2011 Ford Taurus
Review, Prices, Comparisons, Pictures
The Ford Taurus got a pretty drastic makeover in 2010, and the 2011 model picks up right where the 2010 model left off. With four trims to choose from, the 2011 Ford Taurus has the ability to satisfy drivers as a family vehicle or a sporty ride. The base model, the SE, comes standard with a 3.5 liter 24-valve V6 engine. The SEL and Limited trims also come with that same 3.5 liter V6 engine, yet also come with a slew of packages that can be used to customize the Ford Taurus to your liking. All trims of the 2011 Ford Taurus come with automatic transmission and a V6 engine, so power is not something you have to sacrifice. As far as Fuel economy is concerned, the SE receives 28 mpg highway and 18 mpg city, while the SEL, Limited and SHO trims receive 25 mpg highway and 17 mpg city. The SEL trim jumps past the SE in terms of features and customization, and for little added cost. With 2 packages that allow the driver to add convenience and technology features to their vehicle, the SEL trim can offer a very enjoyable driving experience. The Limited trim comes with several more options and a couple more packages that really add a luxurious flavor to the Ford Taurus. Then there is the Ford Taurus SHO, perhaps one of the best vehicles on the road today. The SHO has a few of the same packages an options available on the SEL and Limited trims, but has stellar performance that you just don't find in a family sedan.
The Ford Taurus has come a long way, having been on the road since the mid 1980s, and now considered one of the best American large-sized sedans on the market. With one of the top safety ratings, some of the best customizable trims and one of the most powerful V6 engines on the road today, the 2011 Ford Taurus is an excellent choice for any style of driver.
