The world of automotive snooping is a unique one. There are unnamed sources giving out secrets and pictures taken of cars wrapped in interesting material. This latest photo is no different. It’s clearly a Ford Taurus, but Brenda Priddy says that this is not your everyday Ford. The SHO wheels and the dual chrome exhaust tips tell us a different story.
For 2012, designers wanted to give the high-performance Taurus a unique look. Priddy’s sources are saying that this new SHO will pack 400 horsepower from the 3.5-liter EcoBoost motor.
From the photos we have, you can see an updated grille, but the rest is mostly the same. Priddy says that a completely updated car isn’t expected until 2015.
We’re not sold on all of this new information. There is no clear evidence that there is a new motor under the hood. Ford appears to be hot weather testing, which could mean there is a new motor or it could mean they are testing the new grilles airflow in hot weather. We’ll have to wait until we get some serious proof.
