SPY PICS: Ford Taurus/Lincoln MKS? testing in Geelong



Ford Australia is reported to be carrying out local testing of products for international markets, including next-generation Lincolns. And these exclusive spy shots provide supporting evidence.

According to motoring.com.au reader, 'Roo', the photos taken on his smartphone on Friday show two of three heavily disguised large sedans travelling in convoy and accompanied by an FPV F6X (Territory Turbo) shepherding them and fending off the occasional curious bystander.

First spotted at Highton, the cars appeared to be driving a test loop that concluded in the You Yangs area, the location of Ford Australia's proving grounds. The three cars looked larger than the current Mondeo and all three were left-hand drive and loaded to the gills with test equipment.

Based off the second pic I thought it was the MKS but the tailights don't appear to be full-width. These proptypes appear to be all most production ready.

yeah, it is the Taurus, I don´t know why they confuse it with the S, so far the S is a mistery!

The Taurus is very close. Maybe by LAIAS or 2015 NAIAS we will see the car , maybe in concept form... but i suspect the final production version will be ready for detroit...

Man, i relly like the different personalities of the current Taurus and Fusion. This new prototype makes the Taurus looks like a Fusion lngthened Fusion ... I hope that what is still under the camo will make them very different.

That big grill, slightly more formal c-pillar/roofline and more upright windshield gives me the impression the upcoming Taurus will look like a full-size version of the Chinese Escort.
