Here are some of the highlights that make the Taurus stand out for 2014.

Trims and Options

The Taurus starts out with its distinguished profile outside and a long list of standard features. The base model gets 17 inch alloy wheels, automatic head lights, air conditioning, cruise control, blind spot mirrors, LED tail lights, and much more. Upgrade to SEL and you get automatic climate control, a leather wrapped steering wheel, the Ford Sync system, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and more.

If you venture farther up market, you'll see features like the MyFord Touch interface, a rearview camera, perforated leather heated and cooled seats, and more. Some stand alone options include a massage seat feature, a navigation system, and a Driver Assist package that includes lane-keeping assist, collision warning, and adaptive cruise control.



Powertrains and Efficiency

You start out with a muscular 3.5L V6 in the Taurus. It cranks out 288 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque that goes through a six-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. You can opt for all-wheel drive on the SEL and Limited trim levels. The front-wheel driver gets a respectable 29 mpg on the highway.

The first powertrain option available is a 2.0L four-cylinder engine rated at 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. While that engine produces slightly less horsepower and more torque it boosts fuel economy to 32 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined with front wheel drive.

Opt for the SHO model and you get a 3.5L turbocharged V6 that cranks out 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. That performance model will send you from 0 to 60 mph in only 5.8 seconds and will net 25 mpg on the highway by EPA estimates.
