Well, it has been a month or so since I took delivery of my FX4ECO and the wife has noticed how much I have enjoyed driving the truck and the performance of the Eco. She even brought it to my attention that I have not offered her the opportunity to drive the new truck.

A year and a half ago we purchased a new tuxedo black 2012 Taurus Limited loaded out for her. Yesterday the Sales Manager from the local dealer called and mentioned that the rebates had just gone up on the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO. So, we went up and did a couple of test drives. One in Tuxedo Black the other in that Tri-color metallic White. The difference between the two other than color is that the black has the adaptive cruise control (which the current Limited also has) and the white SHO has the Performance Pkg (higher speed rated tires, firmer sport suspension, lower geared drive ratio, suede leather heated steering wheel). I must say that the performance package does make a huge difference in the handling and performance of he SHO.

So the dilemma is, whether to spend the $16,659.00 trade difference out the door to put Mama in an Ecoboost? I know, a Happy Mama usually means a Happy Papa....right?

My Son called this morning on his way into work (did I mention that the Sales Manager who called was my Son?). I told him to get the windows tinted on the white SHO, top the tank, a quick detail and call me when it's ready to roll.

Looks like we are going to be a Two Eco Couple by days end.

Time to go dust off the Nomad and slap a For Sale sign on it.
Which is find, I've put less than 25 miles on it since I purchased it 5 months ago. Just love driving the Mustang GT convert more top down than the ride of the bike.

I have two eco-beasts in my garage, it's a good site to see :) A Focus ST (turbo) and FX4 (twin-turbo).

If my SO said she wanted to trade her 08 Mercury Mariner on a new Eco (this would NEVER happen) I'd be the first to sign...bet the new SHO is a beauty sitting in the driveway! And white is nice too.
