Awesome car drives like a charm
I took a rental 2017 Fors Taurus from Avis for a vacation from NJ to NC and Tennessee. We covered 1761 miles in total from start to finish. We wanted a tough car for the journey offering great comfort, power, fuel efficiency / economy and this car met all our expectations through out our journey. I loved driving this car, it was very smooth, peppy and we never got tired. I was also surprised by the fuel efficiency it offered. It gave me 40.4 mi to a gallon which is exceptional. The best I had seen was 34.6 in a Camry. I couldn't imagine a car if this size could offer and with all the reviews I read and the promise what the company made which is 30 mi to a gallon, this went far beyond. I double checked all the receipts which I normally keep track during every vacation whether or not I missed something, but I was spot on.i was also amazed with the features this car offered! Thank you Ford Taurus for making our vacation a memorable one!!
Hidden Gem
Size, comfort, quietness, power. After driving competition this car was noticeably the best all round. It’s also nice to have two tons of steel protecting you as you cruise down the freeway and mountain roads!
2017 Ford Taurus
Some dealers are not going to be cooperative in providing quotes over the phone or in sending an email with a quote. Some will say something like, "Oh, we can look at prices after you come into the showroom and take a test drive". I wanted to know prices and features, BEFORE I go to showroom.

2017 Ford Taurus video

JOSH SADLIER: This is Edmund's editor Josh Sadlier and here's an expert rundown of the 2017 Ford Taurus. The Taurus used to be Ford's midsize sedan. Recent years it's become Ford's full size sedan. Three engines to choose from, the standard v-6 puts out 288 horsepower. It's pretty robust. There's also a two-liter turbo four cylinder engine, 240 horsepower, not that much more fuel efficient, so I would recommend driving both to see what your preference is. And finally, the SHO performance version has a twin turbo v-6, 365 horsepower. It's quick, but not that quick compared to other high performance large sedans. Around the back you're looking at one of the Taurus's most distinctive features, namely the enormous trunk. One of the largest you'll find in any car. Taurus also offers optional all wheel drive, has a pretty comfortable ride as you'd expect from a large sedan. In back there's enough passenger space by the numbers, but it might feel a little claustrophobic in there. The Taurus's high beltline, swoopy roofline, combine to make it feel slightly cramped, especially if you're on the taller side. Up front the dashboard design continues to be a leader in this segment in terms of style. It's a dual cowl overlay above the panels. Clean layout SYNC 3 infotainment system, is one of the better ones out there. Nice touch screen, easy to use, pretty responsive. The bottom line with the Taurus is that it's not the newest vehicle in this class, but still fully competitive. It's an old fashioned highway cruiser, lots of options to choose from, certainly worth considering. For more Edmond's expert rundowns, click the link to subscribe.
