2010 Ford Taurus SHO Returns from the Dead

Even if we're not sure a 365 horsepower engine is the smartest way to conquer the market during harsh economic times, Ford rolled out the 2010 Taurus SHO said to provide very high performance plus a bunch of new features unavailable for the base Taurus. The SHO, which actually stands for Super High Output, is expected to go on sale this summer, with pricing starting at $37,995, including destination taxes.

The main highlight of this sporty Taurus is obviously the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine it features, with maximum power achieving 365 hp at 5,500 rpm. Also know as Ford's most powerful EcoBoost engine, the 3.5-liter unit is mated to a six-speed transmission for enhanced fuel economy and a smoother ride, as the American automaker explained in a press statement.

“The new Taurus SHO delivers on the authentic sleeper sedan formula but adds all-new luxury-appointments, convenience features and technologies to an unsurpassed balance of power and fuel economy,” said Mark Fields, Ford’s president of The Americas. “This new sport derivative answers enthusiasts’ calls for a premium Ford flagship sedan with even more attitude.”

In terms of features, the 2010 Taurus SHO has a wide range of standard equipment, including electronic power-assisted steering, sport-tuned suspension, Intelligent Access with Push Button Start, Belt-Minder safety belt reminder, Easy Fuel Capless Fuel Filter System, Ford SYNC and Ambient Lighting.

There are also several optional features available as it follows:
  • Reverse Camera System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert
  • Cross Traffic Alert
  • Multi-Contour Seats with Active Motion
  • Voice-Activated Navigation System with 10 GB HDD and CD/DVD player
  • Sony Audio System with 12 speakers and a digital amplifier
