If you’re looking for a big and comfortable 5-passenger sedan, the upcoming 2021 Ford Taurus is the real deal. As you may know, Ford bid adieu to the Taurus last year in the United States after more than three decades of production. However, this model is still living in China and we have some exclusive photos of it. It comes with a great design, a powerful V6 engine that is standard and it provides lots of high-tech options. Thanks to that, you’ll get feeling that you’re driving a pricey luxury sedan. On top of that, this beautiful model offers a cabin that is comfortable and quiet.
Taurus provides room for five occupants and many upscale materials inside. Not spacious as models such as Toyota Avalon, Buick LaCrosse, and Kia Cadenza, the Taurus model offers one of the best interiors on the market. Also, it comes with numerous safety aids and it starts just below $30,000.
2021 Ford Taurus Exterior Look
The upcoming 2021 Ford Taurus is one big sedan. Its dimensions are nearly equaled to some nowadays full-size SUVs. However, when it comes to sheer length, it looks smaller, thanks to its taut body lines and athletic short-deck/long-hood profile. Generally, this tough-looking 4-door car looks unique, especially if you go for the SHO trim. This trim will add stylish 20-inch wheels, as well as a unique rear spoiler for better airflow and aerodynamics.
The overall height of this car is perfect and it gives drivers a great visual commanding of the road. Besides, we like its low roof and wide stance that gives the Taurus a sleek look.
