Car Tech Video: 2013 Ford Taurus SHO

0:59 /

Angrier and powerful is the only way to describe this Taurus.

-Here's the new face for the revised Ford Taurus, all kind of angry and menacing-looking especially on the SHO edition, and there's new increased sculpting around the body, a new shape on the hood. Now, non-SHO Tauri will get a light revision as well, but the most interesting thing is this will be the first Ford to offer a choice of 2 EcoBoost engines (those are the ones that combine direct injection and turbo charging): one will be a new version of the 3.5-liter V6 that will now deliver a healthy 290 horsepower; and the other will be a little 2-liter 4 that should deliver 31 MPG from this big car. MyFordTouch will now be available on the LCD screen of a Taurus and rumors have it, some sort of video streaming could be coming to that system. The electric power steering will enable the same impressive automatic parking tech we recently saw on the Focus. The new Taurus hits the market in 2012 as a 2013 model.
