2013 Ford Taurus SHO Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO.
"SHO" or "S-H-O" designates "Super High Output" and represents the twin turbo V6 under the hood. V8 power with V6
MSRP pricing for the Taurus, before options, starts at:
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

2013 Ford Taurus SHO Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive

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.

Taurus SHO vs 2002 TL Type S Acura. SHO is bone stock with 155,000 miles
and the Acura has just a Cold Air intake.
2013 Ford Taurus SHO review - Autoweek Drives
For 2013, Ford not only freshened the Taurus with a new grille, fascia and
reworked rear end—including updated LED taillights—but the high-end SHO
model is fortified with a Performance pack. Roger Hart gives us his take on
this performance package.
For a written account of Roger's time with the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO:
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.
