Not sure why they would release this so early. What happened to 2012?
The changes don't really improve the car. I test drove the Taurus last year and wasn't very impressed at all in the 1st place. The car didn't feel as fast as it should, and it felt pretty cheap in many places. the doors especially felt like I was driving a $12000 car. The Buick LaCrosse is superior in every way.
Not the SHO version has a weird open gap of a mouth that doesn't look good at all.
The big news is the availability of the 2.0 Liter Turbo as an option. Which could help MPG numbers.
