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.
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!

Dodge Viper V10 in a Ford Maverick Build Video 3 - Engine Removal / Oil Pan Issues
This is video blog three of the Viper powered Maverick build up. Today I
was able to pull the engine and transmission out of the car so the next
phase of modifications could be made.
First, because the engine is mounted so low in the vehicle to fit under the
stock hood...the oil pan is going to need fairly serious modification to
give a practical amount of ground clearance.
Next, I wanted to turn the engine upside down to dump the dog food that a
rat had stashed in the intake manifold galley and get ready for the cam
swap which will be in an upcoming video.
Thanks for watching and I'll keep the videos coming as often as I get a
chance to work on the car!
Death Valley Off Road Tour 4x4 - Two Dudes Camping and Seeing Cool Stuff
This documentary is of a trip to Death Valley in my 1999 Jeep Grand
Cherokee with a freshly installed IRO long arm 4" lift kit. I talked an
experienced "off-roader" friend of mine into teaching me the basics of four
wheeling and showing me some of the cool spots that many people don't see
when they go to Death Valley.
Special thanks to my friend Mike Todd for letting me eat some of the real
food that he brought and cooked, instead of having to survive on Cliff bars
and beef jerky like I had planned!
Also thanks to the guys at Iron Rock Off Road for the right advice on all
of the upgrades I've made to the Jeep so far...
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 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.

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.

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 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.

Help us grow so we can bring you more videos! Like us on Facebook @
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.
