They need to get rid of the fat bloated pig of a whale Sho Taurus, and make the Sho version of the Fusion. I'd say the new Ecoboost 2.7t and manual trans or 8 speed auto or actually the new 10 speed coming out in a year or two and call it a day, would mop the floor with the current Taurus Sho. I've thought about tuning with SCT or Livernois, even though its not my car haha. Bet $ they'd sell like hotcakes vs the slow selling Taurus Sho, especially if made in awd.
Fords on a roll, just rode in a 15' F-150 and damn it was nice and so solid, 5.0 too and it was noticeably quicker then the last gen so the weight loss definitely helped (and the past gen was pretty damn quick especially with 3.73 gears). Now Fords bringing the Focus RS here which will kickass especially with tuning.
We drove all the vehicles in it's class at the time (save for the Camry), and Fusion was tops, Accord and Mazda and it were all about even for sportiness for the class, but loved the interior and drive, and Mazda has no option besides the regular 4 which is just odd. Camry on the other hand was a pile of shit, didn't even need to test it lol, had a few rentals brand new even a loaner fully loaded after an accident as was the only available thing and it was shit. Just saw a review for the now updated, for the 2nd time now in a few years lol, Camry... and still said it was below the Fusion and Accord.
