Not Heavy? It is ABSOLUTELY heavy. 4400 lbs.

AWD is all it has going for it.

Yours is a vert, right? Also, that must be with you in it because a Vert Cobra is not that heavy. They are around 3600. With a person and some mods/wheels it can get close to the weight you mentioned.

No need to as my statement still stands.

Not many cars crest 4k lbs. He mentioned three cars. 2 of which are wrong. A Camaro SS is 3750 lbs and a Mustang S197 is 3480 lbs. The 5.0 Is approximately 3580 lbs. Even the Shelby GT500 is JUST under4k at 3980ish.

Even the Charger is just under 4100 lbs.

So again? Those are almost 1000 lbs lighter than the Taurus.

No need to get nasty. ESPECIALLY when you were wrong even still. Not trying to argue but facts are facts and a forum meant to share information needs to be as accurate as possible.

4400 LBS is not light no matter how you slice it.

It runs high 13s trapping 98-101 MPH. With 365 HP that is more than unimpressive.

In today's age, a car averaging a 14.0 flat is nothing impressive. Quick sure but not crazy fast as you make it out to be. A 2011+ V6 Mustang would walk it.

Now, someones comment on how they run slightly modded? Well, that is a different story as a Twin Turbo anything can put up nice numbers when lightly modded. But if we are going to compare modded cars, we can look up a 8 second ****ty Civic that will burn all of us left and right.

"It is best to be thought a fool then to open your mouth and remove all doubt".

A simple Google search would have showed you otherwise.

This whole thread was me mostly saying that the Taurus SHO is a monster to be a grocery getter .. Charger 4365 ..challenger 4203 ..BMW m5 4300 ..02 Z28 Camaro 4200

That was my car without driver. You forget the weight of fluids make a big difference. Car weighs 3680 this year after a pretty hefty diet. More will be coming off/changed this year as well but it's no small feat getting a modern car to 3500 lbs.

BTW, that was also on 16" rear wheels and 17" front wheels, both lighter than factory with race tires. Moving to even lighter 15" all around this year.

+11. Things like sound deadening materials, stereos, and so on that go into modern cars all add up in the end!.. Cars years ago were much more simplistic in both design and materials used!..

Re: Off subject

Stock 1ss camaro - 3860lbs. Base, no options, bare minimums (no one orders this way) Add the 2ss package and such and you're easily over 4000 lbs.

People rarely buy base model cars...this thing has gotten way off topic...but then again what threads don't.

Point is there is alot of weight to move around regardless of what vehicle you buy nowadays.

Yes a charger is 4365. It is also not very fast until you enter the SRTs, which then, are getting burned by 4V 5.0s at half the price, oh and 750 less lbs.

An 02 Camaro is NOT 4200. Where are you reading this? They are about 3500 lbs for a manual.

Correct. That is pretty light.

So manufacturer weights do not include any fluids? Because they do. Often weighed with a portion of gasoline.

A Vert Cobra does weigh that much though. I was looking at the wrong year Cobra. I apologize.

That is all dandy but the statement that the SHO is light was the entire gist. It isn't. Not even close.

A lot of the cars you mentioned make much more power as well and an M5 is a luxury sport car. Similar to what the SHO is except the SHO doesn't turn well.

It is a very tunable car but definitely nothing crazy stock.

The Base SS has very nice standard features. Car can also be had in a 6 speed manual and 4000 is STILL a far cry from 4400 LBS. It also has 50 more HP and not AWD.


No question the SHO is cool but it is ungodly heavy.

The sticker on the door often doesn't say what the car weighs, it is telling you it's full weight it can carry with passengers.
