2017 Ford Taurus redesign

As we said, 2017 Ford Taurus will come completely redesigned. It will get new platform, same that is used for new Fusion, but slightly modified. Compared to current model, it will have slightly larger dimensions but like many company’s new models, it will be much lighter than its predecessor. Thanks to new technologies that include massive use of light materials such as aluminum and HSS in car’s body structure, 2017 Taurus will be around 500 lbs lighter, which will provide much better fuel economy and overall performance of the car. When it is about exterior look, new model will come with much more dynamic and aggressive look. It will completely adopt company’s new design language, which includes recognizable front fascia with hexagonal grille and narrower LED headlights. It is still unknown how interior of 2017 Ford Taurus will look like, but if we consider that new model will come larger and with longer wheelbase, it is for sure that there will be more space inside new model.
