'The 1989 Ford Taurus SHO Is Worth The Wait'

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, manufacturers weren't putting ugly plastic covers on top of their engines. That's what is so lovely about the Taurus SHO: You're allowed to see the unequal length tuned intake runners. They really catch the eye. » 1/17/13 6:00pm 1/17/13 6:00pm

Keep "them" guessing with the 1990 Ford Taurus SHO

"They" say by a certain age you fall into a certain pattern of statistics that include ownership of a typical four door sedan, like say a Ford Taurus. Ford had a surefire way to prove "them" wrong—the 1990 Ford Taurus SHO. » 12/17/11 9:00am 12/17/11 9:00am

2010 Mobsteel Ford Taurus SHO: First Drive

The thing with the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO is that, while it's pretty fast, it's also pretty docile. Mobsteel set out to fix that with an extra 90 hp, 147 lb-ft of torque, and a mess of billet aluminum. » 6/10/10 3:30pm 6/10/10 3:30pm

The Upside Of A Sissified Explorer Is A Badass Taurus SHO

We've been in a huff about the 2011 Ford Explorer going from body-on-frame SUV to questionably-necessary, Taurus-based crossover. But we've had our thinking backwards. An emasculated Explorer means the possibility of an easily made high-clearance light off-road Taurus SHO! Discuss. » 4/16/10 10:30am 4/16/10 10:30am

Be Very Quiet, The Taurus SHO's Sleeping

We know the Ford Taurus SHO's historically been called a sleeper, but this is ridiculous. In all seriousness, at least the "O" didn't almost kill someone. » 2/11/10 1:00pm 2/11/10 1:00pm

LeMons Torture Test Results: Ford Taurus SHO

OK, Taurus fans, we're not saying the SHO isn't fast. It's very fast, we're the first to acknowledge. The problem is that your beloved Yamaha V6 tends to 'splode on a race track, and if it's not the engine it's the transmission.

Ford Taurus, SHO Ad Campaign More About Toys, Less About Driving

Ford kicks off their new ad campaigns for the 2010 Ford Taurus and the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO August 4th. The campaign targets "discerning customers" focused on "technology, innovation and style." They're so tech-focused they've embedded tech in their ads. » 7/30/09 11:00am 7/30/09 11:00am

2010 Ford Taurus SHO: First Drive
