Shaving 800 lbs would take off a lot of metal! Not sure what the interceptor is..?

There have been rumors of an "interceptor" version of the taurus to use for a new police vehicle but if that happens (i dont see police using an awd car) they arent going to be using the ecoboost...ive also heard that the next interceptor wasnt going to be based on the taurus.

ive spent a few hours behind the wheel of an SHO and there is NO QUESTION that its a great car. I enjoyed driving it so much that I put gas in it twice...and handed a kid in a 5.0 fox body his ***. the interior quality of the SHO is luxorious and all of that power, mated to an AWD system and a great paddle shift system is a ton of fun. you can bring the rpms up as much as you can and launch without a hint of tire spin or lag. the paddle shift system is a hundred times better than what chevy has in the camaro...probably the best ive driven.

the downside...the SHO that I had carried a price around 47,000. almost fifty thousand dollars for a taurus? For that price, you have to compare the SHO to the 300C SRT8...and its a very different story. also, the fuel economy is good for a 365hp car...but with 17/25, I know people with 300Cs who get better mileage than that.

Short term that SHO looks relavent and exciting. Long term how many old Ford cars other that Crown Victorias do you see driving around? I'd take the 300 any day of the week before the SHO. Buy the 300 new take care of it and you should be driving it for many many years.

I think it's a great looking large sedan. I'd be proud to own one. They look athletic whereas the 300s look lumberous. Will be even better when they are 2 years old with around 20K miles on them priced in the low 20's.

The SHO is nice but I really don't see this and the 300c stealing much marketshare from each other. They're a different class of car, and honestly looks-wise the 300 slaughters the Taurus as far as I'm concerned. This isn't to say the Taurus looks bad because it doesn't but the 300c was an absolute home run in the looks department and it still is. Furthermore the SHO should be compared to the SRT8 as both are the high performance models of the line. The 300 has a slightly subdued muscular look and a level of class that the Taurus simply can't match.
