Hi, this is Joe Bruzek from cars.com. We’re here with the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO. Now, the SHO makes its return this year Super High Output is what it stands for. And it’s Ford’s high performance version of the Taurus. Just like the previous generation shows, the outside is pretty subtle compared to the standard Taurus’. There are really not a whole lot of flashy add-ons. They had this lip spoiler, chrome dual exhaust, and there are really not a whole lot of show badges either on the car. There's one the rear deck lid and there's one on the inside. There are also these 19-inch wheels that are standard, 20-inch optional and also a new grill.
The highlight of the SHO is absolutely the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V-6. Now with 365 horsepower and uses twin-turbo chargers and directs injection to really liven-up the experience. Now, what turbochargers and direct injection give you in this setup is a very quick throttle response and power allover the RPM range. The Taurus is a heavy car, and unfortunately it still handles like one at 4,300 pounds and the all-wheel drive system doesn’t quite get around the corners as well as something like the Acura TL super handling all-wheel drive system. They're still under steer and it feels like there's a lot of weight up front.
Compared to the competition, at its price range, there are some better performers out there. Trunks space on the Taurus is massive. It’s class leading at 20 cubic feet and it was able to swallow three golf bags with no problem at all and there's room for maybe another three or four golf bags. My main drive for the show isn't with the show package but rather the Taurus itself and especially the leg room upfront. Now, to be comfortable I have to put the seat back a good distance and that takes up rear passenger room. My knees are touching back here and there's not a whole lot of room for my feet either.
Now, if you're trying to decide between the regular Taurus and the Taurus SHO you’ll be glad that gas mileage is the same between all-wheel drive models, probably at 17 to 25 mile per gallon on a city/highway. Now while the gas mileage is an advantage between this. You still can’t get a manual transmission and there are better performers out there if you really want a sports car like drive in a sedan. This one doesn’t really have the whole package and at 38,000, you can get the complete package elsewhere.
