Regular "He Drove, She Drove columnists Paul and Anita Lienert leave their quipping at home and provide a thoroughly detailed and professional take on the all new Ford Five Hundred. The first impressions are surprisingly positive as the two position the Five Hundred as a solid competitor for the Chrysler 300. While the highly "refined" styling is most likely worlds above and beyond the current state of Ford sedans there is only one engine choice, a 203-hp DOHC V6. While that doesn't come close to competing with the 300C's Hemi but does outmuscle the base 300 and is comparable to the Toyota Camry as well. I'm most impressed with the base AWD model's price of $24, 495. An affordable AWD sedan could sell big up north and most of Ford's customers probably won't mind it's styling.
