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.
