Benefits of Driving a 2013 Ford Taurus Sedan

Clean, attractive packaging makes the 2013 Taurus one of the most appealing big sedans on the market. With a roomy interior, a smooth ride and striking interior styling, the Taurus now offers a luxury-car feel at a family sedan price. The Taurus is packed with high-tech features, offering many that aren't available on any other non-luxury-brand sedans. What's more, the high-performance Taurus SHO makes a solidly performing and stylish alternative to sport sedans from Germany--at a fraction of the price.

What's new for 2013?

Ford has given the Taurus a significant update for 2013. The most notable changes come in the form of a pair of new engines. A 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is now available that improves fuel economy significantly. The standard 3.5L V6 has also been given a redesign so it makes more power more efficiently. A new front fascia and other updated styling tweaks change up the exterior of the car, while a new torque vectoring system and electronic power steering round out the mechanical changes for the 2013 Taurus. The high-performance SHO is now offered with a Performance Package that offers 20-inch wheels, bigger brakes, a better cooling system and a shorter final drive ratio for increased acceleration.

Model Strengths

  • Stylish design inside and out
  • roomy, luxurious interior
  • range of high-tech options
  • strong performance from SHO model

Model Review

Most Taurus models are front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is optional. Standard power comes from Ford's 288-horsepower, 3.5L V6, coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission. A new 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder is optional that makes 240hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. With this engine the Taurus is capable of 31 mpg on the highway.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
