Hey it came in TOI ad that it had 250Nm of torque please cross check.

 

i dont rely heavily on newspaper details. coz sometimes they misquote..

kindly visit ford india's site and into media release section. anywayz i am copy pasting all the details here only.

otherwise also its not logical to launch a bigger engine with hardly any change in torque and power specs and that too with premium of around 3.0 lacs over 2.5 ltr.

Ride at the rear is horrible due to the leaf springs.Its like sitting in 2 different vehicles for the person at the front vis a vis the rear over undulated roads. I wonder why cant they iron out this and have independent coil springs. Increase cost ?
