Ford Taurus delivers more of what buyers of large sedans really want – technology, design refinement, craftsmanship and great driving dynamics. New for 2017 is premium sound from Sony® with Clear Phase® and Live Acoustics™ technology – standard for Taurus Limited and Taurus SHO.

The 2017 Taurus features plenty of driver-assist technology including available lane-keeping warning and lane-keeping aid; Curve Control, which automatically slows the car if it enters a curve too fast; torque vectoring control; and adaptive cruise control.

Taurus features a standard 3.5-liter V6 and available 2.0-liter EcoBoost® I-4 engine. Taurus SHO comes standard with 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. All models use a six-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift®. Paddle shifters come standard with Taurus SHO. All-wheel drive is standard for Taurus SHO, and available on SEL and Limited series trim levels.

For 2017, Taurus includes SYNC® enhanced voice recognition and entertainment system with available SYNC 3 featuring an LCD touch screen with swiping and pinch-to-zoom capabilities, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, AppLink™ and 911 Assist®.
