Odd that there's no pics of the rear that I could find in a quick search.
Looks nicer than the current one, but I'd like to see more of it.
Hey, you gotta watch that man...He'll go coastal on ya
The high hood and short dash-to-axle scream FWD, which is bad news for the production Continental's chances of becoming stubbified. Ford better have a trick up their sleeve.

That is a perfect interpretation of a larger fusion sedan. Very very classy

Nice, but in the same way the Chevy SS is, overall nice strong shape, good detailing, but lacking visual excitement. I find it very unfortunate that the Chinese prefer this as it seems to be dictating what we get in the USA. Hopefully as the Chinese culture changes over the years their desire for bland changes as well.
The back seat does look nice.
If Ford makes a long wheelbase version of this I think it will make a great livery vehicle in the USA.
Very elegant. I wonder if we'll see a SHO on this generation.

It looks nice. Looks clean. But it looks just like the current one, which I guess it can't be faulted for, but it looks very heavy. The Hodor of full-size sedans.
Interior looks faaaaabulouth. Least that rear seat console does, for the price.
And this Taurus is very nice. A scaled up Fusion, essentially. I prefer the Impala too.
The interior seems, in these photos at least, VERY well done.
Isn't this China only?
Does this employ a new platform?
The proportions seem so much better overall than the current car:
The dash-axle seems about the same, but the front over hang seems much more taught. The overall height seems lower than the current car too, which is just as important for overall proportion.

Ford has done a great job updating the Taurus. They addressed the large trunk and gave the car some nice sophisticated lines. Looking forward to eventually seeing this in the states.
Based on the wheelbase, I wonder if this will be the basis for the next Flex?
Fusion + Continental Comcept = Taurus
