Ford Unveils the 2010 Taurus SHO

2010 Ford Taurus SHO

2010 Ford Taurus SHO

Remember when the Ford Taurus was cool? Scratch that — it was more than cool. When Robocop rolled down the streets of Old Detroit looking for drug-addicted perps to pummel, he didn’t drive a Yugo, a Toyota, a Saturn, or a Volvo. To facilitate his nightly exercises in ass-kickery, OCP’s favorite officer would slip behind the wheel of  his trusty, flat black Ford Taurus.

So after more than a decade of being lost in the wilderness — including a short, delusional period where Ford insisted on calling the Taurus the Ford Five Hundred — Ford has finally delivered a Taurus that Officer Murphy would again be proud of, thanks to the recent unveiling of the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO.

You can read the official Ford press release for the full scoop, but here are the vitals: a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 churning out 365 horsepower, a six-speed automatic transmission, a torque sensing all-wheel drive system, a retail sticker starting at $37,995, and an on-sale date of mid-2009. You can also find out more at the stalwart BringbacktheSHO Taurus fan community, which finally sees their prayers answered.

Maybe the new 2010 SHO will convince Conan O’Brien to update this homage to his emerald green 1992 Taurus, which you can see in the video clip embedded below. (Sourced from Eclipsenetwork.com.)

    When will this car be able to be purchased?? No one knows. The dealers tell you one thing and Ford something different. Can someone of importance at Ford kindly let your buyers know when this car will be able to be driven out side of the dealers lot with my license plates on the car. I have heard from April through August. Maybe Chevy knows more thna Ford!

    Hey JA –

    The latest I’ve heard is that the SHO will be available “sometime in the summer of 2009”, but that’s not much help. Once I hear a more definite on-sale date I’ll post it here.
