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.

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.

My 2015 Taurus and 2002 F150 Supercrew 4X4

"I love the looks and overall rich feel of my 2014 Limited. It seems to fly under the radar and I don't see many on the road. Pity, this is not the Taurus of 10 or 20 years ago. For such a heavy car, it really likes to get up and cruise down the interstate at 75 while getting 28 mph!"

"Comfortable and sporty drive. I like the stiffer drive rather than a vehicle that floats. Easy to control and ABS system definitely works well. Not impressed with the sync system. Would rated it higher if the sync electronics worked better."

"We just bought our 2016 Ford Taurus SE and we could not be happier with it. No initial quality problems and the value for a family sedan is outstanding. I like that our family of 4 fits so easily in it since the kids are now grown up and bigger than Mom and Dad. The standard features such as rear view camera and hands-free calling with Ford Sync are great."
