2013 Ford Taurus SHO First Drive (VIDEO | 11 PICS | SPECS)

The big news for Ford's biggest sedan is that it's getting the smallest engine in the Taurus nameplate's history.
Fast factory versions of frumpy family sedans are nothing new--they've been around almost as long as the industry has--but few really capture the mind of the auto enthusiast like the Ford Taurus SHO (Super High Output) did during the 1990s.

Perhaps because it was one of the few American takes on the concept at the time, or perhaps because it was simply a quick and fun sedan, but whatever it was SHO fans now have a new reason to celebrate. A new and updated Taurus SHO is being introduced for the 2013 model year and the car recently made its debut at the 2011 New York Auto Show.

Here is a video walk around of the latest SHO, with our man Joel Feder giving us the lowdown on what’s been changed.
