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.

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

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.

2013 Ford Taurus Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/taurus/2013/ 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
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

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.

2013 Ford Taurus SHO Drive Impression
The 2013 Ford Taurus SHO is another car we took out on the streets of
Portland Oregon. With the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 engine, six-speed select shift
(through the paddles) and 365 horsepower, this vehicle can
really get up and go. The sound system by Sony, the heated steering wheel,
the 5 button joystick to control the MyFord Touch system, and the shiatsu
massage for your butt all help keep you relaxed inside.
