Ford used a live musical performance from Grammy-award-winning Train to celebrate the pre-autoshow unveiling of their 2013 Taurus large sedan in Manhattan earlier this week. The car is not all-new from the ground up but features some updated design cues, improved MPG ratings and an all new 4-cylinder eco-boost engine option to keep the feds at bay. We’re not party planners or anything, but Metropolitan Pavilion seemed like an odd venue for the event considering that Porsche was throwing a similar event right next door (see yesterday’s post).
We woud ordinarily open wide and yawn when thinking about grocery-getting sedans like Taurus, but this thing looks pretty good. Certainly more exciting to look at than an Accord or Camry from an everyday driver standpoint. Of particular interest is the SHO, the ultimate sleeper car, packing a hot new grille, updated 20 inch wheels and a carryover 365 HP Ecoboost V6. Ford says its the sportiest Taurus to ever bear the SHO name.
We’re inclined to agree.
