2010 Ford Taurus SHO (Weekly Test-Drive):
Questions we’ve recently received from Twitter and the site:
Twitter: Does the 2010 Taurus have a large trunk?
Yes – it is enormously large. Extremely gigantic. We’ll have a picture up in our final review by next week.
Autto: What are your feelings on the paddle shifters? Does this tester come with the performance package?
We’re not too fond of the paddle shifters. They are a bit flimsy and a bit uncomfortable unless you can wrap your whole hand around the large steering wheel. Yes, our tester does come with a performance package and 19-inch wheels.
