The Taurus has been in Ford’s lineup one way or another for twenty years. During that time however it did live under the name of the Ford Five Hundred from 2005-2007 before returning to the Taurus name. That three year period is an important time for the Taurus however as upon returning to the Taurus name it also grew from being classified as a mid-sized to full-sized sedan. This current generation is the sixth in the series and has been on sale since 2010. Just by looking at it you can see how Ford wanted to define it against its competition by featuring a wide, powerful stance and taught body panels adding to the Taurus’s muscular look.
The Taurus has three engine options for you to choose from including a standard 3.5L V6 and an economical 2.0L Inline four. For those looking a little extra power should choose the SHO trim line (short for Super High Output) featuring a twin-turbo V6 producing 365-hp. All-wheel drive is optional for those needing the extra security and the standard transmission is a six-speed automatic. A sport-tuned suspension delivering a firmer, more accurate driving feel comes standard on the SHO model as well. There are a number of available driver safety systems such as cross-traffic alert, a lane-keeping system, and even an adaptive cruise control system with collision warning that will also activate the brakes if the vehicle thinks you will not be able to stop in time.
The interior of the Taurus is a warm, welcoming place to be, filled with soft touch seating surfaces and other high-quality materials. There are a number of available interior options including a heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, and even multicontour seating with active seating to keep you comfortable on those long journeys. Ford’s signature SYNC® system is available as well as the undated SYNC® 3 system featuring faster performing software, an easier to read display, and a more advanced voice recognition system- a system which commonly has glitches no matter what manufacturer it comes from. A smartkey access system is available on thee SEL trim while coming standard on the Limited and SHO trims. The Ford Taurus is meant to compete with the Chevrolet Impala, Kia Cadenza, and Volkswagen CC.
