2010 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


59K miles on a‘08, 1000 miles on my ’10 this week. ‘10 Taurus is structurally a ‘08 with lipstick. ‘08Taurus was commodious. 6'3" & I was comfortable in rear of the '08, no way in the ‘10. The Fusion only has one inch less rear leg room than the new Taurus! Ford chopped the roof for zoom zoom” design. Small outside mirrors and large headrests create a bad visibility problem. Outward vision is akin to a machine gun bunker. If we cut you off on the highway; it’s not intentional we just can’t see you. The old Taurus had lots of storage for CD's, GPS, chargers, PC power supply, snacks, etc. Not the ‘10. Why delete the overhead sunglass receptacle?! Nice car, could have been great.

Best Features

Same 3.5 V-6 / 6 speed tranny the ’08- ’09 Taurus had. No complaint; good power train; smooth, fuel efficient, good torque for this class car.

Worst Features

Employ a little more mature thought in the design process. No reason to sacrifice room (basic premise of large sedan should be interior room/comfort) at the altar of zoom zoom design. Lack of outward visibility is a major compromise to safety. Bring back the sunglass receptacle!!
