One of the most important news of the 2011 Motor Show in New York is definitely the Ford Taurus, which has received a light facelift and technical updates to debut on the market where last year found 68,000 American clients.
DESIGN: The new Ford Taurus highlights its still dynamic design with a new hexagonal grille, redesigned hood, new bumper with integrated daytime running lights, new rear lights with Led and bigger alloy wheels. The interior offers the multimedia system MYFORD Touch with 8-inch screen, voice control with activation by the steering wheel, which is heated as well as front seats, those offer a massage function with ActiveMotion.
OPERATION DOWNSIZING: engines choice is a minor dispalcement which now involves all car manufacturers and also affects the Detroit downsizing. New Taurus is available with a 2-liter basic engine EcoBoost turbo by 237 hp and 338 Nm of torque, which to many Americans could seem not very powerful, then can opt for a classic 3.5-liter V6 with 290 hp. Both engines comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. The SHO version with the 3.5-liter engine delivers 365 hp and 475 Nm of torque.
In any case, the new Ford Taurus boasts a reduction in consumption and exhaust emissions, due to a different battery management, electric power steering and air conditioning compressor with variable load.
