Choosing Your Ford Taurus

The standard engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 288 horsepower; optional is a 240-horsepower turbocharged 2-liter inline-four. The sportier SHO is powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 and features standard all wheel drive. All have a six-speed automatic transmission—the SHO has paddle shifters.

But the first step is choosing between front-wheel and all-wheel drive:

  • Front-Wheel Drive
  • All-Wheel Drive

Buyers then choose from four trim levels—whether you want a bargain, a near-luxury experience or a performance ride, there's something for you:


It's back to basics in the base SE, where standard features include a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a power driver's seat, a steering wheel with controls for audio and cruise control, and power windows. The SE is available only with front-wheel drive.


The SEL adds features like a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, remote start, satellite radio, SYNC, an 8-inch color LCD touch screen, and folding power mirrors. All-wheel drive is optional.


The Limited comes with features like leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a lane-keeping system, a rearview camera, and ambient lighting. As it is on the SEL, all-wheel drive is optional.


The most powerful Taurus churns out 365 horsepower. It has standard all-wheel drive, a sport-tuned suspension and aluminum pedals.

CarsDirect Tip

The mid-range SEL is probably the best choice for most buyers. But each trim level will appeal to a different buyer, so let your budget and needs guide your decision.
