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.

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.

Reviews for Ford Taurus
Ford Has A Winner Here!!!
The Ford Taurus SEL is a beautiful vehicle with luxurious interior and the exterior has the beauty of a luxury car and still has a sporty look to it! The Taurus has a lot of bells and whistles that make life easier for the driver. I love the memory seats with 2 options for different drivers while having comfortable leather seats for those long drives. I absolutely love and enjoy the sunroof, the back up camera is great and something I’ve never had. I am impressed with the Sony Stereo, which I use Sony in my home entertainment center, TVs and dvd/blue ray, BLS system, heated seats and even the added cooled seats makes for better summers here in the hot California summer of 100+ temperatures, sunroof to enjoy those rare spring and autumn days, automatic brights, sensors everywhere for everything, and has great get up and go with around 292 hp! This is my 2nd Ford Taurus after my 2000 that I still wished I had. I am looking for a 2018 Ford Taurus SHO because I need to have a sedan for when I am taking family or hanging out with friends and don’t necessarily want to drive my Ford Expedition or my husband’s Chevy Silverado. This car is still sharp looking after more than a decade of hardly refreshing its looks, competitive powerhouse and drives like a luxury sedan. I would absolutely recommend this vehicle to a family with decent leg room for the front and back seat passengers. I also loved seeing it in the driveway. You won’t regret this vehicle and if you take care of it…it’ll last a long time…my 2000 had 165,789 miles on it before and traded it in after owning it for 15 years on the 2011, which I traded in on my husband’s Silverado unfortunately.
- Reliability: The reliability of Ford is as good as Honda and Toyota.
- Styling: The very sleek and sporty exterior and luxurious interior is a home run on the scoresheet…
- Ride and Handling: Drives like a dream…boat, big and safe. Very easy to drive and airbags everywhere…you’ll have the comfort for road trips or trips to KMart lol!
- Fuel Economy: Fuel economy is not great, but to be expected with a car this size and the powerful engine.
- Technology and Entertainment: The Infotainment system could be better placed for the driver to navigate it while driving, but once you are familiar with it…it’s not too bad!
- Visibility: A few blind spots with this sedan, but again, once you get used to driving this car, you will have no issues. Just like with most cars.
Fast, comfortable, good value
I love this car (Ford Taurus SHO). I test drove a bunch of full sized "sport sedans" and this one was the sweet spot for power, speed, comfort, and tech gadgets. It's big and comfortable. The Ford Sync system is easy to use (especially compared to Lexus' info-tainment nightmare). I also like that it's AWD, and really, really, quick for a car this size with all the luxury goodies. It's also a Ford, so it was cheap compared to the Japanese or German brands I drive where 20% of the price I would pay was for a badge. It will also be cheaper to maintain. It does not get great has mileage, but that's to be expected with AWD and a twin-turbo V-6 in a full sized sedan.
- Technology and Entertainment:
- Fuel Economy:
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.
- Fuel Economy: 19/26...not too shabby for a car this size
- Power: Decent HP
- Reliability: I dont' expect problems. Owned a 2010 SEL for 4 years and no issues at all.
- Technology and Entertainment: The Ford Sync system is unnecessarily busy and confusing. The dashboard controls are kinda annoying.
- Cabin Noise: More pronounced than the 2010 model
- Cargo Space: Less than the 2010
