Yay! Looks in good condition too. It is a third generation (1992 to 1994) Mercuty Topaz LTS sedan. The side molding was LTS/XR5.

How does the '92 to '94 count as a separate generation than the earlier model with the chrome grille? That's like saying the '94-'95 Taurus is a different generation than '92-'93 because it has body colored door handles!

Not all were exterior changes. New engine (3.0L Vulcan V6), revised headlights and grill, new packages and options and different tailights and other things. Its classified as a seperate generation by most websites, like TempoTopaz.com

So? The Taurus got a new engine in '88 (the 3.8L V6) and '89 (the 3.0L 24v Yamaha), but that hardly calls for a new generation. Same for a trim level change in '98. They also got new front fascias (headlights, grille, bumpers) and taillights in '89, '98, and '04 (which are all in the middle of their respective generations, but same body style respectively). To me, there are only two generations of Tempo/Topaz.

To you, but not to me and not to all of my resources. And thats the Taurus, not the Tempo.

Changing generations are problematic for most car freaks. Chevy Nova fans always argue over whether '66-'67 Novas are second generation or part of the first generation, and this leads to the argument over whether the '68-'72 Novas are second or third generation. Even more, there is discussion over whether the '73-'74 Novas are the same generation as the '68-'72 or an entirely new generation. It's all very confusing.

I gota back Qwerty on this Explorer4x4. I'll give you another example. Take a look at the front of a 96/7 Ford Taurus...then a 98/9. Yea they look different up front, but the only difference between a 97 and a 98 was the front bumper and the rear tail-lights aesthetically. That doesn't mean I'm going to call the 96/7 a Gen 3 and the 98/99 a Gen 4...a Gen 4 is a 00-2007 (that rental car, conservative style).

Even Tempo-Topaz says outright and I quote: "This year, FoMoCo updated the styling of the two cars to match the trend of the entire car line. Most of the body panels remained the same. There were new bumper designs, new grilles, new taillight designs on the 4-doors, and revised bodyside moldings. To cap it off, a fully integrated ground effects package was standard on the sport models. "

That hardly qualifies for a "third" generation...but whatever.

I would say this is a Topaz GS, theres nothing you can see on the car that denotes an LTS.
