Miles per pound (mpp)
|Reliable fuel consumption data for comparison purposes is not available for this model.|
Well it's much cheaper than a Bentley, but otherwise not a good choice for those on a budget. The V8 engine makes it thirstier and pushes the insurance category up considerably. Worst of all on the used market it is valued little higher than other 75s so depreciation is pretty steep.
With its large petrol engines and an average fuel consumption figure of just 21mpg, it's no surprise that 75 performs so badly on the eco front. It emits 319 g/km CO2, which is quite high, even for a luxury saloon. Fortunately, buyers of these sorts of cars tend to do fewer miles per year than those that own average family cars.
As yet there are no reports of problems with the Ford engine, indeed this is a common unit in America where unreliability is not tolerated. Also its pretty unstressed so we really wouldn't expect much in the way of problems. However it does require oil changes every 5000 miles (with service intervals every 15,000 miles).
