The Taurus carries over with only a handful of minor changes. There are three new exterior colors, plus a re-juggling of what features are standard equipment on which models. For example, a rearview camera is now standard on the SE sedan, as is Ford Sync.
About Ford Taurus
Ford’s 2016 Taurus full-size sedan may be getting a little old and a bit behind the competition, but it still has its admirers. You’ll find more room, better visibility and a more modern interior in cars like the Toyota Avalon, Chevrolet Impala and even the Dodge Charger, but the Taurus offers a wider range of trims, engines and features, including the high-performance Taurus SHO. Offering an economical 2.0-liter turbo on the SEL and Limited trims, plus available all-wheel drive with the V6 (it’s standard on the SHO), the Taurus bests the front-drive-only Impala and Avalon. But the Taurus doesn’t offer a hybrid model, nor are its driver-assist features as up to date as many of its newer, more technically advanced competitors.
