Ford Taurus Vehicle Information
Few cars represent the full-size sedan class in the debonair way that the Ford Taurus does. Sleek and refined with all the appearance of a luxury vehicle, the new 2018 Taurus is guaranteed to turn heads on the roads of Orlando.
The exterior of the newest Taurus emanates confidence. The bold, precise lines of the car’s body are enhanced by the signature LED lighting, the standout grille, and the distinct shape of the front end. With nine exterior color options and a plethora of wheel designs to choose from, you can turn your Taurus into the perfect representation of you. The SHO, SEL, and Limited models offer the option of a bold rear spoiler with aerodynamic curves that not only enhance the car’s look, but assist with stability and efficiency as well. The interior is just as sophisticated as the exterior, giving you a blend of luxury and style. A six-way powered driver’s seat with manual lumbar support ensures that you will always be driving in complete comfort. The available option to have both a heated steering wheel and heated/cooled front seats means that regardless of the weather conditions outside, you will be just right. You can also choose to upgrade to leather-trimmed seats, adding some extra flair to an already impressive interior.
No new car is complete without the latest in technology, and the 2018 Taurus does not disappoint in that area. While the Taurus comes standard with 4.2-inch color LCD screens in the center stack and instrument cluster, you can opt to upgrade to an eight-inch color LCD Capacitive touchscreen in the center stack, which includes the Sync 3, 911 Assist, and AppLink features and also comes with two USB ports with smart-charging capability. Another available feature is the Voice-Activated Navigation System with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, which will let you find your way with ease no matter where in Orlando FL you are going.
The Taurus’ impressive array of technological features is not only limited to convenience and entertainment. This sedan also boasts the best in safety, including the AdvanceTrac electronic stability control with Curve Control system. This system can not only detect when you are entering a curve at a speed which is not recommended and then reduce your speed, it can also detect any wheel slippage and adjust the engine’s torque accordingly. The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross traffic alert will use radar in the rear panels of the vehicle to detect if there are any vehicles within your blind spot. If there are, you will be notified via a light in the driver’s sideview mirror. An additional available safety feature is the Lane-Keeping System, which will notify you through vibrations in the steering wheel if you happen to depart from your own lane unintentionally. This system will also apply torque to steering if required and alerts you so that you can guide your vehicle back into the proper lane.
On the topic of performance, the 2018 Taurus delivers in spades. With three different engines to choose from, you get to have your say in just how much power your car has. The 3.5 liter (L) Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) V6 gets you 288 horsepower (hp) and 254 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. The 2.0 L EcoBoost I-4 puts out 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, while the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 blasts out 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. All three engines boast similar Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ratings for fuel efficiency, with the 2.0 L EcoBoost I-4 coming out on top with 20 miles per gallon (mpg) city driving, 29 mpg driving on highways, and 23 mpg combined.
