About Ford Taurus

The 2017 Ford Taurus is a large 5-passenger sedan that’s offered in four trim levels, SE, SEL, Limited and the performance-oriented SHO, which features a twin-turbocharged V6 and all-wheel drive. The new Taurus competes in the crowded full-size-sedan segment against such rivals as the Toyota Avalon, Chevrolet Impala, Dodge Charger, Kia Cadenza and Hyundai Azera, as well as the Buick LaCrosse. And it’s a bit behind much of that competition, in design, available technologies and interior volume. You’ll find more room, better visibility and more modern interiors elsewhere, but the new Taurus offers a wide range of trims, engines and features, including the high-performance Taurus SHO, an economical 2.0-liter turbo, plus available all-wheel drive with the V6.

"I love the feel and handling characteristics of the 2010 Ford Taurus. Quiet and powerful. It feels (and sounds) the same at 55 as it does at 80 (or more). The interior leather with heated and cooled seats are a perk worth having, and so is the sunroof. The cockpit design is roomy and comfortable with good lumbar support where it's needed. The trunk is HUGE which is important for me since I move every couple years for the military! It got my family of four and all our luggage and gifts including a Power Wheels jeep home from Christmas vacation. I get about 23 mpg in the city and 27 on the hwy. I still get compliments on how sharp this car looks, and I've had it for about 4 years now. My favorite comment was a guy who said "That car isn't your daddy's Taurus." The sharp new look combined with all the safety features makes this my favorite car owned yet. I would definitely buy another."

"Vehicle has all the performance and bells and whistles for this type of car. There should be more distinction between a regular Taurus and the SHO models. The exterior should be more aggressive for the SHO models."

Both my Fords!

"This car is so awesome! I love all aspects of it and except for my 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe, my favorite Ford car period. I get plenty of compliments on it, too! I like the fact that I don't see too many of them on the road, which I believe is bad marketing on Ford's part!"
