Engine and Mechanics

The 2014 Taurus can be had with a variety of different engines. The standard engine is Ford’s 3.5 liter V6 engine sending power to the front wheels. You can also have the 3.5 liter engine paired to an all-wheel drive system on SEL and Limited trims. If you are interested in saving money at the pump you can opt for 2.0 liter 4 cylinder ecoboost engine. This engine achieves 22 mpg city, 32 highway for 25 mpg combined. On the other side of the spectrum you can opt for the SHO model that features 3.5 liter 6-cylinder ecoboost motor found in the F-150, all mated to an all-wheel drive system. In this guise the motor produces 365 horsepower with 350 foot pounds of torque for those with a performance mindset.
