2013 Ford Explorer Sport EcoBoost Walkaround & SUV Video Review with Chief Engineer Bill Gubing
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/explorer/2013/ Autobytel recently caught up with the Explorer's Chief Engineer Bill Gubing for some in-depth info on both the appearance aspects and the performance aspects of the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport SUV.
Up front one of the most notable appearance features is the new front grille. Here we see the contrasting high gloss bars with the low gloss mesh behind that really sets off the front of this vehicle. Ford took the muscular look of the 2011 model and wanted to make the new 2013 model stand out even more. Besides the front grille, Ford created a technical wrap by blacking out the grille, headlights, and also the lower bumper openings. The Explorer name was added to the front of the vehicle for the first time. From the side the large 20-inch wheels with black painted pockets are the first thing you notice. The blacked-out theme continues along the Explorer with blacked-out mirror caps, side skirts, and roof rails. Out back it's more of the same. The taillights have the smoked treatment with the rear diffuser darkened too. The rear eye-catcher though is the dual polished Exhaust tips.
Moving to the interior of the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport the first thing you notice is the illuminated kick plate. The interior is all about craftsmanship with many upgrades being added to the Sport trim level. The seats have a sienna color insert with contrast stitching. The Explorer design team looked at European Fashion houses and looked at what was coming out in the Leather world to gain some insights into the future of automobile interior surfaces. The trim pieces have a high metallic look that blend nicely with the blacked-out exterior direction. Sony branded audio is standard with HD radio. The Explorer also features the 8-inch touch screen with MyFord Touch.
Most SUV buyers can be categorized as those either looking for fuel economy or those looking for power. Ford met the needs of both groups with the different EcoBoost engine options. The 2.0 liter EcoBoost is perfect for the fuel economy minded customer and the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V-6 for those looking for more power. In fact the 3.5 liter turbocharged EcoBoost makes 365 horsepower. There is a ton of power that needed to be effectively put down to the road. This is where the AWD system was completely retuned optimizing for the torque sensing system making sure the power would be put to the pavement. The wheels were widened to 9-inches and wrapped in a performance tire. In regards to vehicle dynamics; the body structure was stiffened via a tower to tower brace and a cross tunnel brace. Overall lateral stiffness was increased by 37%.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Wikipedia says, "a crossover is a vehicle built on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle, especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.

2013 Ford Taurus SHO EcoBoost Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/taurus/2013/sho-awd/ The 2013 Ford Taurus SHO is a comfortable cruiser with a mean bite. This full-sized sedan packs 365 horsepower while getting good fuel economy numbers. The SHO is the top of the line Taurus model packed with all the features and options that Ford could cram into this vehicle. The base price on the Taurus SHO is $39,200 and there are really no other vehicles in this segment that can match the performance at this price point.
The 2013 Ford Taurus SHO is powered by a twin-turbo 3.5 liter V-6 EcoBoost engine that gives the power of a V-8 with the fuel economy of a V-6. This engine also features direct injection which sprays fuel directly into the cylinder; which in turn gives you optimal performance with lower emissions. The power output is 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of torque. The 6-speed automatic transmission features steering wheel mounted shifters. Power is put down to the ground through an AWD system that uses Torque Vectoring which keeps the car in control by applying brake pressure between the front and rear wheels. This not only keep the passengers safe and the drive in control but it also allows the Taurus SHO to hug corners.
On the outside the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO gets a couple of updates over the previous model. There are new projector beam headlights with daytime running LED lights that make a real visual impact. The SHO model gets a unique piano-black mesh grille with chrome accent pieces. Also exclusive to the SHO model is the sporty and functional rear spoiler that increases downforce. Underneath the full-size sedan lives a true dual Exhaust system that not only aids in the performance department; but it also looks and sounds cool. 19-inch aluminum rims are standard on the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO model but you can upgrade to either 20-inch machined or 20-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in high performance tires.
On the inside the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO sports Multi-contour seats with active motion which give the front passengers a lower back and upper leg message. These leather trimmed units have both a heating and cooling mechanism built in. The push button start is a must for any technologically advanced sedan. The instrument cluster features a speedometer in the middle surrounded by a LCD screen on each side that is customizable to display the information that is most important to the driver. Both the steering wheel and the voice activated SYNC system can control the radio, phone, navigation, climate controls, and more. The stereo system features 12 speakers located throughout the interior of the car and HD Radio is standard on the SHO. All of the technology in the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO is easily within reach.
