The new SHO gets a 365 HP, 350 lb-ft twin turbocharged V6, all-wheel-drive, a slick, rev-matching, gear-holding paddle-shifted automatic transmission and very subtle visual modifications. In fact, you can read all the details in our earlier Taurus SHO post.

What we didn't have at the time was the above horsepower and torque curves for the EcoBoost in the Taurus SHO. The phrase "a flat torque curve" is very often tossed around willy-nilly, but the graph Ford has provided us is so ridiculous it practically defies reason.

Got a chance to drive the 2010 pre production SHO last night. She’s no sleeper. The turbo whine down after letting up off the accelerator is really cool. Got back in my 99 SHO with 161,000 while thinking about my three college bound kids, rubbed the dash board and said, don’t worry old girl, we still have a 114,000 to go.
