If you are curious about the 2016 Ford Taurus release date, I have good news for you. Ford claimed that this car will make its debut in this fall. This full size sedan has been prepared very well by its automakers. Ford promises a lighter and faster sedan ever that they have launched before. In addition, fuel efficiency is the next complement for the new Taurus. Based on the market demand and also government regulator, I think fuel consumption becomes the most focuses one for popular automakers these days including Ford. Let us see the growth of this Taurus according to the official specifications.
2016 Ford Taurus Designs
I have compared the 2016 Ford Taurus with other sedans’ interior nowadays and the result is always belonging to this Ford flagship car. It has roomier interior and comfortable cabin. This interior is supported by larger and extended trunk. Not only roomiest interior, Taurus is also heaviest sedan ever because of its chassis which designed from a modification of Volvo designers. This chassis is also used since a decade ago. In other words, it is an old platform ever with many modifications. The classier features are also featured the cabin. The MyFord Touch lied down on the center stack with updates operating system. One of weaknesses that I found is only at the tall doors which reduce the aesthetic feel for me.
For the weight of 2016 Ford Taurus, I think it becomes lighter than previous model. It was proven by official weight of Taurus which about 4,050 pounds only. This lighter body will defeat other competitors such as Chevy Impala with 200 until 300 pounds of weight ranges. Although it is lighter, Ford applied longer wheelbase to increase the interior segment. Moreover, it is also wider than before. You will remember with Fusion model at new Taurus design. This longer and wider are also helping the handlind of Taurus.
2016 Ford Taurus Under the Hood
Ford has implemented upgraded engines options for their 2016 Ford Taurus. It means that they improved the current engine which belongs to outgoing model. The Mustang engine, 2.3L four-cylinder, will be a new engine for new Taurus. As usual V6 comes as standard and turbocharged for higher trims such as SHO. A unique way was shown by Ford in increasing the fuel economy of this sedan. They may be not use EcoBoost as usual but more prefer to use nine-speed transmission. Latest report, this car has 23 mpg combined of EPA ratings.
