Ford is getting ready to launch the 2016 Ford Taurus which is considered to the company’s the most popular model. This car arrived on the market in 1986, and it represents one of the oldest Ford models that are continuously sold and produced in North America. The vehicle arrived in many versions including the Mercury Sable, which represented the high-performance version of this model and the Lincoln Continental which was based on the Taurus as well. It appears that the 2016 Ford Taurus will arrive on the market completely redesigned and revamped. It appears that the company intends to change the vehicle significantly in order to make it more appealing and attractive. Let’s check what has been changed together.
2016 Ford Taurus Exterior
The 2016 Ford Taurus is considered to be a really stylish car and thanks to new changes and tweaks it will be even greater in terms of the exterior design. The most important change when it comes to its exterior is that the vehicle gets a new chassis. The main reason why they decided for a new chassis is that they wanted to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle and improve its performance in that way. So, the 2016 Ford Taurus will get a new, longer and wider chassis. Since the newcomer borrows the Fusion’s chassis, there is a great possibility that it will borrow some other design cues of this model which is not bad at all since the Fusion is considered to be one of the best looking and stylish vehicles on the market. The front fascia of the car will be decorated with a smaller hexagonal front grille. There will also be smaller rectangular headlights.
Interior of 2016 Taurus Ford
When you look at the 2016 Ford Taurus, you will notice that it is a really stylish model, but is it as stylish on the inside? Well, yes! The interior design of the newcomer is as good as the exterior. The cabin of the new model has been refreshed and improved, in terms of materials but also in terms of space. The company used high-quality materials including leather, premium plastics and aluminum and combined them in the best possible way to get a cabin that will leave you speechless at the very first sight. The vehicle will be equipped with latest technological features for the best driving feel ever. Some of the features that arrive with the newcomer are satellite navigation system, rearview camera, 3-zone automatic climate control, surround audio and much more. The front seats will be heated and cooled. There will also be a new Sony audio system which now arrives with 12 speakers, and 8 inch LCD touchscreen.
2016 Ford Taurus Engine
The 2016 Ford Taurus will be offered with several engine options. The base engine will be a 2.3-liter EcoBoost which enables you to get the maximum output of 305 horses and 300 pound feet of torque. This engine will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and power will be sent to the front wheels. A more powerful engine option will be a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 which will be available in the SHO version. There are some rumors that a 5.0-liter V8 will also be available, but the company hasn’t confirmed anything yet.
Release date and price of Taurus Ford 2016
The 2016 Ford Taurus will arrive on the market in the late 2015 or in early 2016. The based model will be priced at $28,000.
