In its waning days, the last generation Taurus was produced strictly for rental fleets before disappearing entirely at the end of the 2006 model year. The new Taurus and Taurus X owe nothing to that car and trace their structural origins to Volvo.

About Ford Taurus X

When it comes to the Ford Taurus X, the name is familiar and so is the vehicle, but for different reasons. That name belonged to a car that radicalized the world of mid-size sedans and wagons when it first appeared as a 1986 model, but then declined over the years to rental fleet anonymity. The vehicle itself, meanwhile, made an all but invisible debut as the Ford Freestyle, its solid foundations clad in forgettable sheetmetal and propelled by an engine unequal to the task. In 2008, Ford returned the Taurus nameplate to their big wagon and along the way added a substantial list of significant upgrades, as well as earning a spot in Kelley Blue Book's list of Best New Family Vehicles. Offered in front- and all-wheel drive editions, the Taurus X stacks up as crossover worthy of attention.

"Just wanted to say that I am 33 year-old guy with a wife and a kid and 3 dogs, and this is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. The only drawback is that sometimes my friends poke fun and say they like my minivan. Believe me, it is way more comfortable, way more stylish, and way outperforms any minivan and even a lot of SUV's. I had a 2005 Pathfinder before this, and I am so glad I traded it. This seems to have A LOT more room on the inside than most SUV's. 3 rows of seats that can fold down, nice features on the inside, and drives great as well. I LOVE IT! Gas mileage is OK (Better than most SUV's), even on trips hauling the whole family, our Christmas stuff, and dogs. NOTE: IF YOU WANT CROSS BARS FOR THIS GO WITH 58" YAKIMA BARS and YAKIMA DOUBLECROSS OR LOWRIDER towers. They work well. Sears Sport Cargo Carrier fits well on here also. Will be loading it down this summer as we head from VA to Colorado for a mountain biking trip. Will update and let ya know how it performed, but looking forward to riding 5000 miles in style!"

"I knew I wanted a car with room, comfort, good visibilty and versatility. I get all of it in this car. We bought this after test driving almost all of the suv's that were out there and this was hands down the best of the bunch. Ours seats six and is very comfortable when we have the kids and grandkids with us. The rear heating/ac is a great options as those temps can be set apart from the front. Controls on the ceiling are a great option. No yelling from the back to turn heat up/down . Visability is good but not excellent as the rear pillars make a blind spot. The ride is very comfortable and the interior is extremely quiet. Never thought I would care if I had the multi cd option but that's great. I would upgrade to the premium sound if able. Also would have liked the heated seats but we bought this off the lot as is. The storage is great and things are well thought out there. With the ability to change seating I can turn my vehcle from a car to a mini van, station wagon or a really comfotable pickup truck! We have drivin this cross country multiple times in the last 4 years and we normally get about 22 mpg so that's pretty good for the weight but of course it would be better for that to be a little better. I would highly recommend this car to anyone and our daughter and husband bought the flex and love it also"

"This was a great car. I say was because a commercial truck ran a red light at over 50 mph and hit my wife and two kids. The car did its job and kept everyone safe. It had tons of room for the kids and all their "junk" and I felt better knowing my wife was in a safe car. This car will be missed."
