Overview

The Ford Taurus just keeps on ticking. The Taurus was last redesigned and re-engineered for 2000, but Ford has been continuously improving this solid sedan. The Taurus offers excellent drivetrains, good looks, plenty of creature comforts, and the added bonus of a surprising level of driving pleasure. The styling has been revised for 2004. A new grille and fascia freshen the front, while new taillamps and fascia dress up the rear. The 2004 Taurus interior is further improved with an updated steering wheel and instrument cluster and an updated multi-function switch for the wipers, turn signals and flash-to-pass. The 2004 Taurus engine and transmission offer improved efficiency and shift quality. The interior was updated for 2003, resulting in a quieter cabin. Cabin noise was reduced through better sealing and sound damping measures. Seat fabrics, both leather and cloth, were improved, with lighter colors used to brighten the car's interior, the dashboard was revised, and controls for the adjustable pedals were moved to the instrument panel for easier access. Ford has been offering big incentives on the Taurus, so buyers should watch for cash rebates and cut-rate financing.
