Despite carrying a starting MSRP of well under $30,000, the 2016 Ford Taurus SE is packed full of luxury amenities, such as a rearview camera, Bluetooth capabilities, and a six-speaker sound system with CD player, auxiliary jack, and two USB ports. While other full-size sedans offer V6 engines as available upgrades, the 2016 Taurus comes standard with a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 motor that’s good for 288 horsepower and 254 lb-ft or torque.
Comfortable and Tech-Savvy Interior Cabin
As far as cargo room, the Ford Taurus offers 20.1 cubic feet of storage space in its trunk. This sedan also provides comfortable seating for up to five passengers, who are sure to enjoy the standard air conditioning and cloth upholstery inside the cabin. The Taurus’ seats even offer heating, cooling, and massage capabilities as optional features. In addition, a more responsive and easier-to-use Sync infotainment system replaces the outgoing MyFord Touch technology. You’ll definitely appreciate the improvements.
Greater Performance from the SHO Model
If you thought the Mustang was the only sporty car in Ford’s lineup, think again. The top-level Taurus SHO comes with a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine rated at 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft or torque. The SHO trim is also standard with all-wheel drive and a sport-tuned suspension. All of these performance upgrades work together to allow the Taurus SHO to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than six seconds. Other notable features on the SHO model include unique 20-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, and xenon headlights.
