The 3.0 Yamaha V6 was a front-wheel drive configuration in a Taurus. There was also a 2.5 V6 in the Mercury Mystique and the Ford Contour, both FWD. Ford produced a Taurus SHO from '89 to '99 and I have also seen a Contour SHO.
The Thunderbird Turbo Coupe was a turbocharged SOHC 2.3, 4-cyl in a rear wheel drive configuration.
