Can Ford vehicles actually go 80 mph?

http://tech.yahoo.com/news/ap/200810...d_teen_drivers

Why limit the speed to 80 mph? Is that not the already top speed of all Ford vehicles aside from the Mustang?

Yes.

We have two 1983 5.0 Mustangs that totally haul @$$ on the highway.

We're in Canada, so we go by kilometers per hour. 80 mph is roughly 128 kph.

That's an easy task. Hands down. Heck...my first car was a tiny 4 banger Hyundai Scoup, and that little sucker could go 120 kph (about 74 mph).

My brother had an old F150...and that thing could haul it's weight as well. It had no problem reaching 80 mph, and beyond.

is this a serious question? did you read the article you sited?

of course ALL fords can go over 80 mph.

hell, a fiesta can reach 80mph and that car isn't worth $900 in pristine condition.

the article is talking about speed limiting the cars using a chip so teens don't kill themselves for being idiots on the road. racing and what not.
It's basically a parent for when you are not with your parent.
I can not think of one single ford made from 1980 to present that can not reach 80mph with ease.

Nissan's cars go even faster the Altima with the CVT Transmission can go about 110 or 120 mph tops besides the 350Z it goes even faster!
