2014 Ford Taurus
2014 Ford Taurus

New For 2014

The 2014 Ford Taurus offers a new lane-keeping system that is packaged with the active park assist feature. There are two new colors, sunset metallic and dark side metallic.

Vehicle Summary

The Ford Taurus made its debut in 1985 and was an immediate success for the company. In fact, the Taurus was the best-selling car in America in 1989-90 and 1992-96. It also twice received an Automobile Magazine All-Star award, in 1991 (Taurus SHO) and 1996. With the new millennium, however, Taurus sales steadily declined, to the point that Ford decided to kill the Taurus nameplate. The Taurus’s replacement, the Five Hundred, debuted at the 2004 Detroit auto show. Ford reversed itself a few years later with the 2008 model, which once again wore the Taurus nameplate. Once a midsize sedan, the 2014 Ford Taurus is now a full-size model, and the Fusion has replaced it as Ford's more affordable midsize offering. The current version of the Taurus debuted for 2011 and was heavily refreshed in 2013, so there are no major changes this year.

Overview

The 2014 Ford Taurus is a big, heavy, full-size sedan that offers plenty of interior and cargo space. The ample back seat and deep trunk are two reasons that a buyer might choose the Taurus instead of the less expensive, more fuel-efficient Ford Fusion. The Taurus was refreshed for the 2013 model year, adding skinny headlights, a wider front grille, LED taillights, and various other sheetmetal changes. New technologies included electric power steering; a self-park function; Curve Control, which applies the brakes when the car enters a corner too fast; and Torque Vectoring Control, which applies the front brakes to counter wheelspin. Larger brakes addressed one of our biggest complaints about the pre-2013 Taurus, and soft-touch materials make the cabin look and feel more upmarket. MyFord Touch, a backup camera, a blind-spot warning system, push-button start, and adaptive cruise control are among the options. For the 2014 Ford Taurus, a new lane-keeping system is available. It sends a vibration through the steering wheel to warn the driver when the car threatens to veer out of the current lane, and it can steer the car back on course if the driver doesn't heed the warning.

Despite all these tweaks, the 2014 Ford Taurus is only average to drive. Like many of its rivals in the full-size sedan class, it is aimed more at comfort and style than driving fun. The standard 288-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 is smooth and responsive and returns up to 19/29 mpg (city/highway) with front-wheel drive or 18/26 mpg with all-wheel drive. Buyers can spend more for a 240-hp, 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine that manages 22/32 mpg, which is impressive full-size sedan. That engine can't be had with all-wheel drive, however.

Enthusiasts can spring for the 2014 Ford Taurus SHO and its 365 hp, 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 engine. All-wheel drive is standard on the 2014 Ford Taurus SHO, which also comes with with nineteen-inch wheels, unique body styling, and a stiffer suspension. The 2014 Ford Taurus SHO is very quick and performs very well overall, but it's not as rewarding to drive as a true sport sedan. A new performance package that was introduced for 2013 includes twenty-inch wheels with high-performance tires, more aggressive brake pads, and special suspension tuning.

You'll like:

  • Roomy interior and trunk
  • All-wheel drive available
  • Powerful SHO model

You won't like:

  • Feels big and heavy to drive
  • Fuel-sipping engine costs extra
  • High beltline reduces outward visibility

2014 Ford Police Interceptor Has Officers' Backs (w/Video)
The perception and experience among many of us of law enforcement officers are nanny killjoys writing us up for rolling through stop signs or driving 10 mph over the limit. For most of us, it's a fair trade quid pro quo for having freedom of motorized mobility. But traffic tickets are but one aspect of police officers' jobs, which can also include hazardous situations in which their personal safety is under potential threat. Working to make officers' jobs a little safer, Ford is introducing a new rear surveillance feature in the 2014 model Police Interceptor Sedan and Utility models.
