Longtime Ford owners will remember the Taurus as a reliable, somewhat unassuming sedan. Since its discontinuation and subsequent revival, the Taurus’ appearance and engineering have undergone a complete overhaul. The new 2015 Taurus stays true to its roots as a dependable family car, while its sophisticated, modern design elevate it into the realm of luxury. Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble, TX has plenty of new Taurus models in stock, and motorists will have no trouble finding the right combination of trim, engine, and features to suit their exact needs.
The 2015 Taurus is available in four distinct trims: SE, SEL, Limited, and SHO. The SE, SEL, and Limited models come equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine that supplies 288 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 23 combined miles per gallon. Alternatively, the 2.0L Ford EcoBoost engine is available on these same trims and gives the Taurus the best fuel efficiency in its class. With 22 city/32 highway MPG and 240 horsepower, this EcoBoost provides a great balance between efficiency and power. Whether you’re negotiating crowded Houston streets or cruising the back roads around Humble and Crosby, a new Taurus offers an exhilarating driving experience and fuel economy unmatched by other full-size sedans.
If it’s power you’re focused on, the Ford Taurus SHO has plenty to spare. The SHO comes standard with a twin-turbocharged, direct-injection 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that is capable of 365 horsepower and gets an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon. This all-wheel-drive platform is somewhat pricier than the other trims, but the powerful and refined feel of theSHO is well worth the price, and it is noticeably less expensive than most comparableluxury sedans. The leather-rich interior, sport-tuned suspension, advanced traction control, and SYNC with MyFord Touch are just a few factors that make the Taurus SHO an undeniably excellent vehicle to own or lease.
Along with the numerous new and familiar creature comforts that are available, Ford has introduced a wide variety of active safety features into the Taurus line for the 2015 model year. The adaptive cruise control and collision warning system monitors the speed of traffic in front of your vehicle and modifies the set speed accordingly, and the available Blind Spot Information System keeps you aware of what’s happening around you at all times.
Among full-size sedans, the new Taurus sets the standard of performance, fuel economy, and luxury, and it can be yours starting at $27,055 MSRP. To learn more, visit Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble and test drive a new 2015 Ford Taurus today.
