The 2013 Ford Taurus Gets More Chiseled and Assertive

The 2013 Ford Taurus gains more attitude with a revamped exterior and added convenience features. What makes it even better than last year’s model is a new turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with EcoBoost® that improves fuel efficiency. The exterior gets a couple of changes for 2012 including a new grille and front fascia. The sharp and clean lines give the new hood and grille ample attention. It’s sportier and edgier.

The 2013 Ford Taurus comes in four body trims: SE, SEL, Limited and SHO. The entry level SE has 17-inch alloy wheels, LED tail lights, automatic headlights and exterior access keypad. It is equipped with cruise control, blind spot mirrors, 60/40 split-folding back seat, tilt-and telescoping steering wheel and a 6-speaker audio system with CD and auxiliary jack.

SEL gets 18-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel and improved cloth seats. It also has satellite radio and Sync system, which lets you control Bluetooth mobile handsets and other media devices with voice command.

The Limited trim is more feature-rich with perforated leather seats, 8-way power front seats, driver memory functions, wood-trimmed steering wheel, rear parking sensors, 19-inch wheels, rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition, ambient lighting and an even better Sync system. Most of the features on the Limited trim can be purchased on the SEL as optional packages.

The top of the line SHO has all the Limited trim features along with a better powertrain. It has a sport-tuned suspension and distinctly tuned steering. It’s equipped with Xenon headlights and faux-suede upholstery.

A 3.5 Liter V6 engine powers the 2013 Taurus. It produces 290 horsepower and 255 lb. ft. of torque. It also has a six-speed automatic with a manual shift button. There is an option for a turbocharged 2.0 Liter 4-cylinder engine, which makes 240 horsepower and 270 lb. ft. of torque. The SHO trim gains a more powerful 3.5 Liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine which produces 365 horsepower and 350 lb. ft. of torque.
