Ford announced on Wednesday that the 2013 Taurus SHO can be spiced up with a new performance package that includes 20-inch machined and painted wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and performance brake pads and track-tuned calipers.

Track tuned calipers, "performance brake pads," "sport-tuned suspension," and those ugly crap rims add 2 grand to the price? Way to go. I'll take seven.

I just cannot believe the sheer size of this car! It almost like an Excursion in sedan form.

Had a new Taurus as a rental (non-SHO) and it could have easily fit 17 bodies in the trunk. Absolute monstrosity.

If your dumb enough to buy an SHO you may be dumb enough to pay more.
So many better choices out there.

LOL @ "track-tuned" calipers. I used to think my SHO was big until these things came out.

This car has many flaws, such as the oddly not spacious interior, the stupid raised back seats, and bad visibility due to the super high beltline. All of these it pretty much inherited from the underwhelming Five Hundred.

BUT, I don't think the price itself for a car like this is that crazy. It does sit in an odd niche of a market, where the only other competition is various Chrysler products based on the 300. I cannot think of anyone else that makes sporty versions of non-premium FULL SIZE sedans. But considering the premium you pay for sporty versions of compact (like the WRX) or mid-size (like.. the Altima SE-R of the olden days?), and the equipment level that this car comes with, I think the pricing is somewhat reasonable.

Price increase is well worth the new style. Should have bumped that power up a little though.

Do you find that you can relate well to Eminem's character in 8 mile?

They did. Remember the Ford Five Hundred? Probably not, which is why they brought back the name Taurus soon after the Five Hundred stumbled.
