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 bought this for a replacement to my GMC Suburban. I love this car, it rids well, has a great layout, very quiet, roomy and the 'rear backup alert' has saved me a few times. The only thing I dont like is the engine is a little under developed. It has no real power for passing and defianetly no "get up & go", unlike my suburban. It takes 2000RPM to pull out of my driveway...and thats why it doesnt get great MPG. Other than that the DVD system is awesome for the kids (got the wireless headphones!), lots of room for their drinking cups= no spills, third row seat for the dog and spare passengers AND it still has room for groceries or suitcases. It took awhile to find a nice vehicle I could fit a family of 5 into and still have suitcase room. Highly recommend it for the mid-large size families."

"I have a 2008 Taurus X with AWD. It has plenty of power, and it rides very smoothly. I love all of the room in it, and I love the body style. The top of the dash and trim on the doors seem a little cheap for the car, but the power seats and leather interior are very nice. I average 23 MPG per tank, and that includes city and highway driving. Overall, I love my X, and I would reccomend it to my friends."
