About The Ford Taurus
The Ford Taurus is an excellent option if you are looking for a fun, comfortable ride that, while not lacking in style, sells itself with substance. This is the kind of car that offers sporty performance and luxury features without wasting effort on being flashy. Additionally, with its spacious interior and available all-wheel-drive (AWD) option, it's a viable alternative to getting an SUV. For example, the 2010 Ford Taurus has 102 cubic feet of interior space. The 2019 Ford Taurus SEL and Limited trims have optional AWD, while the SHO comes standard with AWD. The Taurus is also appealing if you are looking for high performance. The sixth-generation lineup of the Ford Taurus (2010-2019 model years) offers four powerful engine options.
Ford removed the Taurus name from production and replaced it with the Ford 500 full-size sedan line from 2005 to 2007. Ford restored the Taurus name, replacing the 500, for the 2008 and 2009 model years. The main difference between the fifth and the previous generation models is the shift from a midsize sedan body to a full-size sedan body. The sixth-generation featured a redesigned body and re-introduced the high-performance SHO trim. While the sixth-generation Ford Taurus models are consistent between yearly updates, the 2013 mid-generation facelift made a few notable changes to the later models. The mid-generation update added a new 2.0L turbo engine option and upgraded the horsepower on the standard 3.5L V6 engine. The 2013 update also features improved brakes and a sportier-designed hood.
The 2010 Ford Taurus SE comes with a 263 horsepower engine 3.5L Duratec® V6 engine while the 2013 Ford Taurus SE comes with a 288 horsepower 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine. The 2013 Ford Taurus SE, SEL, and Limited trims are all available with the optional 2.0L EcoBoost® engine which trades horsepower for improved torque. The smaller EcoBoost® engine gets 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. The update did not lead to any changes with the upgraded 3.5L EcoBoost™ V6 engine found on the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO models that gets 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.

Q: Is Ford still making the Taurus, or will it be discontinued?
A: If you're looking for a new Ford Taurus, the longer you wait the harder it is going to be to find one because the last model rolled off the production line in March of 2019. However, you can still find a wide range of used sixth generation models at CarMax.
Q: Is Ford Taurus a "full-size car?"
A: The fifth and sixth generation Ford Taurus models are full-size sedans, whereas the previous generation Taurus models are midsize sedans. Ford made the switch to a full-size car when reintroducing the vehicle to market in 2008.
Q: How many people does the Taurus seat?
A: The 2019 Ford Taurus has seating for five occupants.
Q: How much cargo space does the Taurus have in the trunk?
A: The trunk capacity did not go through much change across the sixth generation. Both the 2010 Ford Taurus and 2019 Ford Taurus feature 20.1 cubic feet of trunk cargo space.

Reviews for Ford Taurus
Really beautiful car.
Gas mileage is my first complaint. I drove a Mercury Marquis for the last 14 years (a 2001 and a 2007) they both got much better mileage than this Taurus. The Taurus is really hard to see out of. I am 5'9 and my husband is 6'2" both of us complain about the difficulty seeing out of it. The back seat head rests block visibility. The rear end sits so high that even with the back up camera I have found that it sometimes does "see" obstacles like steep embankments. The front end blocks visibility when going over a steep drop (we live in a mountainous area) so these 2 may be specific problems to the terrain we live in.
Love my Ford Taurus
Love my car! We have had two storms already this fall. One with freezing rain/light snow and one with just 4 inches of snow. My car is just front wheel drive but it did great. Of I also used common sense too. This car has a lot more clearance then my last so I really believe when we get a storm with 6 inches of snow I will be able to get around. The car may also be a little too smart, likes to turn my stereo down. Lol. Like the phone sync feature. Dont have the backup camera or navigation. Didn't really need it. I also was afraid of the affects of fluctuating tempetures on the screen.I use my phones navigation and the car does have back up sensors which is nice. I am having a remote start installed since I live in cold climate
Nice car at a nice price
Its a good car, three stars, a real solid B-minus grade. Reasonably quiet and comfortable, great mileage, and big. I had owned a 2010 Taurus and wanted an upgrade, but not too much of one. I went from a silver SEL to a black/black limited. I expect to drive this car for three years with no problems and the price was right. I got the extended warranty just in case. If I had to do it over again, I might've gone for a Buick LaCrosse, but this car has tons of bells and whistles at about $4K less. Nice sedan.
