The 2015 Ford Taurus SHO is the sportiest Taurus yet, blending a powerful and efficient EcoBoost® engine, enhanced driving dynamics and performance-inspired design with smart technology such as the available lane-keeping system.
Subtle differentiation from other members of the Taurus family starts up front, with a performance-inspired grille in black mesh – unique to Taurus SHO – flanked by series-specific high-intensity discharge headlamps. Behind the front wheel openings, a fender-mounted scallop contains a subtle SHO badge.
The Taurus SHO drivetrain continues to use the award-winning and fuel-efficient 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, delivering 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a six-speed high-capacity 6F55 SelectShift® Automatic transmission. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters enable Taurus SHO to match revs for smooth, quick, manually selected downshifts.
SHO dynamics are enhanced over other Taurus models with larger brakes, Torque Vectoring Control – using slight braking to provide the effect of a limited-slip differential – and unique sport-tuned suspension.
Taurus SHO is produced at Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant.
