1983-1985 FORD Sierra XR4i specifications


After the conservative Cortinas the radically-styled Sierra took some while to gain general acceptance. Eventually though they caught the public’s imagination, helped in no small part by models like the XR4i, the first of the performance-orientated Sierras. It used a tuned version of Ford’s fuel-injected 2994cc V6 engine along with a restyled version of the three-door bodyshell – with slightly bizarre multi-pillared rear windows – and made sure it caught any attention going with its prominent double rear spoiler.
