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:
Boosting the Ford Eco Boost [S6 Ep.6-1]
One of the hottest new rigs on the market is the Ford F150 with the new 6
cylinder eco-Boost engine. But is
it all it can be? Well, today on GEARZ Stacey takes a new eco-Boost powered Ford and shows you some simple
upgrades that can Boost performance
AND fuel economy of this great new engine...at a price you can afford.
Then Stacey rolls in the nastiest, grungiest, barn-find Mustang that you can imagine and
shows you the steps and tools required to buff an old nasty paint job back
to life. Did we mention that this paint is BLACK!?! All to prove the point
that if it can be done with a black car...it can be done with any car...and
GEARZ is the show that shows you how to do it!
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.
