The weekend after the install of the Eaton M90 and initial test runs, I put my car on the Dyno to work out some of the pinging and bugs, as well as get a baseline power curve. Here it is on the rollers, peaking at around 250 horsepower and torque to the front wheels.
2013 Ford Taurus SHO Road Test
Can you drift a 2013 Ford Taurus SHO like Nascar racer Carl Edwards does in
the commercial? I tried and couldn't. This press car didn't have the ESC
button in the center console to disable the stability management system so
try as I might, the car would never get sideways.
I did however find out how great this car is at being a world class sedan.
Around town and in the canyons, this 4400 pound vehicle feels flat out
It's also pretty fast, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds will get your attention and the
immensely capable all wheel drive system, huge brakes and fantastic
suspension will keep it.
I'll go on record for loving the eco-Boost engine platform. The 3.5L Twin turbo V6 is only mildly laggy at the low end but
more than makes up for that once it starts to rev. The practical side is
that you could use all 365 horsepower in this car and
still manage fuel mileage in the mid 20's and then on the highway settle in
at about 30 MPG.
Would I own one, heck yes...as long as it had that ESC button in the center
console to disable the stability management systems so that I could four
wheel drift the tires off the thing.

Help us grow so we can bring you more videos! Like us on Facebook @
http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline The current generation SHO is still the
stop light sleeper it always was. Those who remember the original may miss
its high revving Yamaha built engine and manual transmission. We think a
viable replacement for the SHO nameplate would be better served using the
current Fusion platform.
Spotted a SHO in Mexico! High speed roll
Here's a video of a fast Ford Taurus SHO with a Supercharger making mid 450hp. I'm recording in my
friends Evo that got Dyno'd around 440hp. We did a
few runs out there and low end seems that we had the edge and higher rolls
the SHO proved too much!

2013 Ford Taurus SHO EcoBoost Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/taurus/2013/sho-awd/?id=32972 The 2013 Ford
Taurus SHO is a comfortable cruiser with a mean bite. This full-sized sedan
packs 365 horsepower while getting
good fuel economy numbers. The SHO is the top of the line Taurus model
packed with all the features and options that Ford could cram into this
vehicle. The base price on the Taurus SHO is $39,200 and there are really
no other vehicles in this segment that can match the performance at this
The 2013 Ford Taurus SHO is powered by a twin-turbo 3.5 liter V-6 EcoBoost engine that gives the power of a V-8
with the fuel economy of a V-6. This engine also features direct injection
which sprays fuel directly into the cylinder; which in turn gives you
optimal performance with lower emissions. The power output is 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of
torque. The 6-speed automatic transmission features steering wheel mounted
shifters. Power is put down to the ground through an AWD system that uses
Torque Vectoring which keeps the car in control by applying brake pressure
between the front and rear wheels. This not only keep the passengers safe
and the drive in control but it also allows the Taurus SHO to hug corners.
On the outside the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO gets a couple of updates over the
previous model. There are new projector beam headlights with daytime
running LED lights that make a real visual impact. The SHO model gets a
unique piano-black mesh grille with chrome accent pieces. Also exclusive to
the SHO model is the sporty and functional rear spoiler that increases
downforce. Underneath the full-size sedan lives a true dual Exhaust system that not only aids in the
performance department; but it also looks and sounds cool. 19-inch aluminum
rims are standard on the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO model but you can upgrade to
either 20-inch machined or 20-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in high
On the inside the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO sports Multi-contour seats with
active motion which give the front passengers a lower back and upper leg
message. These leather trimmed units have both a heating and cooling
mechanism built in. The push button start is a must for any technologically
advanced sedan. The instrument cluster features a speedometer in the middle
surrounded by a LCD screen on each side that is customizable to display the
information that is most important to the driver. Both the steering wheel
and the voice activated SYNC system can control the radio, phone,
navigation, climate controls, and more. The stereo system features 12
speakers located throughout the interior of the car and HD Radio is
standard on the SHO. All of the technology in the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO is
easily within reach.
