2013 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Great vehicle, had a SEL 201A NAV
for about 7 months.
Traded for another 2013 SEL
this time with 202A NAV/Moonroof/Leather/Spoiler during a end of June Sale.
Total fluke that this new one was the same color as the 201A but price was price and I probably would have jumped on that markdown whatever the color was.
V6 is plenty powerful in the mountains, and PA turnpike.
Leather is soft, and supple and heated for winter.
Girlfriend has back problems and she occasionally uses the heated seats as a heating pad.
High trunk line, I highly recommend the 202A package with back up camera...other parts of the package make it worth it such as keyless start/adjustable pedals/ambient lighting/ SYNC

Best Features

Keyless/Remote Start SEL and above have Remote Start. Option Package 202A adds keyless/pushbutton start. Other comforts of the package are back up camera/ambient lighting/SYNC with My Ford Touch/19" wheels Stand alone options are Navigation/Moon roof/Leather-Front heated and trunk spoiler. Although not included in this model the other two stand alone factory options are 2.0 Eco Boost single turbo 4 cylinder engine and All Wheel Drive Keyless start also works for opening trunk/doors with just a swipe of the hand as long as the key fob is in the area.

Worst Features

Electric parking brake to add driver foot well space. Fuel trip computer that counts down from the tank capacity (19.0 Gallons) as in 19.0 18,,17,,15,,12,,,etc.... instead of gallons used. Trip computer that allows driver to reset the clock mode individually and not the whole computer.
