The optional 3.3-liter (200-cubic-inch) inline pushrod six engine made 87 horsepower and 154 pound-feet, which was better than the 86 hp/117 lb-ft offered by the base "Pinto" 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. The real Granada high rollers paid for the 3.8-liter V6, good for a mighty 112 horses.
The 1982 Granada was more or less the same car as the 1982 Fairmont/Zephyr, but with a hint of additional style and luxury.
In 1982, a Granada L sedan with the I6 engine listed at $7,925 (about $20,600 in 2017 dollars), compared to $6,419 for a four-cylinder Fairmont sedan.
Although just about all the performance tricks applicable to the Fox Mustang can be used on the Fox Granada, even a rust-free example like this isn't worth much more than scrap value.
By 1983, the American Granada name was gone, presumably forever. In Europe, however, the Granada name lived on (with a completely unrelated platform) through 1994.
Complete with 1955-industrial-film music and a forced sense of optimism, Ford pitched the "beautifully new" Granada as "built for a changing world."
Look out world, here comes Ford!
