Ford Taurus Summary

The Ford Taurus is a quality sedan with an aerodynamic design and many high-tech features. It rides comfortably and quietly, making it excellent for city-use and highway driving alike. If fuel economy is important to you, then stay away from the more expensive trim levels, such as the SHO, which includes a larger, less efficient engine. At one time the best selling car in the U.S., production of the Ford Taurus will end in 2019 due to declining sales. For drivers who value its quiet engine and excellent safety ratings, it will be worth the effort to seek it out.
