2008 Ford Taurus Review

A reputation for being the best. Today’s Taurus is better than ever. Safe spacious smart and so versatile Taurus is Americas best new car for families on the go. Taurus provides unmatched class-leading protection. Its crash safety rates the full 5 Stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Equipped with optional electronic stability control Taurus also is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s “Top Safety Pick.” Take hold of the leather-wrapped wheel of Taurus and take charge. An experience enhanced by class-exclusive Command Seating which sits you comfortably upright and tall provides SUV-like panoramic visibility and allows for effortless entry and exit. Bright accents abound from the door handles and instrument panel gauges to the console controls and shifter. The look is rich with a feeling of confidence: audio buttons on the steering wheel and available power-adjustable pedals extend your command. Welcome to the most sizable family-friendly interior in the class: a full 129 cubic feet to be exact. Within this wealth of room guests can bask in class-best rear passenger volume. On-demand acceleration gives you the strength to make things happen. The die-cast aluminum-block engine produces a robust 263 horsepower and 249 pound feet of torque; employing intake variable cam timing for optimal horsepower per liter. The all-new 2008 Ford Taurus America’s ideal family car.
