Ford Taurus is one of the most attractive Americans!
Hello to all the fans and companions of IR-LuxeCars website, with another interesting article, we want to introduce one of the attractive American cars to you!
This time, the IR-LuxeCars test and review team has gone to Ford’s fascinating monster, the Taurus. A very stylish and beautiful car with a powerful and noisy engine!
Ford Taurus Car History
The Taurus was manufactured by the Ford plant in the United States from 1986 to 2019. Production was halted by Ford because of economic constraints and lack of adequate financial conditions, as the giant automaker wanted to focus on trucks and trucks. From this car, 6 generations came to the market before the production stopped. There was even an interruption in the construction process between 2006 and 2007. This car became popular because it had a very impressive design, and it is interesting to know that it was added to the US police fleet in 2013.
Introducing the Taurus
The Ford Taurus that we have is from the sixth or last generation of this car. The sixth generation has been on display at the Detroit Auto Show since 2010 and at the same time attracted a lot of attention. Of course, the Taurus we are reviewing is actually a facelifted version in 2013. The front and rear views as well as the headlights were updated and slightly improved in terms of technology and amenities.
Technical specifications of Ford Taurus
The Taurus is a 3.5-liter 6-cylinder that can produce 288 horsepower and 344 Nm of torque and transmit it to the wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The top speed of this car is limited to 200 km / h and it takes 7.6 seconds to reach 100 km / h from standstill. The fuel consumption of the American high-powered monster is between 10 and 11.4 liters per 100 kilometers.

Ford Taurus driving experience
It all starts with a nice design, the front end is very harmonious, the windshield looks like a 2014 Santa Fe, but what sets it apart is the blue Ford logo in the middle. In the side view, nothing special caught our eye except a very harmonious design, but the rear view is completely different from the rest of the views. A metal strip in the middle of the trunk decorated with the blue Ford logo is stretched in the middle to the sides of the trunk. It is as if the car’s headlight has been cut in half and penetrated into it. They try to get in the car.
As soon as you go to the car, you say to yourself, a car of this size must have a very large interior space, but contrary to expectations, I must say that you do not expect Taurus to deceive you at all. Anyway, it’s different from what you think, but Taurus is under investigation by the IR Luxury Karz team for a beautiful, harmonious, stylish and eye-catching cabin. In one corner of the dashboard, the word Taurus is still engraved in a beautiful font. The lack of a multi-inch screen may be to your liking, but the center console is beautifully designed and all the keys are in place. The car was supposed to be a competitor to the Dodge Charger, but it seems that this car has fewer options than its longtime rival. Looking ahead, an analog odometer seems to be embedded in the heart of the dashboard. On both sides of this kilometer screen are blue analog indicators and in the middle of it are the car technical information indicators.
Now we come to the part where we start with the Taurus. We start, the sound of the American 3.5-liter 6-cylinder engine can be heard. put the drive and now we want to test the acceleration of the monster! We press the accelerator pedal with all our might, what you expect is a monstrous roar, but what you do not expect is the relatively disappointing performance of the Taurus. The heavy weight of this car does not allow the width of its powerful engine. Weighing about 1900 kg which is a really big number. The speed continues to improve a bit, but what is annoying for the driver is the strict control of this car on a winding road because its weight is still the first obstacle. With these interpretations, driving is very enjoyable, the quality of interior materials and safety of 5 stars will give you a pleasant feeling. As soon as you can explore the road with the Ford Taurus with your family, it is very valuable, because although the Ford Taurus has a 3.5-liter 6-cylinder engine, its fuel consumption is quite good. The cabin is simple, but while driving everything It is available to the driver and sometimes the driver does not have to bother to activate his option, for example. With these interpretations, we can say that the Ford Taurus is a family sports car, attractive and handsome, but heavy and fat and has high safety. The sound of its powerful engine is pleasing to the ear, but it is very simple and has few options.
Thanks to the esteemed owner of the car who provided this opportunity to the testing team of IR-LuxeCars.
