About Ford Taurus
Despite its low score, the 2014 Ford Taurus is a good affordable large sedan. The Taurus has a comfortable ride, quick acceleration, and plenty of storage room, as well as good reliability and low ownership expenses.
The 2014 Ford Taurus comes with three distinct powertrain options, so most buyers should be satisfied. The base V6 engine produces 288 horsepower, but SEL and Limited variants include a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower. The Taurus SHO variant has a twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 365 horsepower. The base engine is powerful and refined, while the four-cylinder engine offers the highest fuel economy in the lineup (22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway). Despite being the most powerful choice in the lineup, the Taurus SHO falls short of rivals such as the V8-powered Dodge Charger. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all versions. The standard engine achieves 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, respectively.
The 2014 Ford Taurus’ inside is mostly lovely, although there are a few dark, harsh plastics that make it less appealing than some competitors’. The Taurus seats five people on basic cloth upholstery and has plenty of room in the cabin for both the driver and the passengers. It also possesses one of the class’s largest trunks, at 20.1 cubic feet. However, other competitors, such as the Chevrolet Impala, have larger rear legroom. The Taurus’ visibility is hampered by large roof pillars on either side. The MyFord Touch infotainment system is tough to use and responds slowly to inputs. The second-row seats have three sets of LATCH car-seat connectors.
