Quick Quotes
Dashboard and interior door panels are thickly padded, as in the Lincoln MKS, and the ambient lighting in the interior door pockets and footwells, available in seven colors, is as trick as in any German luxury car. The Taurus' center stack expands out from a deep dash, cocooning the driver almost like a sporty car with a "cockpit"-style driver's seat.The driver's seat is stingy with bolstering though, and it feels as if you're sitting on it, not in it.

The Ford Taurus bridges the gap between family sedans and luxury cars. Lower-priced trim levels will be compared to the Honda Accord, Hyundai Azera and Toyota Avalon. The Limited will compete with entry-level luxury sedans like the Hyundai Genesis, Lincoln's MKS and MKZ, and the Nissan Maxima. The SHO is clearly aimed at Chrysler's 300C. Among this crowd, we think pretty highly of the new Taurus.

Introduction

The Ford Taurus has a lot to offer in terms of comfort and refinement, but it's a dated design.The Taurus was last redesigned for the 2010 model year and restyled for 2013.

Not much has changed for 2016, apart from making a rearview camera standard on all models.The latest SYNC 3 connectivity technology comes on upper models, but lower trim levels retain SYNC with MyFord system.

Although the original Taurus of the late 1980s flaunted a rather radical design for its time, the current version is far different.Less efficient than more contemporary full-size sedans, and not as sharply styled, Taurus has barely kept pace with such rivals as the Chevrolet Impala, Hyundai Azera and Toyota Avalon.Fuel economy is mediocre.

However, the Taurus offers luxurious cabin amenities, with good-looking interior trim that feels substantial.Although the ride is firm, a Taurus is quiet and comfortable.

Three engines are available, all with a 6-speed automatic transmissions.All-wheel drive is optional on SEL and Limited trim levels with the V6; front-wheel drive is standard.Most models will come with the 3.5-liter V6, developing 288 horsepower and EPA-rated at 19/29 mpg City/Highway.The most fuel-efficient engine is the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, making 237 horsepower and EPA-rated at 22/32 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined.All-wheel drive drops the estimate to 18/26 mpg.

Topping the performance spectrum, the Taurus SHO carries the highest-output engine: a turbocharged V6 that generates 365 horsepower, offered only with all-wheel drive.Though it doesn't engage the driver as directly as an authentic sports sedan, the SHO feels calm even when driven hard, and corners capably thanks to a tauter suspension.Gas mileage is EPA-rated at 17/25 mpg.

Taurus has a good safety reputation, though few active-safety features are available.The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2016 Taurus five stars (out of five) for overall safety, side, and frontal crash tests, and four stars for rollover.The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives Taurus its top Good rating, though it hasn't been subjected to the new small-overlap test.
