The Ford Taurus SHO Is The Sports Sedan Of A Past Age

The Ford Taurus was a long-running Ford sedan that went from being a midsize option to a large full-size sedan. During that time, Ford made substantial upgrades to these models and, in turn, created a model that put performance at the forefront. The Super High Output (SHO) performance model was first available from 1989 to 1999, then again from 2010 until 2019 when the Ford Taurus ceased production. This particular sedan packed quite a punch when it came to power and came with understated styling to help it blend in with the rest of the cars on the road. What made the Ford Taurus SHO so unique?

Sure, there were performance sedans, but most times, those were luxury models. The Ford Taurus SHO was a sports sedan for the regular shopper. This sedan quickly became one of the top models on Ford dealership lots.
