2005 Ford Taurus

Low Driver Side Front View

What's Hot
Roomy interior
Low transaction cost
Commodious trunk
What's Not
Oh-so-'90s styling
Trails competitors' refinement, power
Lame duck to the better {{{Five Hundred}}}

What's New
Nothing of significance. With 2006 scheduled to be the Taurus's last model year, Ford unsurprisingly sees no point in making a lot of changes now.

Key Options
Side airbags and anti-lock brakes are essential safety items. The Duratec V-6 (available on the SEL only) is considerably more powerful than the base engine and an appealing upgrade. Leather seats and a moonroof are optional on both models, while an 80-watt Mach stereo and automatic climate control are optional only on the SEL.

Others to Consider
Chevrolet Impala, Ford Five Hundred, Ford Fusion
