Looking for a large sedan with top-notch safety scores? The 2017 Ford Taurus might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.
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.
