New 2011 Ford Taurus

Last year, the Ford Taurus sedan full size transformation, creating an attractive, can rival in the class, which is located at midsize sedan and Honda Accord V-6, and Buck Lucerne. New high-performance Taurus SHO, compressor powered by a V-6, also joined the field. Only the parties in the new versus the old Taurus? The interior is less common in this process.

Hoewel the 2011 is hardly noemen spannend Ford Taurus, it is a big improvement over the pre-2010 version. All around, the Ford Taurus has an interesting new form of last year, dropping by the old VW Passat, as the slogan for a higher profile, suggesting a smaller Ford Fusion. Inside, the 2011 Taurus more specific, defined areas for the driver and front passenger are characterized by a low, wide center console that solid separates driver and passenger side (and a lot takes place). And there are plenty of faux wood and chrome. Sports Taurus SHO gets special badging, glossy black dashboard trim and other metal stresses inside and out, and trunklid spoiler, twin chrome exhaust tips and cooler rack.

Taurus SHO uses much more energy, but it is slightly smaller than before, the transformation of the Taurus SHO sedan, partly because they are giving power to the SHO on the road with such calmness and lack of initiatives to promote stress .

At the same time, you will not forget that Taurus is the weight of the car, it is far from agile.

The front seats are a bit limited field rushes great console, but has a great potential for long drivers. The biggest problem with the rear passengers coming from universities, as always, opened the doors wide for your feet, but the roofline is low, making access and egress a little harder than it should. With a sunroof installed, and six-footers in the back of his head was disappointing, with an ongoing relationship between her and the stars.
