The Taurus has been a good friend to the Ford
family for so many years. But now as it finds its way towards the end
of its life we want to take the time to celebrate what the Taurus has been to Ford and review
its final incarnation as it drives off into the sunset. Join as we take a look at the 2018 Ford Taurus. First bursting on the scene in 1986 the Ford
Taurus was an advancement in car technology for the time. Introducing streamlined aerodynamic rounded
shapes in a time of square boxy cars. The Taurus rode a wave of success becoming
the bestselling car in America from 1992 to 1996. Also finding success in the NASCAR ranks the Taurus
was a household name and even spawned variants from the traditional sedan with the Taurus
Wagon and Taurus X crossover. In 2010 the world was introduced to the current
sixth generation that has found a home with the local police force as well as in the heart
of performance enthusiasts with its SHO trim. The current generation should be familiar
to most as an intimidating design just without the blue lights on top. The current Taurus is however is not lacking
on modern features such as HID headlamps and LED tail lamps. Dual chrome tipped exhausts are standard across
the trim line and the powerful styling of the SHO does not go unnoticed with its unique
grille and rear spoiler. The large design of this full size car allows
it to boast a lot of trunk space as well as an interior that is as comfortable as it is
stylish. As we move to the interior the high quality
materials and craftsmanship is apparent with soft touch features and leather trim throughout
the dash, center console, and doors. The wood trim adds a nice touch in the limited
and the SHO proves sporty with the option for Miko suede inserted seats, aluminum accents,
a leather wrapped steering wheel and SHO embroidered on the head rests. For comfort the Taurus features a heated steering
wheel, heated and cooled front seats, and heated rear seats standard on the limited
and SHO. Dual zone climate control and a premium Sony
audio system with clear phase and live acoustics finish off a luxurious interior experience. For a car first introduced in 2010 one might
think that it might not be up to par with the latest and greatest technology in your
typical 2018 sedan.

However the Taurus does not disappoint with
available active cruise control which allows the driver to select a set distance to the
car in front of it and the system will slow and even bring your car to a complete stop
if traffic in front dictates to do so. In concert the forward collision warning with
brake support works seamlessly to identify potential collisions and will alert the driver
with a red warning bar on the windshield and additionally pre charge the brakes to increase
sensitivity and provide full responsiveness. The lane keeping system will alert and even
aide you if it senses unintentional lane departure by one of your wheels. A vibration on the steering wheel and/or coupled
with torque steer to the appropriate wheel will make sure your Taurus is safely back
between the lines. BLIS with cross traffic alert will warn you
of those traveling in your blind spot and those crossing behind when backing out of
a parking spot. Intelligent access with push button start
allows you to keep you fob in your pocket or purse without the need to manually unlock
the doors for entry or to turn a key to start the engine. SYNC 3 is the Ford standard touch screen infotainment
system across the board and this easy to you smartphone like interface is intuitive and
intelligent. Access to both android auto and apple car
play and you have yourself a sure fire 2018 worthy ride. Powering the Taurus is the base 3.5L V6 engine
that delivers 288 horsepower and a standard select shift automatic 6 speed transmission. All wheel drive is optional on the SEL and
Limited and standard on the SHO. The SHO kicks up the numbers by adding two
turbochargers to its 365 horsepower EcoBoost engine and delivers and impressive 350 foot
pounds of torque. All models come with standard torque vectoring
and curve control to make sure you are never loosing traction under acceleration or through
the turns. While we must say goodbye to the Taurus it
has been a great run, and not to the jump the gun the Taurus is still here for us to enjoy
