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

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!

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.

2011 FORD SHO vs SRT8 Charger
LAST YR 2011 FORD SHO vs 5.7L CHARGER w/out the LIVERNOIS TUNE, Now beat a
6.1 SRT8 w/ LIVERNOIS TUNE, SHO 13.26, 6.1L HEMI 13.99 (96 deg night).
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

hauler, but it's also the fastest Explorer that you can buy. Under the hood

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.
