    I've driven both...believe it or not...SHO feels MUCH bigger, heavier, bulkier...

    PLUS...MARAUDER is more rare.

    is that with the trilogy on it?

    stock marauders feel pretty darn slow to me, they are rather comfy tho which is why my marauder is my highway bruiser

    Tuned newer SHO / Lincoln MKZ will run with a trilogy Marauder. You know the MM scene - can you live with the smaller cabin of the SHO? AWD is nice if you have to deal with any winter weather.

    Da wife just bought a Marauder. What a cruiser. It's no cobra but still fun to drive. Can't wait to go on a trip in it.

    I have a 15 SHO. It's a good car. Fun to drive full sized boat with a decent amount of torque and go juice.

    It's a pretty fast couch.

    Downside is that it would seem that anything liquid touches in the drivetrain is less robust than owners would like, with issues popping up around 80-100K miles.

    I had been looking at getting a SHO two years ago and ended up buying a 13 MKS EcoBoost. My 04 Marauder has been down for several years waiting for a built motor/trans and redoing basically everything on it. The MKS was cheaper than any local SHO around me with less miles and ton more options. It's definitely more of a sleeper than a SHO. With a tune it does not feel like its 4500+ lb vehicle, don't waste gas on rolls, it shines from a dig. Recommend looking at the SHO and MKS 2015 and newer only because they have Sync 3, worlds better than Sync 2 like I have.

    I think the SHO is a great looking car inside and out. Good power and decent room. Its no marauder, but easy to make power.
