2014 Ford Taurus
Like its namesake, the 2014 Ford Taurus is powerful and mighty to behold. The Interior and Exterior is stylish.
The Ins and Outs
Available in SE, SEL, Limited and SHO trim models, the Taurus packs a punch to the eyes with its chiseled good looks from any angle you gaze at it from. The sharp, clean lines accentuate the bold hood design and draw your eye to the attractive grill.
Its wide stance helps you hug the road while the refined suspension delivers stable, confident handling while cornering.
While everyone is focused on you, the Taurus' projector-beam halogen headlamps provide focused illumination for you on the road. And its LED tail lamps make sure people behind you know that you're braking. All you have to hope for is that they're not too mesmerized by the car to forget to brake, too.
If you want to get sporty with your Taurus, available spoilers will help you fulfil that goal. Finish off the look with an available dual exhaust system with chrome tips or go all in and get the SHO model, which has a true dual exhaust system.
If you do go for the high-performance Taurus SHO, you can sex it up with available leather-trimmed seats in Charcoal Black with Mayan Grey Miko suede inserts or Charcoal Black with an embroidered SHO logo on the front seats. This year's model features extended thigh support cushions and an upgraded bolster contour for added comfort. The soy-based seat cushions, seat backs and the 4-way adjustable headrests are supportive, comfortable and environmentally friendly.
Your choice of wheels runs the gamut. You have your choice of 20" machined aluminum wheels with black painted pockets (standard on SHO) and 20" polished aluminum wheels (optional on Limited.) Limited comes standard with 19" premium painted aluminum wheels. Or 18" painted aluminum wheels come standard on SEL, while 17" painted aluminum are standard on SE. Also available for SEL, Limited and SHO: 19" painted aluminum wheels.
The interior is just as attractive as the exterior, with its sweeping centre console, attention to craftsmanship and available ambient lighting. Comfort is a top priority with climate-controlled seats in the front and rear, along with a heated steering wheel. And, best of all, the multi-contour driver and front-passenger seats, optional in Taurus Limited and SHO models, feature 6-way lumbar and subtle rolling-pattern massage while the bottom cushion features Active Motion, which provides a therapeutic lower back and upper leg massage. Those long drives just got a whole lot better.

The 2014 Ford Taurus comes with a 6-speed electronically controlled SelectShift automatic overdrive transmission that is standard on SE, SEL & Limited models and a 6-speed electronically controlled SelectShift automatic overdrive transmission with paddle activation for the SHO only.
Standard in all models of the 2014 Ford Taurus is Curve Control, which helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle when taking a curve too quickly by employing throttle reduction and 4-wheel braking intervention.
Also helping you maintain your grip on the road is the Torque Vectoring Control system, which transfers torque to the wheels that have the most grip while cornering. It uses braking to adjust the speed between the front wheels while you're accelerating through a corner, forcing the front end to hug the inside of the curve and provide a better grip.
In the event of a crash, you'll be safe with the standard Safety Canopy System, which deploys airbags on virtually all sides of you. The tire pressure monitoring system is standard on all models while a rear view camera is optional.
The Ford Taurus comes with a Bumper to Bumper warranty of 3 years or 60,000 km; a Powertrain warranty of 5 years or 100,000 km; a Safety Restraint System warranty of 5 years or 100,000 km; a Corrosion (Perforation only) warranty of 5 years or Unlimited km and a Roadside Assistance Program of 5 years or 100,000 km.
The 2010 Taurus SHO was named Car of the Year by Esquire magazine.
The Ford Taurus main competitors are the Honda Accord, the Mazda6 and the Chevrolet Impala.
If you're looking for a car that is bound to turn some heads, the 2014 Ford Taurus may just be calling your name.
