We've managed to get our hands on the dealer ordering guide for the all-new 2010 Ford Taurus, which breaks down the options and confirms an EcoBoost model, possibly the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO.

The breakdown gives us a view of how the different trim levels (SE, SEL, Limited) get optioned. The entry level SE model, which will start at $25,995, gets some of Ford's new gee-whiz features like MyKey, SOS Post Crash Alert, and the fancy SecuriCode touch keypad from the MKS. The SEL adds a security package, chrome exhaust tips and a few more interior refinements. As things move up the line the options get heaped on until we make it all the way to the Taurus Limited, which gets a huge standard equipment list including wood trim, leather and nearly every electronic option in the Ford parts bin.

Most reassuring about the entire leak is confirmation the 3.5 liter, turbocharged, direct injection EcoBoost V6 is coming to the Taurus. It's right there in black and white, safely planned to enter production, just as God, or at least Alan Mulally, intended.

This is looking really nice for the average Joe looking to get a family car. You get the light weight and responsiveness of the V6, and a nice turbo punch for those tricky passing situations. I really think a nice AWD model is a great choice for icy roads too. Like most everyone else, the lack of a manual is the problem for me, but I guess I am not a target customer. If it were, then I'd have to take the manual and do a little insightful modification of the front fascia.
