As the saying goes, “out with the old, in with the new.” Nothing could be truer when it comes to technology found in the 2016 Taurus. The Taurus, which previously housed the MyFord Touch system, now features a significant upgrade with Ford's latest Sync 3 infotainment system. Consumers are thrilled with the Sync 3, which is much more responsive and user-friendly than the previous system. Consumers also applaud the Sync 3s clean layout with clearly-arranged virtual buttons and easy pinch-and-swipe gestures that make navigation a breeze.
Full-size sedans are expected to exhibit a sense of luxury behind the wheel, so when consumers opt for the 2016 Taurus, they are more than pleased with its pleasing road manners. The 2016 Taurus houses one of two engines: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a 3.5-liter V6. Though both serve up adequate power, consumers typically favor the V6 because it provides a more upbeat performance, which makes for stronger driver engagement.
The 2016 lineup of the Taurus offers four trims – each packed with a plethora of upscale content. But the Taurus also offers consumers more with add-on items that are truly worthwhile. The SEL is one Taurus worth noting. Consumers enjoy it for its list of standard content like remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED accent lights, and more. But, what really ups the game for the Taurus SEL is the 201A package that's up for grabs. This package equips SEL models of the Taurus with extra perks, such as: keyless ignition and entry, power-adjustable pedals, and additional center audio speaker. Consumers are especially fond of the Sync 3's eight-inch touchscreen and twin color displays located in the gauge cluster.
Another Taurus trim consumers rave about is the Limited. Not only does it include excellent luxury-level content (automatic wipers and high beams, heated steering wheel and rear seats, and blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert), but it is the only trim to offer the optional Driver Assist package. Consumers love this package because it really ups the Taurus's safety level with top safety systems that provide everything from adaptive cruise control and automated parallel parking to frontal collision and lane-departure warning and protection. The all-time consumer favorite part of the Driver Assist package, however, is the front seats with a massage feature that makes all who sit up front say oo la la.
