Performance fans disappointed by the lack of flair applied by Blue Oval designers on the latest 2010 Ford Taurus SHO may soon be able to sing another song. A facelifted version of the car, due in 2012, will reportedly feature more overt styling to help distinguish it from the more run-of-the-mill Taurus models.
Looking at the 2010 Taurus currently in showrooms, the only giveaways that this is a special model are the unique wheels, a tiny bootlid spoiler, silver highlights around the LED located in the front bumper, and small “SHO” badges.
According to one Ford insider, the automaker is considering making the SHO’s look more distinct in the future. No details have been revealed other than the car will be sporting some new wheels and some “significant” changes. As for a release date, the insider explained that Ford will have to wait until at least 2012 as any earlier date would make it appear as though the company is trying to fix up a mistake with the original design.
Hopefully, Ford’s engineers will also get a chance to address the car’s lifeless steering and puny brakes.
