Good to see the name Taurus alive. And that screen.... I donīt know.... is too big. But is the trend. Big screen is the new "longer, lower, wider" of the 60īs...

Re: 2020 Chinese Taurus updates

Can't help but wonder how well that version would have sold here. But then again, I leased current model, because of the massive cash on the hood. Would not have done so without.

OMG!! That screen is beautiful...the Taurus console was designed for it, it fits perfectly.

It’s too bad Ford NA isn’t giving us the cool toys anymore.

Re: 2020 Chinese Taurus updates

Back in January, I purchased a 2018 Taurus, SEL, White Gold. The color wasn't available for 2019. The dealer found one 50 miles away, but that dealer wouldn't release it. Instead, the dealer found one 400 miles away in Memphis, TN. Love the car. I wanted to get one before being discontinued. Not into trucks or SUV's. Next up-Mustang. Its a shame Ford didn't build the China version Taurus here.

Mustang Ecoboost, GT, Bullitt, GT-350(R), GT-500...

...F-150 Raptor, F-SD Tremor, Edge and Explorer ST models...

...Aviator with 600+ lb/ft of torque...


...but a sedan with a big Kindle wedged into its console is a "cool toy"?

Put the caps back on the markers.

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

No, "cool Tesla screens" require driving a rolling-representation of a half-melted Ivory Soap bar and panel gaps dating from 1990s Hyundais.

I would include the 400hp MKZ and Bronco and mini Bronco too.

But do keep in mind the troll source you had responded to.

Eh...fair enough, but I don't consider the MKZ to be much of a toy. Its driving impressions have never precisely thrilled, even with the top motor.

As for the others, I can't have an opinion about vehicles that feel like they've been "around the corner" since about the time the last Bronco was axed...!!!

(Yes, I know that was 1996...and yes, the ramp-up feels that long)
