Company has big expectations from new 2018 Ford Taurus. According to the latest reports, current model will end its production soon, and new model should come as replace. This model is one of the well-known nameplates from American manufacturer. It is in production for a very long time. Original model came way back in 1985. So far, we have seen seven generations of it. First model belong to the class of mid-size cars, while newer are full-size. Latest version was presented last year in China. Although designed primarily for this country, we believe that this model will come soon to other markets too, including North America. However, those are just some our predictions, and we will have for some more time to get official information.

The 2018 Ford Taurus should come completely new for the U.S. market. Those are rumors that can be found on the internet. As you probably know, company announced that the production of current model will end soon. Meanwhile, new Taurus was presented for the Chinese market. So, there is a big chance to see this mode introduced in North America too. This model comes with plenty of similar characteristics with new Fusion. These two models ride on the same platform, but Taurus features a bit longer wheelbase. So, besides bigger dimensions, other changes are barely notable. Design language is the same, and overall styling between these two models is very close. Inside, 2018 Ford Taurus will be very spacious and full of latest technologies. Compared to Chinese model, we expect to see more features in offer, and also use of better materials.
2018 Ford Taurus engines
Current model that is offered in China is available with two engines. Those are 2.0 liter and 2.7 liter V6 EcoBoost engines. The first one comes as base offer, and has max power of 240 horses. The other one is good for about 325 horsepower. Besides these two units, we expect some addition for the U.S. market. However, exact engines are unknown. Current, sixth generation uses several engine, but only 3.5 liter V6 unit is comes with a EcoBoost technologies, while others a little bit outdated. So, expect this engine in offer too. It is good for about 365 horses.
