Ford unveiled the Taurus nomenclature for the first time in 1985 and kept the model into production for almost two decades, making the sedan the second oldest nameplate it offered on the North American market. Because of dwindling sales, Ford pulled the Taurus from its retail showrooms in the 2007 model year, leaving it just as a fleet vehicle. In the 2008 model year, the Taurus returned as the re-badged and restyled Ford Five Hundred.
However, Ford understood that bringing back the name won’t help much if its neglected the model as much as it did just before its initial demise. Having learned from its mistakes, Ford unveiled the sixth-generation Taurus with an all-new look that was revolutionary for the era.
This new generation brought a completely new look, completely transforming the face of the Taurus and, of course, customers’ opinions about it. In 2013 Taurus received a facelift that made it even more attractive and kept it looking relatively fresh.
For the 2014 model year, Taurus is offered in three trim levels — SE, SEL and Limited — with prices starting from $27,495.
