Ford Taurus Overview

The Taurus puts styling ahead of interior comfort, driver visibility, and ease of use, and the convoluted MyFord Touch control system makes matters worse. Fuel economy from the 3.5-liter V6 is 21 mpg. The six-speed automatic can be slow to shift and is not that smooth. All-wheel drive is offered with the V6. A more fuel-efficient and refined turbo four-cylinder is available. Otherwise, the Taurus is quiet, rides comfortably, and has lots of features. Handling is responsive but not sporty, and the turning circle is wide. The SHO, with standard all-wheel drive, is quick but not that engaging to drive. A rear-view camera is standard for 2015. Reliability of the Taurus has improved to average.
