2018 Ford Taurus Redesign and Changes
Some of the critics that Ford Taurus has received every since he was launched back in 2010 is that it’s excessively big, overweight, has a bad interior visibility, and a bad fuel economy. However, since Ford is limited by the government to make such severe changes like downsize engines, use a new lightweight platform, and completely redesign the car, it’s just not possible. So, what will you get with the new 2018 Ford Taurus?
You can expect to get minor trim configuration changes. In terms of the exterior, the 2018 Ford Taurus can get a new grille with updated front and rear lights, and redesigned bumpers.
The 2018 Ford Taurus will include 4 different trim levels – SE, SEL, Limited, and the SHO.
