2015 FORD TAURUS: The 2015 Taurus continues as Ford’s upscale full-size sedan with a host of new discreet additions. Updates, include power-adjustable pedals with memory, available lane-keeping systems with audible and visual alerts, electric power-assisted steering, Intelligent Access with push-button start and reverse sensing system. Buyers have their choice from three new available colors: Bronze Fire metallic tinted clearcoat, Magnetic and Caribou. The Taurus was the first car in Ford’s North American lineup to offer the advanced 2.0-liter EcoBoost powerplant. That four-cylinder engine combines a turbocharger with gasoline direct injection to deliver 240-horsepower and best-in-class highway fuel economy of at least 31 mpg. When the Taurus is fitted with the standard 3.5L V-6, it delivers increased performance from its 288-hp. Powering the Taurus SHO is a EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 – delivering 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. All powerplants come mated with engine specific six-speed SelectShift automatic transmissions. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive available only with the V-6. The ‘15 Taurus features a more muscular hood, larger wheels and tires that fill out the wheel-well openings, and raised rear quarter panels with larger LED taillights. Just as appealing is the sporty and inviting five-passenger cabin, with available eight-inch MyFord Touch screen, enhanced Sony audio system, paddle shifters and heated steering wheel. The optional active park assist allows Taurus to scan and calculate trajectory and properly position the vehicle to an appropriate parking space. For groceries or luggage, there is 20.1 cu. ft. of cargo space in the roomy trunk. Covered elsewhere is the Ford Taurus SHO, which offers unique, performance-inspired design, road manners to match - and even more differentiation within the Taurus lineup. Chicago Auto Show fact: The Ford Taurus models are manufactured at Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant, the company’s oldest continually-operated automobile manufacturing plant, which is less than 20 miles south of McCormick Place.
