2011 New York: 2013 Ford Taurus SHO gets mid-cycle refresh and new Performance Package

2013 Ford Taurus SHO

The current Ford Taurus SHO has been with us for about three years now and has received mixed reviews. So naturally, we wouldn’t be expecting a mid-cycle refresh for another couple years. But FoMoCo decided to change things up and debuted the mid-cycle update for the 2013 Taurus earlier today at the 2011 New York Auto Show.

The refresh will feature some revised bodywork but will also feature bigger brakes, a reworked suspension to improve driving dynamics as well as other performance-inspired design.

Power for the 2013 Ford Taurus goes unchanged as the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 is carried over, producing 365hp and 250lb-ft of torque with a six-speed automatic and is capable of 25 mpg on the highway.

Also added to the mix is an optional Performance Package that adds larger brakes, 20-inch wheels with summer-performance tires and a reinforced cooling system for more spirited driving that will hopefully address the performance criticisms of the original model.
