The suspension in the Taurus SHO has distinctive sport-tuned shock absorbers, stabilizer bars, strut mount bushings and springs intended to deliver cornering agility, steering responsiveness and remarkable road handling.
Since the Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) technology is perceptive of speed and powered by an electric motor as an alternative to a hydraulic pump, it can enhance the feel of steering. This technology also utilizes pull-drift compensation to assist drivers with vehicle pulling that can arise when driving on uneven roads or in crosswinds.
