    Ford has been on a roll lately, Chrysler and GM better take notice.

    same goes for Toyota, Honda, Nissan etc.

    Looks 100x more impressive in person than the pics...I saw a white SHO on the road the other day and I was blown away...

    The old Taurus is no where near as big...this is Crown Vic size...The old Taurus is closer to the Fusion in size...

    Old taurus was mid sized, and smaller than it's competition.

    I was shocked when I saw one in person. I think 'Taurus' and associate crap out of habit, but this is noticeably different. If I was in the market, I'd give one a look.

    I still haven't seen one on the road, my local ford dealer was packed with them though :dunno:

    There is still nothing from ford that I'd buy, the diesel fiesta would be on my short list for a new DD but they aren't going to bring it over so fuck 'em, and I can't wait to get this albatross of an '02 ranger off my neck.

    Being I live in Metro Detroit I've seen a ton of the SHO's, mostly with manufacturer plates, cruising on the freeways. Not a bad looking car I gotta say.

    Well, and the MKS was launched first and the Taurus got a lot of improvements based on MKS feedback/testing...
