  • Detroit-area car dealership gave new Ford Taurus to James Robertson
  • Robertson made headlines for walking 20 miles to and from work
  • Robertson's Taurus is a bright-red 2015 model with a $35,215 sticker price

The Detroit-area man who made headlines last week for walking more than 20 miles to work now has a new car. James Robertson received a 2015 Ford Taurus from Suburban Ford of Sterling Heights, Michigan, who donated the car to Robertson after hearing his story.

Robertson was surprised with the car last week thanks to Suburban Ford and Blake Pollock, the banker who befriended Robertson on his commute and helped bring his story to light. Robertson entered the Ford dealership to get some brochures on the Taurus, only to find the $35,215 car in the showroom with a huge bow on the hood.

"It's like me: simple on the outside, strong on the inside," Robertson told the Detroit Free Press, referring to the Taurus.

We happen to think that Robertson's new car is an excellent one, as the sedan offers a lot of luxury gadgets, a smooth ride and available all-wheel drive, which is perfect for Detroit winters. In fact, we like the Taurus so much that we even included it in a recent list of top picks for James Robertson's crowd-sourced car.

In addition to the Taurus, Robertson received a huge financial windfall, $350,000 before taxes, thanks to donations that poured in through the crowd-sourcing site GoFundMe. His newfound wealth will help him pay for car insurance, fuel, medical needs and other crucial items in the future.

What it means to you: We like the 2015 Ford Taurus for its high-tech gadgets, its roomy interior and its handsome lines. Undoubtedly, so does James Robertson.
