The Taurus comes equipped with Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control to provide better handling on Schaumburg roads. Torque Vectoring Control uses the braking system to apply braking to the front inside wheel while accelerating through corners. The Curve Control feature helps to slow your vehicle when it senses you're going too fast.

 

This model also comes with power-assisted steering by an electric motor instead of using a hydraulic pump. This feature helps correct road irregularities and improves steering feel. It also features pull-drift compensation, which helps reduce pulling that occurs during crosswinds.
