NINETY EIGHT REGENCY

1984 Ford Tempo Promotional videos

Recommended Posts

Cars of the 80s had excellent aerodynamics and modern styling, this allowed them to slip through the air better than today's cars, which increased tow capacity.  I believe the Tempo could only tow single axle trailers, due to roadability factors of the independent suspension and 4 cylinder engine.  If you opt for the Ford LTD V6 however, tow capacity is around 10,000 lbs I believe.

 Ford LTD had that old I6 tractor engine, so that's probably why it could tow so well.

The Tempo was an awful, nasty little car, but it did have more style than the Fairmont it replaced.
