      We had an '86 Trooper with the slightly more powerful 2.3-liter. It knocked the 0-60 time down to 20 seconds. It was fine most of the time, but merging into fast traffic kind of sucked and it could not maintain 70 MPH up grades on the highway, despite a running start and full throttle.

      Growing up with this thing I think is why I'm so tolerant of cars that do 0-60 in 8-10 seconds. Basically if it can maintain speed up a grade without downshifting, or even accelerate, it feels fine to me.

      Yeah the troopers were pokey but they were decent little trucks back in the day.

      really bad video quality....



      I wonder what we would consider the modern new SER.
      Fiesta ST? Seems a bit pricey though.
      1.4 turbo Sonic RS?

      Yeah- I saw that too.
      Probably just a pre-production model issue.
      There is an obvious damage/scrape mark at that area... maybe somebody used a heavy duty cleaner that removed the paint.

      That whole video felt like a "what's new for 86" Ford dealer video.
