Overview

Conventional wisdom says if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But that's exactly what Ford did with the all-new Taurus and Mercury Sable last year, a family of sedans and wagons that are even more daringly styled than the 1986 original. Some said the new car was too radical to maintain Ford's mid-size leadership. Wrong. Though it started slowly, the Taurus emerged as the '96 sales champ, once again beating Honda's Accord.
