There are two different engine configurations offered on the Taurus sedans. The standard engine on is a 288-hp 3.5L V6. While the output is rated somewhat less than the twin charged V6, the fuel economy improvements are significant. The V6 is estimated at a combined 21 mpg, while the Taurus SHO TT 8-cylinder manages 16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. At the base SE level, the Taurus is a relatively well-equipped comfortable sedan, including a rearview camera system, cruise control, Sync Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio connectivity, air conditioning, rear-seat heater ducts, power front seats, and a 6-speaker audio system with CD player and aux-in port. SEL models add dual-zone climate control, upgraded upholstery, LED supplemental lamps, remote start, reverse parking sensors, heated mirrors with puddle lamps, satellite radio compatibility, and 18-inch painted aluminum wheels.
