Overview

One of Ford’s oldest nameplates, the Taurus bears all the hallmarks of the classic American full-sized sedan. It’s a big-car with a comfortable, quiet ride and confident handling. Ford has worked hard to keep the Taurus competitive by offering an update to its design a few years ago and adding technology to all its models this year.

What's New for 2015

Changes to the Taurus this year are minor, and include a standard rearview camera on the SE.

Ford Taurus

Choosing Your Ford Taurus

The Taurus’ standard engine continues to be a 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 288 horsepower and an estimated 19 mpg city/29 mpg highway. An optional 2-liter inline-four EcoBoost engine with 240-horsepower (22 mpg city/32 mpg highway) is also available on the SE, SEL and Limited models. The SHO is equipped with a sportier 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that is turbocharged to generate 365 horsepower and features all-wheel drive standard. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on every model.

The four trim levels offered for the Taurus vary widely from bargain to performance and the prices certainly reflect that range. So if you know what kind of experience you're looking for odds are there is a Taurus model that will fit the bill.

Ford Taurus

SE

As with many entry-level Ford models, the base SE is still a very basic package when it comes to amenities. Standard feature include six-way power-adjustable driver and passenger seats, remote keyless entry, power windows, rearview camera and curve control. The SE is only available with front-wheel drive.

Ford Taurus

SEL

Moving to the SEL level adds a fair number of interior niceties like dual-zone air-conditioning remote start. 8-inch color LCD touch screen, satellite radio, heating and folding power mirrors as well as 18-inch wheels. Options available on the SEL include all-wheel drive and leather-trimmed heated front seats.

Ford Taurus

Limited

Stepping up to the Limited trim adds a significant bump in price without delivering much more in the amenities department. The Limited adds on keyless entry with push-button start, leather-trimmed heated and cooled front seats, blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert and 19-inch wheels. All-wheel drive is optional.

Ford Taurus

SHO

The SHO is another large step up in price, but it's the top of the line Taurus and it shows. Nearly everything about the SHO is focused on delivering a more controlled, higher performance driving experience. It adds on features like a sport-tuned suspension, standard all-wheel drive, traction control, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and 20-inch wheels.

CarsDirect Tip

There are appealing features available at every trim level, but we still feel like a well-equipped SEL is going to represent your best overall value.
