2013 Ford Taurus SHO

The Most Fun You Can Have In A Full-Size, All-Weather American The American full-size segment isn't an overly welcoming place for those of us who worship at the altar of skinny-pedal antics. While European automakers are happy to deliver their customers a raft of monolithic luxury barges with Saturn V levels of thrust, We The People have been largely left with coma-inducing hardware like the Cadillac DTS, Chevrolet Impala and Lincoln MKS.

    2013 Ford Taurus SHO looks better, but no bump in power [w/video]
    1303254720

    Those of you hoping for a 400-horsepower Ford Taurus SHO are about to be severely disappointed. The 2013 Taurus SHO will continue to produce 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque from its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. Sure, that's still plenty of oomph for the SHO, but with rumors of a higher-output version now dashed, all we can say is, "shucks." Let's ...

    We didn't expect much from Ford's new fulls-size four-door at this year's SEMA show, but the quartet of Taurus Concepts were actually pretty impressive. The design lends itself better to customization than we might've thought, and we wouldn't be surprised to see quite a few owners personalizing the look of their cars. The favorite Taurus around the ...

    Super High Output. That moniker, shortened to the SHO acronym, has always had special meaning to fans of the original groundbreaking Ford Taurus. Now, those three letters take a greener tint as they signify that the latest version of Ford's mainstream family sedan has been granted the Blue Oval's new EcoBoost technology.

These spy shots show a pair of serious looking Taurus sedans snapped along the I-75 corridor in Michigan Florida (the greenish grass and lack of snow suggest they weren't taken recently). These two sedans are different from the Limited and SES ...
