At this moment still only a small portion of the details about the 2015 Ford Taurus redesigned model but still we could hear a decent amount of rumors and reports delivered for this car. What is most important to say is that many small changes will be offered but we do not expect to see anything revolutionary.
Main competitors to this vehicle represent the Chevrolet Impala, Toyota Avalon, Hyundai Azera and similar. For many years this vehicle brought decent sale results but never was able to take top spot on the market but with this redesign things could be changed.
2015 Ford Taurus Redesign
Similar engines will be offered for 2015 model like for the 2014 model. We will have the 3.5 liter V6 unit with 288 hp and 254 pound feet of torque but for many more interesting will be the 2.0 liter four cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost unit that brings 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.
There are some indications that the all new 320 hp 2.7 liter EcoBoost engine that we were able to see in new Mustang and Ford F-150 will be offered in this vehicle also. This unit is capable of delivering 320 hp and 370 pound feet of torque. For those that need more power, better performances and handling there is the SHO version that comes with 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost engine that is refined with two turbochargers and pumps out 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
It is obvious that all these numbers remained on the same level and only difference is the addition of new 2.7 liter EcoBoost engine. Fuel economy will also remain on the same level but we do expect to see slight improvements on this field. With 3.5 liter V6 unit we had 19/29/23 mpg if optioned with AWD than it drops to 18/26/21 mpg. The 2.0 liter EcoBoost the 2015 Ford Taurus returned 22/32/26 mpg while the SHO model with 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine returns 17/25/20 mpg.
Most changes will be delivered with new technology and those changes will not be easily noticeable. Design is still fresh but it needs to offer more so it could compete successfully with other vehicles in this segment.
Release Date Of 2015 Taurus
We are still waiting for additional information’s to leak since we are short for few things about this car. It is interesting that we still do not have any spy images from tests. We expect that the redesigned model of Taurus will be officially presented in the next few months, probably till the summer and that it will arrive to dealerships before the end of this year.
