2017 Ford Taurus SHO Specifications
Power and Specs
From the photos, we can be sure that the new 2017 Ford Taurus SHO car is hoped to be a sports sedan. Considering it, it is most probably going to use the same EcoBoost V6 3.5 liter engine. The transmission is no known so far, but sports sedans are now available on both auto and manual transmission. The previous model uses nine speed auto transmission though. The configuration though is all-wheel drive right now. The engine can be the same or slightly improved. With the same engine, Ford should aim for even better power output. More options on the vehicle should be nice too, but hybrid trim is out of question.

The previous 2017 Ford Taurus SHO model is designed nicely. The new model maybe uses the same D4 platform with several improvements here and there. The front grille seems to use horizontal chromed insert with the body is built muscular and more aggressive looking. The new model seems to be a front-end model.
