2013 Ford Taurus SHO EcoBoost Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/taurus/2013/sho-awd/ The 2013 Ford Taurus SHO
is a comfortable cruiser with a mean bite. This full-sized sedan packs 365
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 price point.
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.

2010 stock Taurus SHO 0-100 mph
This was performed on a closed road. Just to show how faster the car is when there is traction. I
calculated at least half a second or even more than at the track just a few
minutes before... I wish the 1/4 mile track would be made of normal
asphalt with no slippery concrete box. Even stock, I calculate a 1/4 mile
under 13 seconds... What do you think? Compare with my other video of
13.56 or 13.61 where my tires are spinning until 60-70 km/h... Well, well,
I guess it's the same for everyone right? Still... Enjoy and please
