Taurus Trims & Features

There's a lot to like about the Taurus' cabin, from its attractive styling and tech-savvy design to its spacious backseat and excellent trunk space. The sedan is sold in four grades--SE, SEL, Limited and SHO--each offering an assortment of comforts and conveniences.

Starting on the Taurus SE, the car comes standard with a keyless-access keypad, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, six-way power-adjustable front seats, voice controls, two USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity. Moving up to the SEL trim adds remote start, a leather-wrapped wheel and shift knob, heated mirrors and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Taurus SEL models are also available with an optional package that adds power-adjustable pedals, keyless entry, an 8-inch touchscreen and Sync 3 infotainment.

For buyers seeking all the bells and whistles, 2017 Ford Taurus reviews recommend splurging for the Limited trim. Perforated leather seating, ambient interior lighting, heated/ventilated front seats, heated second row seats and a premium Sony audio system are just a few of the amenities this trim has to offer.

Three Powerful Engine Options

The 2017 Taurus is offered with a trio of engine options to satisfy every buyer's needs. The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine makes 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque, which is delivered to the front wheels by a six speed automatic. All-wheel drive is also available for those who prefer it.

If cutting down on fuel costs is a priority, opting for a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder may be your best bet. Generating a comparable 240 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque, this option offers a similar output as the standard V6 with boosted fuel economy.

Exclusive on the sporty SHO trim is a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that achieves V8-like power, according to 2017 Ford Taurus reviews. This powerplant pumps out a hair-raising 365 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, and all-wheel drive is standard. Standard, the Taurus SHO also comes with 20-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, shift paddles and a sport-tuned suspension.

Standard & Available Safety

In addition to receiving top marks in safety tests, the 2017 Ford Taurus in Colma comes outfitted with integrated blind spot mirrors, smartphone-synced 911 Assist, Ford MyKey, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors (excludes SE). The top-tier Limited and SHO trims add the latest driver-assist features, including forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning/intervention and automatic parallel parking.
