The Taurus, not to be confused with the Ford Taunus, first made its debut all the way back in 1985. The model has since seen eight generations to hit the North American market.

In 2004, the model was briefly discontinued in its fourth generation due to poor sales. This was overturned under new leadership in Ford, resulting in the model’s revival in 2008.

Despite the model still being in production, Ford announced that the model would be discontinued for the US in 2018.

However, two further generations were released for the Chinese market. This meant that the models diverged with the release of the seventh generation in 2016. The latest of these versions was unveiled in 2023

This version will mainly be sold in the Middle East and is actually a rebadged version of the Ford Mondeo.

Like most of the recently retired models from Ford, its discontinuation was the result of the increased popularity of crossover SUVs and the company’s desire to focus more on electric vehicles in the near future.

Similar to a number of other mid-size and large family cars, it has featured a good variety of layouts. These are the fairly reliable 4-door sedan, 5-door liftback, and 5-door estate, which was called the Taurus X.

Competition in the class typically came from the Chevrolet Impala, Buick Lacrosse, Dodge Charger, and Toyota Avalon.

Trim levels for the Taurus consist of SE, SEL, SHO, and the premium Limited.

Petrol engine options have typically ranged between a 1.5 L inline-4 through to a 2.7 L V6. The latest versions of the Taurus, like many modern releases, do not feature a diesel option due to declining popularity.

These engines have usually been mated with either a 6-speed or an 8-speed automatic transmission.
