To find out more, read on. To experience everything that makes the new Taurus unlike any other, drive one today. I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : TAURUS+SHO MAGNIFICENT MILES Beauty has its benefits. Here’s a surprising one: The crease that runs across the trunk on Taurus isn’t just for looks. It’s one of the many carefully finessed details that create an aerodynamic, windslicing shape, contributing to enhanced performance, interior quiet and fuel economy. Every square inch counts. TAURUS LIMITED • INGOT SILVER METALLIC • AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT FOR EVERY LINE, THERE IS A REASON. “Follow any line on this car, and just as soon as it seems to disappear, another will pick up and race you right around the car,” explains Earl Lucas, Design Manager for the new 2010 Ford Taurus. The effect is the result of many dedicated hours in the design studio, sculpting the perfect curves. Indeed, this physique keeps your eye constantly moving – from the chrome grille, over the confident domed hood, and down the muscular body. You may fordvehicles.com pause a moment to ponder a gleaming, meticulously machined wheel. Then trace the shapely shoulder back to the forward-leaning tail. The flow seems uninterrupted and flawlessly coherent, thanks to its purity of design. To accentuate every detail, a rich paint finish with clearcoat is fastidiously applied and then scrutinized by ultrasound to ensure that Taurus appears as if it’s been dipped in a deep, liquid gloss coating. I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : TAURUS+SHO TAURUS LIMITED • LIGHT STONE LEATHER TRIM WITH PERFORATED INSERTS • AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT HIGH-PROFILE DESIGN. Inside, many pleasurable details welcome you in and invite you to stay a while. Like the sleek exterior, this interior is trim. The seats are taut and comforting. Even the door panels sport well-defined ribs. A sweeping center console flows through the vehicle, imparting a sense of sporty elegance and housing tidy storage spaces to keep clutter in its place. An environment like this deserves to be discovered – not covered. fordvehicles.com 38° A NEW ANGLE ON INTERIORS The 38° forward lean of the center stack pushes interior boundaries further than Ford stylists have ever gone. This carefully considered design expands the space and elevates the controls. At the same time, it visually separates the 2 front passenger compartments as it sweeps through the cabin. Formed with unbroken lines, the seamless shape bespeaks refinement and craftsmanship. I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : TAURUS+SHO RINGS OF RELAXATION Simplicity and state-of-the-art technology comfortably coexist. Evidence: A subtle repeating Zen pattern on the speaker covers and within the cupholders and storage compartments provides a surprising sense of well-being.

I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : TAURUS+SHO H F D J G E C I A B SOOTHES YOUR SENSE OF INNER HARMONY. Ask our acoustics engineers and they’ll tell you: There’s a difference between “sound” and “noise.” Sound is part of the much-desired driver connection that provides active feedback, like the hum of the engine or gentle stir of the steering wheel. It engages and informs you. Noise, vibration and harshness, on the other hand, are distractions. Often caused by road, wind, traffic and mechanicals, these NVH annoyances have no place in a no-compromises car like the new 2010 Taurus. Thanks to numerous sound engineering features, this interior is a quiet, driverfocused space that seals out noise so you can appreciate every sweet sound within the cabin, including conversations and music. fordvehicles.com A. Front inlet air-induction system delivers smooth, linear sound quality and enhanced performance. B. Low chin spoiler helps reduce wind noise under the body. C. 3-layered door seals help shut out traffic and wind noise. D. Engineered, expandable baffles in every pillar create barriers that block and redirect sound. E. Acoustic-laminated SoundScreenTM glass helps deflect wind and traffic noise. F. Sash door construction increases upper door rigidity to resist vibration. G. Sound-deadening headliner helps absorb noise. H. Closed section rear headers stiffen the roof to inhibit squeaks, rattles and road noise. I. Carefully aligned, precisely fitting body panels help eliminate wind turbulence. J. Reinforced decklid enhances resistance to vibration; sound-deadening materials in the trunk, rear seat and footwells dampen suspension noise. I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : TAURUS+SHO +/– THE SHIFTING PARADIGM Available racing-style paddle shifters on the steering wheel put the driver in control of manual gear shifts. Rather than second-guessing the driver, this available 6-speed SelectShift Automatic TM transmission enables “match-rev” downshifts to hold manually selected gears. UP TO 28 MPG HWY2 TAURUS LIMITED • INGOT SILVER METALLIC • AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT ENTHUSIASTICALLY AND EFFICIENTLY PERFORMS TO EXACTING STANDARDS. How did we achieve such an exhilarating feel of the road? We “dialed it in” with engineering prowess and years of experience. The refinement began with advanced computer-aided design, and ended after countless hours behind the wheel and in the engineering lab, tuning calibrations to perfect the ride and handling balance. “Each change was designed to wake you up and make you feel alive behind the wheel,” explains Ford Taurus Vehicle Dynamics Development Engineer and race car driver, Cristina Rodriguez. 1 Whether it’s the standard front-wheel-drive configuration, the available All-Wheel-Drive model, or the ultra-tight 365-hp Taurus SHO, the calibrations were modified to maintain the commitment to engineering excellence that delivers that same engaging driving dynamic. A 263-hp 3.5L Duratec® V6 engine provides smooth, efficient power to a standard 6-speed transmission. And standard AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control brings an uncompromising level of confidence to every drive.1 Remember that even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. It’s always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions. 2 EPA-estimated 18 mpg city/28 hwy., FWD with 6-speed automatic transmission. fordvehicles.com I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : TAURUS+SHO ESTABLISH YOUR OWN AIR SPACE. Surround yourself with the power of available radar technology. No other vehicle in the class offers this kind of peace of mind and convenience. Only the new 2010 Taurus. WAKE-UP CALL According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), up to a third of all crash reports involve rear-end collisions. One key reason: driver distraction. While big, fast-cooling, ventilated disc brakes in the new Taurus provide exceptional stopping power, only you can control your attention and reaction time. That’s why Taurus offers available state-of-theart radar systems that are designed to help you avoid an accident. 66 44 45 29 SAFE DEGREES OF SEPARATION Available class-exclusive Adaptive Cruise Control uses forward radar to monitor traffic. It’s designed to adjust your cruising speed to maintain a preset “headway” distance to the vehicle in front of you (29, 44 or 66 yards). Based on a speed of 60 mph. RED ALERT Early warning is key to helping prevent an accident, so Taurus offers available Collision Warning with Brake Support. This radar-based system is designed to alert you if its sensors detect a potential collision with the car in front of you by flashing a heads-up display red warning light across the windshield and sounding an alarm. That alert can provide 1.5 to 2.5 seconds for you to hit the brakes. If you don’t react in time, it pre-charges the brakes and increases brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you brake. fordvehicles.com YOUR LOOKOUT Help avoid neck wrenching and panic maneuvers with the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System). When driving, this vigilant watchdog uses two radar sensors located in the rear quarter panels to detect vehicles in the surrounding lanes. If a vehicle enters your blind-spot zones, the system alerts you with a warning light in the appropriate sideview mirror. BACKUP CLEARANCE Unlike most rear-sensing systems, the available Cross Traffic Alert system uses radar to watch for traffic behind you when slowly backing out of a parking spot. When it detects vehicles up to 45' away (about 5 parking spaces), it sends an audible warning, a message center alert, and a visual display in the corresponding mirror. Brilliant technology to help prevent a bad day. I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : TAURUS+SHO ENGINEERED TO EXCEL IN DRIVING TECHNOLOGY. Enhance your drive, ease your stress, facilitate connections, entertain your passengers. Any way you look at it, the new 2010 Taurus is designed to make your drive more productive with innovative, attentive features and more meaningful technologies than ever before. A. Exclusive Sony® Audio – Taurus is the first 5-passenger large car in North America to offer a Sony Sound System with surround sound and Sony DSP processing as a factory option. Its 390 watts of continuous power and 12 high-quality speakers are specifically tailored to the Taurus cabin for impeccable fidelity. B. Rear View Camera – This available system displays a color image with guidance markers on your rearview mirror or 8" navigation screen (if equipped) to assist you in backing up. C. Rear-window power sunshade – One touch and the available sunshade rises, blocking out harmful rays and heat, without compromising visibility. D. Rain-sensing windshield wipers – This available feature uses an infrared beam and sensor to monitor precipitation, then automatically turns on the wipers and varies their speed to react to unpredictable conditions. No more fumbling with controls when you should be focusing on the road. Ambient Lighting – Choose this option, and you can select from 7 hues. Color will illuminate the cupholders, footwells and door pulls for instant ambience. E. Easy FuelTM capless fuel filler – Pump in. Pump out. No messy cap to touch. Fewer evaporative emissions. F. Auto High Beam headlamps – Using an available windshieldmounted camera to monitor surrounding traffic, Taurus switches to high-intensity lighting when no other headlamps or taillamps are detected. fordvehicles.com A B C D E F I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : TAURUS+SHO SHO 365-HP ™ 1 3.5L ECOBOOST V6 TWIN-TURBOCHARGED DIRECT-INJECTION TAURUS SHO • RED CANDY METALLIC TINTED CLEARCOAT • AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT YEAH, IT FLIES. RIGHT UNDER THE RADAR. It lies quietly in wait. When the moment’s right, it takes off, leaving others in its wake. They’ll get a glimpse of you smiling slyly and a parting blur of its powerful shape, punctuated by a tuned exhaust note that emanates from dual chrome-tipped pipes. An aerodynamic rear spoiler and lower front chin reduce drag and enhance performance. Premium 19" aluminum wheels or available 20s add style where the rubber meets the road. From the outside, SHO might slip by undetected but for its stealthy, painted grille, crisp HID headlamps and unique LED parking lamps. Then again, the true beauty of SHO is under the surface.

No need to wait for rpm to build, just enjoy the broad, linear torque band all the way from 1500 to 5000 rpm for knock-you-back-in-yourseat launch and acceleration. GRACE UNDER PRESSURE EcoBoost’s twin turbochargers are capable of an astounding 205,000 revolutions per minute, so they spin up fast without turbo lag. Energy from the exhaust – otherwise wasted – rotates the turbine wheels. Each turbine is coupled to a compressor that pressurizes the incoming air and mixes it with the atomized fuel in the combustion chamber, significantly increasing output per liter. Since what goes in must come out, SHO has a free-flowing dual exhaust from the engine, clear to the rear. ECOBOOST: SHOCKINGLY SOPHISTICATED. At the heart of SHO’s performance is the all-new, highly advanced 3.5L EcoBoostTM V6 twin-turbocharged, directinjection engine. From a modest 3.5 liters, it delivers a stunning 365 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque.1 The secret is the masterful partnership of twin turbochargers and direct fuel injection – the first such production engine in North America. That means you enjoy the power output of a V8, with better fuel economy and lower emissions than a naturally aspirated 8-cylinder engine. All with immediate response, at any speed. Stunningly rewarding. 1 Figures achieved using premium unleaded gasoline. fordvehicles.com I nf or mat i onPr ov i dedby : PEAK PERFORMER For the ultimate enthusiast, push SHO over the top with the Performance Package.

With 6 speeds at its disposal, SHO intuitively selects the perfect gear at any moment for effortless acceleration and comfortable high-speed cruising. If you’re up for it, paddle shifters put control at your fingertips. GET IN TIGHT WITH TAURUS SHO. Tighter handling, tighter turns, a tighter relationship with the road. (We know you don’t seek approval, but you’ll welcome this kind of feedback.) With SHO, driving dynamics took a serious turn. We optimized chassis calibrations for precise response to driver inputs and exceptional body control in the curves. Unique, SHO-specific equipment includes sport-tuned struts and shocks, a larger front stabilizer bar, a thicker rear anti-roll bar, higher spring rates and higher-rate fordvehicles.com front strut mounts. A greater power bias to the rear wheels gives the standard All-Wheel-Drive SHO superb balance. At the critical driver interface, advanced Electric Power-Assisted Steering delivers crisp response and excellent oncenter feel. And at the asphalt, available 20" wheels with wide performance tires generate maximum adhesion. Hold on.
