2016 Ford Taurus Buyer's Guide
The 2016 Ford Taurus is a full size sedan that seats five passengers. It’s the brand’s flagship sedan, even though it struggles at times to differentiate itself from other models in its own lineup. The Taurus sits above Ford’s Fusion sedan in the brand’s hierarchy, although the Fusion provides many of the same benefits at a lower price. However, the Taurus is still an important model for Ford, and the Taurus SHO performance model, especially, showcases the brand’s capabilities. This generation of the Ford Taurus has been on the market since the 2010 model year, with only minor updates since its refresh in 2013. Ford’s SYNC infotainment system recently received a significant update, marking the only major change in the Taurus for this model year.

Why buy the 2016 Ford Taurus?
The 2016 Ford Taurus provides comfortable and generous accommodations and plenty of style. It’s a safe choice for a full size sedan, offering buyers the choice between efficiency, performance, or a balance between the two. Though the Taurus is not marketed as a luxury car, it provides plenty of features and equipment to help it hold its own against more expensive sedans, and the cabin features high quality finishes that make it feel more upscale than it actually is. Buyers who are interested in a high performance vehicle in a less flashy package should look at the Taurus SHO, which provides good horsepower with plenty of boost, standard all-wheel drive, and satisfying driving dynamics that make the car feel calm and composed even under pressure.
