure I'm getting a sho, probably Beginning of next year.

Issue is I need to replace my 05 gtp. It's serves daily duties, mainly in winter. But problem is is it won't die. 212k. Been totalled 2x. Still rolls on. My other cars I'm looking at are G8GTs. But to make a 2 year production run car a winter daily isn't the smartest thing to do.. sho has AWD, more power, and parts availability...

The AWD was the big seller for me. I wanted something I could drive in the winter. My car was an 06 Malibu, and while we got our money's worth out of it, it needs new tires, alignment, and a headgasket replaced, and at 200k I wasn't really willing to rely on it anymore. Good local beater, but not a DD.

Looking good! These Ecoboost motors are simply crazy. Just picked up a '16 Explorer Sport and I think it's pretty snappy for being 100% stock.

It's crazy how much these newer platforms gain from a tune only.

Poor visibility only trumped by the late model Camaro....

I love it, very comfortable. My only complaint is the wide console. The roof has low clearance so if you're 6' 2" or taller I'd try to find one without a moon roof. Other than that, by far the nicest sedan I've ever ridden in.
