The Powerful Performance Features of the Ford Taurus

Our experts at Jim Vreeland Ford in Buellton, CA recommend the Ford Taurus to consumers who are in the market for a full-size sedan. The Taurus is a popular sedan because it's reliable and well-rounded. Let's have a look at its notable performance features.

The Taurus offers impressive power and efficiency with its standard 3.5L Ti-VCT engine. This engine produces 288 horsepower and is mated with a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. For even more power under the hood, you can choose the SHO trim that features a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine with turbocharging and direct injection, which delivers 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control are standard with the Ford Taurus. Torque Vectoring Control works with the braking system to give you more grip when you're accelerating around corners. Curve Control can slow the Taurus when it detects that you are approaching a curve too quickly so that you maintain control.
