FORD SYNC

Let’s start with SYNC, now standard on every Ford Taurus. Unfamiliar with SYNC? Drivers can use simple voice commands to take control of more than 60 available apps that run on connected smartphones, while keeping hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. The list of compatible apps includes programs for entertainment, news, traffic, navigation and more.

This innovative full-size sedan is also available with MyFord Touch®, which replaces many traditional buttons, knobs and gauges with clear, colorful LCD screens and steering wheel-mounted five-way toggles. These screens can be personalized to display information relevant to each driver by using voice commands, keeping the driver’s eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

FUEL ECONOMY

Beyond the great technology, the Taurus is also know for its fuel economy. It’s the most fuel-efficient gasoline-powered full-sized sedan, with EPA estimated 32 MPG on the highway, when equipped with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine.

CHOOSE AN ENGINE

Under the hood, Ford offers many different engine choices for optimal fuel economy and power.

We’ve already talked about the 2.0-liter EcoBoost with the great fuel economy. Or choose the 3.5 liter V6 and 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 on the Taurus SHO. ike all Ford EcoBoost engines, this 3.5-liter produces peak torque across a broad plateau from 1,500 rpm to 5,250 rpm. Peak torque building quickly off idle ensures responsive acceleration. From the driver’s seat, the result is linear power delivery.

Combining direct injection and a pair of turbochargers, the EcoBoost V6 avoids lag by employing impellers that spool up quickly for swift response. This Taurus SHO combination of power, consistent torque delivery, all-wheel drive and up to EPA-estimated rating of 25 mpg on the highway is unmatched by competitors.
