Explore the classic styling of the large and luxurious Ford Taurus. With a huge trunk space and room to seat 5, this car is perfect for longer journeys.
The Ford Taurus Takes the Bull by the Horns
The sedan has had a difficult time in recent years with the crossover making this class of cars far less popular than in the past. However, the Ford Taurus still has plenty to offer and with a high-class design and superior comfort, there are lots of reasons why it's so popular. The Taurus is available with four different trims, including the sporty SHO model. Under the hood, you'll find a V6 3.5-litre engine as standard that's capable of producing 288 horsepower and 254 lb.-ft. of torque. This can be switched for the four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0 litre or in the SHO, drivers will find a somewhat grittier V6 twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre engine. The inside of the car is spacious without being huge, with enough room to comfortably seat five without being crowded. The trunk has very generous dimensions with 20 cubic feet able to accommodate five golf bags if needed. This sedan is large and heavy, handling more like an SUV, particularly with its high riding position on the road. For those who like their cars to feel solid and sturdy, the Taurus will tick every box.
Luxury Features to Appreciate
The large and imposing silhouette of the vehicle on the outside would lead most people to assume that the interior is a luxurious affair ...and they wouldn't be far wrong. In the front, the seats have not just heating but cooling and massage functions too, ensuring drivers and passengers are always riding in total comfort. As you rise up through the different trims, leather upholstery is added along with other extras including high-performance tires, dual zone climate control, satellite radio and and 8-inch touchscreen for entertainment and driving controls. Even the entry-level model has some impressive touches with automatic headlights, a rear camera and the Sync voice-activated technology all fitted as standard.
Making Security a Priority
In every safety test, the Taurus has scored high which is one of the reasons why this vehicle was chosen by law enforcement officers for their fleet. Electronic stability control systems combine with ABS, traction control, roll sensors, front and side airbags as well as a post-collision alert system. There's a range of optional features which can be added too such as blind spot monitoring, automatic braking, and collision warning. Higher trims feature perimeter lighting and an alarm combined with the passive anti-theft system fitted as standard on every car. The Ford Taurus is one of the classic models that has never gone out of fashion. Large, imposing and luxurious, the Taurus is a car for those who enjoy a touch of extravagance.
