By KBB.com Editors on February 15, 2009 8:47 AM
The original Taurus SHO was the most decorated domestic sports sedan of the closing decades of the 20th century. Now, after a hiatus of 10 model years, it's back. The 2010 Ford Taurus SHO earns its proverbial sport stripes with a 365-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V6 engine, six-speed manumatic transmission, all-wheel drive, sport-tuned suspension and subtle exterior enhancements. Buyers can up the ante with the SHO Performance Package consisting of upgraded brake pads, recalibrated steering, a sport setting for the electronic stability control, 20-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 performance tires and a shorter final drive ratio for faster acceleration. Cool standard features include keyless entry and push-button start, capless fuel filler, SYNC and driver-customizable ambient interior lighting. A long list of high-tech options includes blind spot detection, cross traffic alert (helps when backing out of a parking space) and adaptive cruise control. Look for the Taurus SHO this summer at a starting price of $37,995.
