  • 2013 Ford Taurus SHO

    A car that does it all: hauls the family, gets you to work, and happily handles, even excels at, a weekend track day. That's kind of the holy grail for many car enthusiasts. Ford thinks the 2013 Taurus SHO Performance Package is that car. While the back seat in the new Taurus is a bit tight, and it's a heavy car in performance terms, but the 365-horsepower 3.5-liter turbocharged V-6 engine is just right. The Performance Package upgrades the cooling, brakes, steering, traction control, and suspension to be track-worthy without being punishing on the street, according to Ford. What do you...

  • 2013 Ford Taurus SHO

    Ford’s reintroduced for 2010 Taurus SHO was already a very capable sedan, coming with 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque and a 0-60 mph time of around 6.0 seconds. In fact, the EcoBoosted V-6 SHO was even able to hold its own against a V-8 powered Audi A6, as you’ll see by clicking here, so the latest 2013 model making its debut this week at the 2011 New York Auto Show must be really something special. It gets improved dynamics, bigger brakes and a more refined look that draws some influences from the Mustang. The Taurus SHO has always been a ‘sleeper’ and for...
