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.

Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.
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.

2013 Ford Taurus vs Chrysler 300 S AWD Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ford Taurus and the Chrysler 300 S both
have V-6 engines, both seat 5 passengers and both have all-wheel-drive.
They also both and recently redesigned big American family sedans. In fact
to call this video Mashup Review is a stretch as both cars compete directly
with each other. Perhaps the biggest difference between the two cars is
that the Chrysler has 4 more horsepower at 292 versus the
Ford's 288 HP. So the obvious question is which of these two cars is
better. Check out this video "Mashup" to find out.

2013 Ford Flex EcoBoost Car Video & Crossover Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/flex/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Ford Flex is a
crossover vehicle that has won the hearts of many owners out there. Part
car, part van, and part station wagon; the Flex is full of surprises. Can
any other station wagon haul seven people and all their gear with over 365
are 3 different trim levels starting with the SE which costs $30,885, the
SEL which costs $33,225, up to the Limited EcoBoost AWD which costs $43,850.
There is quite a big gap there but the 3 different trims come in either FWD
or AWD configurations. The SE and SEL are powered by a 3.5 Liter V-6 that
pushes 285 horsepower while getting 18
MPG in the city and 25MPG on the highway. Step up to the twin-turbocharged V-6 EcoBoost engine with AWD will cost you a few
miles per gallon (16 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway), but you
get 365 horsepower
and 350 lb-ft. of torque in return.
The 3rd row seating features a 50/50 split folding bench. The 2013 Ford
Flex is quite versatile and there is a ton of cargo room with over 80 cubic
feet of storage space. The doors are large enough to make entering and
exiting the vehicle a breeze. There is a lot of legroom for adults. Also
the Flex can be purchased with all the Ford technology available like Voice
Activated Navigation to the SYNC in-car connectivity system.
On the outside there is no mistaking the 2013 Ford Flex with any old
crossover or station wagon. The styling is bold and Ford took some risks
with the interesting grille up front, chrome accents, and the grooved door
panels that run down the side of the Flex. The two-tone paint gives the
Flex a modern throw-back feel. The large 20-inch aluminum wheels make a
visual statement. The 2013 Ford Flex is definitely one of the coolest
crossover cruisers out there.

2013 Ford Taurus Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/taurus/2013/?id=32972 The Ford Taurus dates
all the way back to the 1986 model year. Over the past 25 years the Taurus
has had its ups and downs. When the Japanese mid-sized sedans starting
winning the sales war, Ford shifted their attention to SUVs. And the Taurus
was eventually discontinued being replaced at the mid-size level by the
Fusion and at the full-size level by the Ford 500. Well now the Taurus is
back and better than ever. The 6th generation debuted in 2010 and has now
received a refresh for the 2013 model year. There are 4 different trim
levels including the base SE which costs $26,600, the SEL which costs
$28,800, the Limited which costs $33,000, and the SHO which costs $39,200
and is reviewed elsewhere.
The 2013 Ford Taurus is a full-sized sedan that was given a mean and sharp
look that follows Ford's new design direction. Up front the grille,
projector headlights, and LED running lights really grab your attention.
The Taurus has a wide stance at over 76-inches which give this sedan a
comfortable ride. Out back the 2013 Ford Taurus features an integrated
spoiler on the trunk, and a chrome-tipped dual Exhaust system. Depending on the trim level
there are a couple of different wheel packages. The SE trim gets 17-inch
rims, the SEL trim gets 18-inch rims, and the Limited gets 19-inch rims.
There is an option to upgrade to large 20-inch polished aluminum wheels.
The 2013 Ford Taurus comes in both FWD and AWD configurations. There are 3
different engine to choose from. The base engine is a 3.5 liter V-6 that
makes 288 horsepower and 254 lb-ft. of
torque. This engine has a 6-speed automatic and gets 19 MPG in the city and
29 MPG on the highway. The second engine is a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that makes 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of
torque. This smaller displacement engine gets the best gas mileage at 22
MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway. The top of the line engine is a
twin-turbo 3.5 liter found on the SHO
model. You can learn more about that engine by watching our review of the
Taurus SHO below.
On the inside the Taurus gives you a premium interior with lots of
technology and passenger amenities. The seats are high quality leather and
feature power adjustable controls with both heating and cooling option.
Even the rear seats have a heater function which is usually reserved for
vehicles in the high end luxury category. The 2013 Ford Taurus is packed
with many technological options like HD Radio, ambient lighting, Adaptive
Cruise Control, MyKey, SYNC, and MyFord Touch to name a few.
