      Wow if that claim is true, that thing has some grip and mumbo.

    46. Spy Shots: 2010 Ford Taurus SHO spotted without camo!

      Well now, that old man Taurus sure is looking a lot more youthful these days. The SHO pictured comes complete with 350 hp and 350 lbft AWD drive train. Is this going to be Ford's new cult car?

    49. 2010 Taurus almost uncovered.

    50. 2010 Ford Taurus revealed!
