At the show: Ford Taurus SHO

The Ford Taurus SHO, short for Super High Output, is on display at the Atlanta Auto Show. It was in dealer showrooms a decade ago and featured a smooth V6 engine from Yamaha and a manual transmission. The 2010 all-wheel drive model is powered by a twin-turbo charged V-6 generating 365 horsepower and 350 pounds-feet of torque mated to a six-speed paddle-shifter.
There's more power, more torque and at 25 mpg on the highway the EcoBoost engine is more fuel-efficient than the original V-8 Taurus SHO of a generation ago.

Honda choose a hatchback is initiated by the popularity of such models in Europe.” The American Honda organization asked for a sedan, but we held on to the hatch, also because of its better aerodynamics!!
