Which Taurus does Edmunds recommend?
The Taurus is reasonably priced, with trim levels and features more or less matching up with the Chevrolet Impala, and it costs thousands less than a Toyota Avalon or Kia Cadenza. However, the Taurus' full-size competitors generally have nicer interiors, don't feel as heavy and are roomier. The range-topping Taurus SHO is the only standout in the lineup, with a sport-tuned suspension and powerful engine that overcomes the Taurus' otherwise wallowy, sluggish driving experience. For the same money, however, enthusiasts can choose between two V8s in the Dodge Charger.
Edmunds' Expert Review
If Ford hadn't called it the SHO, this Taurus would have acquitted itself nicely with a good balance of power, braking and solid drivability. But as a SHO, and a sport sedan, it comes up a bit flat with uninvolved steering and handling and much too tall gearing.
If you happen to be the right height, the Taurus will impress you with a well-controlled ride and almost zero wind and road noise. But should you be above-average height, the wacky seating position will override most of its strengths.
It's difficult to put our fingers on what makes this interior so unsatisfying, but it might be because we don't have enough fingers. The inside of the Taurus is an automotive anomaly, from the downright weird front seats to the inexplicably high rear seats and the time warp control interfaces.
The Taurus SHO makes good use of its size, for the most part. There's certainly a big enough trunk for four golf bags, but the cabin is a mish-mash of oddly shaped bins and wasted space.
Ford's Sync 3 might well be the saving grace of a dated interior. Impressive connectivity and usability make it flexible enough for most any buyer. Be careful with option packages, as the Driver Assistance package cannot be ordered in conjunction with the Performance package.
