2014 Ford Taurus
The 2014 Ford Taurus presents full-size sedan shoppers with a roomy and stylish offering that comes in a variety of different trim levels.

A fuel-efficient EcoBoost four-cylinder unit that displaces 2.0-liters is available as an option, and it generates 240 turbocharged horses and 270 lb-ft of torque while returning 22-mpg in city driving and 32-mpg on the highway. The Taurus SHO benefits from a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 that produces 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Each of these engines is shifted via a six-speed automatic transmission, and while all-wheel drive is standard with the Taurus SHO, it's optional with the standard V-6.
