I wish I had a 2010 Taurus SHO!!!

To me, this the new supercoupe?  With a  3.5 EcoBoost™ V6 engine that makes 365 hp lookout.  As Ford says:

The 3.5L EcoBoost™ is the first North American production twin-turbocharged direct-injection V6 engine. And Taurus SHO is the first and only vehicle in its class* to feature the EcoBoost engine. This engine provides better fuel economy** and fewer emissions than a V8. EcoBoost combines two different technologies – turbocharging and direct injection – to deliver the performance of a much larger engine with the fuel economy of a smaller engine.** It churns out 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque across a wide 1,500 – 5,000 rpm range. And it does all that with an estimated 17 city/25 highway fuel economy.** Compared to a naturally aspirated engine, the 3.5L EcoBoost twin turbocharged direct injection V6 engine provides higher performance, better fuel economy** and fewer CO2 emissions: • Improved transient response enabled by the direct injector reduces “turbo lag,” overcoming the traditional disadvantage of downsizing and boosting • More efficient fuel consumption is the result of a high compression ratio enabled by direct injection, which provides air charged cooling *Class is five-passenger Large Car. **EPA-estimated 17 city/25 hwy (AWD).

Not only is it fast but is is all wheel drive and has a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic overdrive with paddle activation that should kick some butt!

Love to drive one...

The only thing that bothers me is what is on the window sticker:

What is with California Emissions System in PA?  Sounds like reduced power to me!!!! 

So I looked it up...  See the following.  Right click to page 12.

As per the above I can order it from that state and bring it into my state and not have a  California Emissions System.  Hummm....  Now to figure out what it really does..

The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most don’t think that anymore.
