The 2015 Ford Taurus line varies in weight depending on the model, according to Ford; the SHO weighs 4,327 pounds, while the standard front-wheel-drive sedan with a 2.0-liter engine weighs 3,858 pounds. The front-wheel drive model with a 3.5-liter engine weighs 3,917 pounds, and the all-wheel-drive model weighs 4,140 pounds.

A review of the 2013 Taurus SHO model by Wired.com indicates that while the car is relatively heavy at more than two tons, its 3.50-liter EcoBoost V6 engine and six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission make it fast and nimble on the road.
