A predictable look so far, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I hope there's a performance AWD system for the SHO, if that variant returns.
We're getting our first look at the next-generation Ford Taurus thanks to some spy shooters in China. While the camouflage and angle of the photo keep changes to the body a secret, there's no hiding the massive hexagonal, chrome grille up front. It lends a look very similar to the Fusion.
Beyond the eye-grabbing grille, the headlights are reshaped, but are still quite squinty. There's also a new lower air dam that runs the width of the front with LEDs at the top corners.
The hexagonal grille fits the design of the Fusion well, but this single image makes it look a little too big and disproportionate for the fullsize Ford sedan. Maybe the integration works better from a different angle, though.
I agree, nice design - might as well give it a strong family resemblance. But I hope people can tell them apart!
I see a little bit of this...
Not at all. I don't think it looks bad from what little we see. Also, the "shape" of the grille is evolving a bit. It seems like it is less "tapered" than previous Aston-inspired grilles and appears more symmetrical.
Actually, a lot of the latter was mixed into the current gen Taurus.I see a little bit of this...
getting mixed into the front end.
I think that's Geordy's (Star Trek) car isn't it?Actually, a lot of the latter was mixed into the current gen Taurus.
Hardly a bad thing, but the Fusion has worn on me. I do like the more formal look of the front end, though.
I knew they let the blind drive.I think that's Geordy's (Star Trek) car isn't it?
My money is on refresh.Is this an all-new Taurus or just a a refresh?
No.It lends a look very similar to the Fusion.
Perhaps it won't be sold in the US?Why would Ford be testing a Taurus in China? Doesn't stack up for me.
I assume China is a LOT bigger market for BIG cars then the US ONE + I thought FORD said the Taurus is LIVING ON in China but NOT necessarily in the USAWhy would Ford be testing a Taurus in China? Doesn't stack up for me.
