2012 Ford Taurus
2012 Ford Taurus
The Taurus is one of those cars that is commonly seen on U.S. roads but that you hardly ever notice. It suffers from anonymous styling and middling performance, and yet its sales numbers are pretty good. The redesigned Taurus that went on sale two years ago took over for the even more uninspiring Five Hundred, which had itself replaced the previous Taurus. Confused yet? Well, suffice it to say that the Taurus nameplate isn't likely to disappear again any time in the near future. Compared with the old Five Hundred, the Taurus's exterior sports a higher beltline, a lower roofline, and a more aggressive grille and headlights. The interior has a nicely designed center stack and materials that display a high level of fit and finish. The Taurus is a technological showcase for Ford, with available features such as a collision warning system, automatic high-beams, voice-activated navigation, multicountour seats with ActivMotion, a rearview camera, and a blind-spot warning system, among others. Under the hood is the same 263-hp V-6 as last year's. For a dose of driving excitement, the SHO returned to the Taurus lineup in 2010 in all-wheel-drive form sporting Ford's EcoBoost V-6 -- a twin-turbocharged direct-injection unit that produces 365 hp. There is an optional performance package for the SHO that includes twenty-inch wheels, performance tires and brake pads, and specially calibrated steering.
Ford Police Interceptor Vehicles Front Side View
No Ford police vehicle has ever been as efficient as the upcoming Police Interceptor, the automaker says. With a 288-hp 3.5-liter V-6 engine, the Taurus-based sedan is set to get an EPA rating of 18/26 mpg city/highway.

The Ford Crown Victoria has long been a favorite among law-enforcement agencies, and the city of Chicago plans to continue using Ford police vehicles. City mayor Rahm Emanuel today announced that Chicago will buy 500 new Ford Police Interceptor vehicles -- a fitting move, as the cop cars are built just south of the Windy City at Ford's Chicago Assembly Plant. Though Chicago has committed to ordering 500 police cars from Ford, the city hasn't yet determined what proportion of those will be sedan versus Utility models. The Police Interceptor sedan is based on the Ford Taurus, while the Police Interceptor Utility is based on the Explorer crossover. Both are upgraded with features like stab-resistant seats, column shifters to make more space for gear in the center console, unique hinges to allow the rear doors to open wider, larger brakes, an enlarged engine radiator, and a heavy-duty alternator. A Ford spokesman said that over 1200 law-enforcement agencies nationwide have ordered the new Police Interceptor models so far. He noted that the Ford Crown Victoria was America's dominant police car for over 15 years, until the model was phased out last year. The Ford Police Interceptor sedan is powered either by a 3.5-liter V-6 with 280 hp, or Ford's EcoBoost twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 with 365 hp. In recent testing, the Michigan State Police found the EcoBoost-powered sedan could charge to 60 mph (in pursuit of criminals, of course) in as little as 5.92 seconds. The Police Interceptor Utility receives a 3.5-liter V-6 engine rated for 300 hp, which the Michigan State Police found could complete the 0-to-60-mph dash in 8.01 seconds. Both of Ford's new police cars went into production at the Chicago plant last month, adding over 230 jobs at the plant that already employs 2646 people. The Chicago Assembly Plant also builds civilian versions of the Ford Taurus and Explorer, as well as the Lincoln MKS. Source: Ford
2013 Ford Escape Front Three Quarter1
Ford has been hard at work proliferating various forms of its turbocharged EcoBoost engines across its lineup. Now, after moving 127,883 of them last year and deciding to triple production efforts of EcoBoost engines, the automaker will have 11 different models offering the turbo mills across its Ford and Lincoln brands.
No, the 2010 Specialty Equipment Market Association show isn't a police equipment trade show, but that isn't stopping Ford from bringing its latest cop car to the annual event. You're looking at Ford's Police Interceptor Stealth concept, but we're reticent to call it a "concept" -- apart from a few visual modifications, the Stealth is little more than a stock Taurus-based 2012 Police Interceptor.
