2003 Ford Thunderbird

The 2003 Ford Thunderbird continues to impress right where the well-awarded 2002 model left off.  A powerful 3.9-liter V8 engine gives the little car ample pep, and with the convertible top down, the ride is fun.

The engine is rated at 280 horsepower, which is needed to propel the compact yet heavy (2-ton) car. Gas mileage is as expected, around 20mpg on city and highway combined.  

The 2003 Thunderbird is loaded with the extras and styling you would expect from a luxury vehicle.
