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 nimble.
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.
Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake - 750 Horsepower ROAD TEST
I was lucky enough to get the keys to this awesome car and wanted to share
my quick blast up this canyon road with any fellow gear heads. I'm just
your average car lover that happened upon this great opportunity to wheel
one of the fastest production Mustangs ever made! Chevy, Mopar or
Ford guys should appreciate this car...750 horsepower in a production
street car is flat-out cool. Unfortunately my lack of skills don't do this
car justice on the road...but this video will give you a taste of the
immense power, ferocious sounds and sexy yet menacing looks of this
American muscle car.
Check out the other videos on my you tube channel... there are a few more
road test videos with some great cars and build videos of my personal
project vehicle, a 1970 Ford Maverick with a Dodge Viper V10 engine stuffed

Project Jeep WJ Long Arm Suspension 4" Lift Install from IRO Grand Cherokee
This is my new project vehicle, a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee with only
100,000 miles on it.
The goal is to make a reliable daily driver that would also be fairly
capable as an off road rig for as cheap as possible. I sold my truck for
$5,000 and bought this thing for $4,000 leaving a little room for
improvements right out of the gate. I started with the Iron Rock Offroad
4" lift and some rock sliders. Next I bought some Hankook Dynapro M/T
tires size 265/75 R16.
This video shows the install of the suspension upgrades and sets up the
maiden voyage of the Jeep into the wilds of Death Valley...
Stay tuned for part 2 coming soon of the shakedown trip!
Off Road 4x4 Adventure - A Broken Jeep WJ and a Night in the Desert
I thought it might be nice to cruise through the lower portion of Death
Valley on my way home from the SEMA show in Las Vegas... and what should
have been a 9 hour drive turned into an accidental camping trip.
Hop on board for a little adventure through the Striped Butte Valley and
check out some of the sights and sounds of this little corner of Death

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:

Ford Taurus SHO Hennessey "445 Boost"
Ford Taurus SHO Hennessey "445 Boost". Visit: http://classiccarpictures.us/
The last time Hennessey entered our news section was when the Texas-based
company hammered their Venom GT to a top speed of 265.7 mph (427.6 km/h)
claiming it's the world's fastest production car. Before that, their Ford
GT reached 267 mph at the Texas Mile.
You'd think Hennessey is all about extreme vehicles, but it's not like
that. From time to time, the Houston tuning specialist comes up with less
outrageous vehicles that can be driven on public roads without fears of
taking off like a fighter jet.
And because they don't have four digit numbers for HP figures doesn't mean
these "lesser" cars are unattractive. They're actually pretty cool,
including the latest 2012 Ford Taurus SHO that came out of Hennessey's
workshop with more than 400 HP. This dark green four door went to Houston
with a 365 HP 3.5-liter turbo V6 under
the bonnet and came back to its owner with 445 HP after receiving the
companys MaxBoost 445 treatment.
To be more precise, the Taurus got a dual cold-air induction system and an
ECU remap for the extra 80 HP, and can now reach 60 mph (96 km/h) from a
standing start in 4.3 seconds, while the quarter mile is rated at 12.8
second and 109 mph. Besides the mechanical tweaks, the SHO also gained a
stainless steel cat-back Exhaust
system, unique "445 Boost" and
Hennessey badges, serialized dash and engine plates and embroidered
This may not be the world's fastest four-door sedan, but it must be one
heck of a cool ride!

2013 Ford Explorer Sport 0-60 MPH Mile High Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Ford Explorer Sport is a family
hauler, but it's also the fastest Explorer that you can buy. Under the hood
of this Crossover rocket is Ford's 3.5L V6 EcoBoost twin turbo engine that comes straight out of the Ford
Taurus SHO. In other words, think of the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport as an
all-wheel-drive Ford Taurus SHO that can seat up to 7 people. In this
TFLcar drive and review we find out just how fast the Ford Explorer Sport
with go from 0-60 MPH @ a mile above sea level.
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.
