The redesigned 2022 Ford Taurus is coming, but only for the China market. This sedan was one of the best-selling car nameplates in the United States, starting from 1986 to 2019. However, soon after, the Taurus was overtaken by the current Toyota Camry model.
Interestingly, the Taurus sales are growing in China and the redesigned variant is happening. For 2022, this sedan will receive some essential updates to keep up with other rivals in the segment. Taurus is in its seventh generation, and it looks way better in our opinion than the European Mondeo variant.
2022 Ford Taurus Redesign
The 2022 Ford Taurus is a massive car. Generally speaking, it’s nearly equal to some full-size SUVs when it comes to length. However, the new tough-looking 4-door will receive some refreshments, but still nothing significant. The overall design remains attractive, featuring attractive front fascia and slimmer LED headlights. The side profile remains the same, with the same sleek lines and 17-inch wheels.
However, choosing the high-performance SHO trim, you will get much bigger 20-inch wheels and tires. This trim also hosts a unique rear spoiler that gives more sporty look.
Inside, the 2022 Ford Taurus offers a very roomy and beautiful cabin. The seating layout is excellent, and there is plenty of room to fit five passengers with decent legroom and headroom. Like the European Mondeo, the Ford Taurus is also well equipped. Even the SE model offers a long list of features. For example, the new model will reportedly host Ford’s latest Sync 4 with a much larger infotainment screen. Also as standard comes 60/40-split folding rear seat, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power driver’s seat, 6-speaker audio system, steering-wheel controls for audio and cruise control, and Ford’s programmable MyKey system.
On top of that, safety is way better than before, including electronic traction and stability control, line keep assist, brake assist, dual front airbags, front-seat-mounted side airbags, and side-curtain airbags protecting the front and rear passengers.
2022 Ford Taurus Powertrain Specs
Most of the changes are going to happen under the hood of the 2022 Ford Taurus. It seems that the manufacturer is finally ready to introduce some of the new engine options. However, at this point, we don’t know the exact specs of the new ones, but some reports are suggesting the return of the 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine. This powertrain is very potent, and it delivers 365 horsepower under the Taurus SHO high-performance variant.
However, the current sedan uses a 3.5-liter V6 unit that makes 288 horsepower. Generally speaking, this engine is still potent, but it’s time to be replaced with the new one, for sure.
Release Date, Price
The sales of the all-new 2022 Ford Taurus will probably happen next year. This stylish sedan will receive some mild upgrades that will not affect its pricing, at all. The current base model costs over $30,000, and it can pass 40k when it is fully equipped. Some media suggest that the following Ford Taurus will gain more standard features than before.
However, the Titanium Plus will remain the range-topping trim level and the most favorite. As we said, the Taurus will continue to be offered only for the China market.
