The early to mid '90s Ford Taurus showed incremental improvements rather than major revamping. Those improvements included added durability and reduced noise and vibration for the base 3.0-liter engine, and new struts for all models to improve ride and reduce dive and pitch. The big news was a new SE model that Ford hoped to attract younger buyers. This sport sedan, priced slightly higher than a fully equipped base GL model, came with the base 140-horsepower 3.0-liter V6, 4-speed automatic transmission, unique trim and optional SHO-style spoiler. The SE joined the rest of the regular Taurus lineup in a midsize melee that included Chevrolet Lumina, Dodge Intrepid, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Nissan Maxima, Mazda 626 and Hyundai Sonata. A mainstream family car, Taurus came in four trim levels, GL, SE, LX and the hot-rod SHO. The base GL and upscale LX were available in both sedan and station wagon models. The powertrain lineup started with the base 140-hp 3.0-liter V6, with a 3.8-liter V6 optional in GL, SE and LX models. This engine also came standard in LX wagons, and although it was also rated at 140 hp, it produced 50 ft.-lb. more pulling power. The SHO Taurus, the real sportster in the lineup, had a special handling suspension and came with one of two Yamaha-built V6s, depending on the choice of manual or automatic transmission. Both these dohc, 24-valve engines were rated at 220 hp, but the automatic version pumped out 15 ft.-lb. more torque.
