Love it!

2010 Ford Taurus K Pinckney - San Antonio, TX 03/17/2016

The Exterior styling is excellent. It's not crazy, but it's not a boring sedan. The contours and lines give the car a unique look that does not compare to any car from any angle. The interior is interesting wherever you look. The interior lights at night rock. The dash is very cockpit like and even when you have a bunch of people in the car, it feels like you have your own space. Every button is within reach of everything. It's a great driving car. Kinda commands the road as you drive. It's comfy moving down the highways and byways.

Loving It

2010 Ford Taurus Lady D - Spring, Tx 11/28/2011

I am very pleased with my Ford Taurus. It is an excellent car, full of a lot of features. Ford really put a lot into this car. I was very excited and surprise to see the many features and quality of the car. Very good gas mileage too. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a nice luxury car at a great price.

Wide body smoothness

2010 Ford Taurus Iceman - Chesapeake Va. 07/10/2011

I compared this car to Buick and Cadillac before making the buy, and this was the best buy for the money. The ride is just as smooth as a caddy and you get more power and car compared to the Buick. The other dilemma was choosing between the Taurus limited or sel, the all black sel won with the sunroof and everything else that came with the sel except the memory seat, which I did'nt need. The limited had no sunroof nor heated seats, all models have the same engine except the sho, so I got a vehicle with the same performance as a limited for thousands less and more features for me. Love the ride and acceleration...

2010 Ford Taurus Overview

Redesigned for 2010, the stylish, fast, comfortable Ford Taurus is sure to delight long-time fans and first-time drivers alike.

2010 Ford Taurus History

Ford revamped the style and substance of the 2010 Taurus to create a more attractive front-runner in the sedan segment.

  • The Taurus was discontinued in the 2007 model year due to waning demand, but was revived quickly thereafter.
  • The 2010 Ford Taurus kicked off the sixth generation.
  • The 2010 model year also marked the return of the Ford Taurus SHO (which stands for Super High Output).

How It Drives

The Ford Taurus has some serious punch and precision - it moves smartly, and acceleration feels smooth. The feature-rich sedan can be tame, but it has the performance capabilities to bring some excitement to the driving experience. This stylish vehicle is made to cruise down the highway. It's comfortable and controlled, ensuring that it does well in cities full of turns and stoplights. It has a quiet cabin, which is a boon to drivers when it comes to the noise associated with day-to-day driving.

Used 2010 Ford Taurus Value

The Ford Taurus is in an extremely competitive car segment. When it goes up against the likes of the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Chevrolet Malibu, and Nissan Altima, it can be difficult to choose the best sedan. For this segment, it's a game of inches - the sedans are all similar enough that the differences may not be noticed without a few days of driving. When it comes to fuel efficiency, the Taurus has trouble competing against the likes of the economic Honda Accord. Instead, the core strength of the Taurus is its highest trim's strong performance.

Design & Performance

For the 2010 edition of the Ford Taurus, it's interesting to note the car's shape. It's a lot more sports-like and sculpted at first glance than previous editions. It has a crisp profile - front fenders are more pronounced and the roof is lower. There are, wraparound headlights, and a broad upper chrome bar.

There are several versions:

  • The base-level Taurus SE
  • The Taurus SEL, which has more features than the standard
  • The upscale Taurus Limited
  • The performance-oriented Taurus SHO

Performance is stellar for all engine types, but the Taurus SHO has the best overall horsepower due to its turbocharged V6 engine. Additionally, all trim levels have similar fuel economies.

Powertrain & Engine

The Ford Taurus sports a 3.5L V6 engine. The engine provides 263 horsepower and is paired with a six-speed automatic typically, with paddle shifters on the two higher trim levels. The Taurus is front-wheel drive at its base, but it can be swapped out for all-wheel drive instead. Fuel economy is impressive for its power, earning 18 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway.

The Taurus SHO trim level has a much stronger engine to work with. It has 365 horsepower due to the turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine. This equates to going from zero to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds. The difference in fuel efficiency between the two engine options is negligible.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

Notably, this iteration is a full-size vehicle, up from midsize. It has more sheet metal and interior space to play with. Overall, the Ford Taurus has a lower, sportier stance than it did in previous iterations. It has much more character with defined features on the outside. On the interior, the Taurus is much more organized.

  • The low center console divides the front and back rows.
  • The instrument cluster is organized efficiently, but may be hard to read.
  • Base Taurus vehicles have faux-wood and plastic trim.
  • Features are generous on the base level.
