Is it underpowered the 2 litre? I have a 2.2 0mega 4 cylinder, and it's seriously underpowered compared to the V6 Omega.

Summary:

Probably the best on-road driving dynamics of any 4X4 in it's class

Faults:

Absolutely nothing.

General Comments:

This really is an excellent car particularly for on road driving. It's very quick (for a 4X4) and it is extremely smooth and quite. I've read one report that claimed that the Maverick has lack lustre performance and is not fun to drive, but quite frankly I don't believe that this particular test driver had even seen a new 3.0 litre Maverick, let alone driven one. It is enormous fun to drive and it goes like a rocket!
