2010 Ford Taurus SEL Review

Ford Taurus is an iconic vehicle that rose above other mid-sized vehicles during the 80s. It was a smart vehicle during that time and the car confirmed Ford's role in providing groundbreaking vehicles. But those days are long gone. Competition and the memory of the 2008 Taurus edition have dented the reputation of Taurus.
The US-based manufacturer will try the market again with the 2010 Ford Taurus SEL. On initial impressions, it does have something to offer car owners. The design was not exactly revamped but an improved front end has provided the "classy" view car owners hoped from Taurus.
Under the hood, Ford has made sure that the engine can handle the 4-ton sedan. The engine is 3.5 litre V6 which can churn out 263 horsepower. Surprisingly, the weight of the sedan doesn't increase its fuel consumption. The EPA Rating is at 18 mpg and 28 mpg for city and road use, respectively.
One thing that will really make car enthusiasts want to buy this car is the interior. The car is measured at 202.9 inch in size and has a massive trunk. At 20 cubic feet, you can practically place everything there for the weekend vacation.
The driving experience is also commendable. Although you might have to adjust a little bit because of its size, the six speed automatic transmission makes everything easy for the driver. You won't notice that the car is really heavy after getting the car on the road.
The 2010 Ford Taurus SEL is trying to erase the memories of car enthusiasts of its 2008 version. Aside from succeeding to convince enthusiasts with the 2010 version, the base price is also not bad: $30,980 for the basic configuration.


FOUR TONS? Now That's a heavy car! Perhaps you meant 4,000 pounds?
