“The new Ford Taurus is another example of the best Ford has to offer globally, designed and developed with the Chinese market in mind,” said Marin Burela, president, Changan Ford Automobile Co. “More than just a premium business sedan, it’s an elegant statement of what is possible under the One Ford plan.”
This is what I mean that we have to pay attention to what Ford actually says, and not what others 'hear'. Ford is not saying the New Taurus is ONLY for China, but is stating that the Taurus is part of the One Ford Plan, of products Ford has to offer globally.
Just thinking about this logically, with China being a 'growing' large car market, that means China will make selling the same New Taurus 'body' in the US even more viable/profitable.
