2011 Taurus Delivers Full-Size Style and Value

Taurus is aimed at drivers who might move family and friends, yet who place a premium on the driving experience and the technologies that make time on the road more meaningful and fun.

Exterior design details are sculpted and powerful - from the hood-mounted powerdome that speaks to the strength behind its confident grille to the pronounced fenders and fascia. Bold headlamps combined with recessed parking lamps frame a bold expression of the signature Ford three-bar grille - and the lowered roofline helps make the Taurus more aspirational.
Vibrant new colors for 2011 include Bordeaux Reserve Red Metallic, Kona Blue Metallic and Sterling Gray Metallic.

Wheels from 17- to 19-inches in diameter fill the sculpted wheel wells and lend Taurus a muscular and athletic stance. The raised shoulder lines provide a confident profile and enable generous trunk capacity.

Inside, a forward-leaning center stack - home to the climate controls, audio components and available navigation screen - flows through the instrument panel and into the center console. This smart design allows for the interior to be formed with unbroken lines to impart seamless quality and craftsmanship.

The door panels employ an innovative urethane tooling process providing unique soft texture and identity to surfaces, with visible stitching and a handcrafted appeal. This same process allows for two-tone finishes, enabling model series differentiation.

Engine and Transmission

Taurus for 2011 comes standard with the proven Duratec 3.5-liter V-6, generating 263 horsepower and 249 ft-lb of torque. This award-winning engine earns a ULEV-II emissions certification and comes paired with a choice of two new six-speed automatic transmissions.

The smooth and refined Duratec V-6 helps the front-wheel-drive Taurus deliver highway fuel economy of up to 18 mpg city and 28 highway. Taurus reflects the company's commitment to deliver the best or among the best fuel economy across the vehicle segments in which it competes.

Taurus fuel economy is aided by the use of a two-speed fuel pump and aggressive deceleration fuel shutoff technology.
