    I've never been a fan of this generation Taurus. It's just an agglomeration of every uncontroversial Ford design cue on one vehicle. Bleh.

    The Taurus may be alive, but it doesn't look Well. I'm glad the Chinese like it as much as they do.

    Yeah, this one is about dictionary generic. USA Taurii are not bad looking, they're at least somewhat masculine looking, especially in cop car iteration, and we've got loads of Ford cop cars around here.

    Yeah the last North American Ford Taurus had a heritage old Ford sedan look which evolved from the Interceptor concept car which was pretty much an updated interpretation of the Ford 427 sedan concept car.

    These Chinese Tauruses have no classic Ford roots. Not even a resemblance as if it was passed down DNA from its ancestors.

    I liked the design of the discontinued Taurus, especially after the 2013 update. You appreciate it more now since it sits more comfortably next to the Crossovers on the road.
