At Northway Ford Brantford in Brant County (Between Hamilton & Cambridge)

2015 Ford Taurus design
The design of the 2015 Ford Taurus is modern, attractive, practical and predictable. It's a solid sedan shape with large overhangs, the now signature Ford front grille, a large hood, curved roof and short trunk. The fluted side panels add a little interest and a good set of alloy wheels completes the look.
LED lighting, a raked windshield, aero-looking side mirrors and a small boot spoiler add a little more design flair.
Inside, the practicality continues. The cabin is spacious enough for four adults and cargo in back. Ford have spent a lot of money improving materials and sound insulation, so the inside of a Taurus is now quieter and more comfortable than ever. The driving position is good, with a lot of technology to hand and a commanding view of the road.
Engine and transmission
The 2015 Ford Taurus has two engine options, the standard 3.5 V6 or a four cylinder. The 3.5-litre V6 motor is good for 288 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-litre turbocharged four cylinder is good for 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Both engines use a six-speed automatic transmission.
There is also a performance Taurus called the SHO which uses a turbocharged version of the V6 engine to deliver 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
