2016 Ford Taurus
Taurus is famous sedan from Ford family. How much it was popular, says that company is already preparing seventh generation of the car, which will be launched as 2016 Ford Taurus. Not many cars reach few redesigns, but Taurus is offered for many years, and most sales record in its native country, US. To be more competitive, Ford decided to put new Taurus on big diet, which will save a lot of pounds, and improve significantly car’s MPG rate. Other major change is in exterior design, since 2016 Taurus is larger than its predecessors.
2016 Ford Taurus engine
Not only appearance is to be new, but also some drivetrain options could be improved for new Taurus. This sedan will be powered from 2.0-l turbocharged four-cylinder. Also, since new platform for 2016 Ford Taurus is certain, the 2.3-l V6 EcoBoost unit used by new 2015 Mustang could be used to give power to the car. However, both options are not confirmed. As engines we mentioned have been used by other vehicles, biggest news could come on transmission end. It is expected from company to develop its new system, a 9-speed automated gearbox. Nevertheless, we still don’t know it they will make it for 2016 Taurus or some other model.
2016 Ford Taurus redesign
New platform and significant weight reduction are highlights of the new 2016 Ford Taurus. However, new sedan will be built on new platform CD4. It has been already tested on latest Mondeo model from Ford. Because of that, we can guess what could bring CD4.The seventh generation of this vehicle will be longer and wider than its predecessors. Also, Mondeo gained few inches, so probably some same equipment is going to be installed in both cars. Weight drop is accomplished by the use of many lightweight materials. Aluminum is going to dominate in percentage of usage. By that, mpg rating is going to be massively boosted.

We expect new 2016 Ford Taurus by the end of 2015. Market appearance will follow shortly, in first months of 2016. However, price is unknown so far.
