The SHO is back! This week I am driving Ford’s new-for-2010 Ford Taurus SHO — and unlike the last generation, which had a Yamaha-sourced V8 engine — this SHO is powered by Ford’s new EcoBoost 3.5-litre powerplant, one that has been making headlines.

The base Taurus starts at only $29,999 but the SHO model, equipped standard with all-wheel drive, a six-speed automatic transmission and 365hp and 350-lb-ft of torque ups the price to $49,729. Add in the collision mitigation system and radar-assisted cruise in my tester and it comes to a whopping $51,229 before the government damage.

This car is certainly no inexpensive performance deal, but it does give you much of everything: power, AWD, comfort, amenities and a trunk capable of fitting at least four sets of golf clubs.

Some of the standard features in the SHO include: heated and cooled seats with massage function, dual-zone climate control, back-up camera, rear sun shade, automatic headlamps, Microsoft Sync with Bluetooth, power adjustable pedals and power everything, including push button start.
