Edmunds' Expert Review
- Available four-cylinder engine returns high fuel economy
- excellent results in government and IIHS crash tests
- rides comfortably and quietly on the highway
- giant trunk is one of the roomiest in the large sedan class
- available all-wheel drive for enhanced wet-weather traction.
- Interior doesn't seem as airy or spacious as it should
- feels slow and ponderous when driving around turns
- performance SHO model lacks the punch of big engine rivals.
The new Sync 3 infotainment system replaces the much-maligned MyFord Touch interface. Otherwise, the 2016 Taurus is largely unchanged.
Looking for a classic American sedan that has its foot firmly in the future? Then you'll want to take a look at the 2016 Ford Taurus. It not only offers a fuel-efficient turbocharged four-cylinder engine, it has Ford's latest technology interface that makes it easier than ever to integrate your smartphone. There's also available all-wheel drive for sure-footed driving in harsh weather and a huge trunk to carry groceries or golf clubs. Want to learn more?
The Ford Taurus enters its seventh year of production in 2016, and the big sedan is showing its age. With newer rivals offering added luxury, more features and better driving dynamics, the 2016 Ford Taurus falls short of class-leading status, though it remains a stylish and competent car overall.
This year does see one significant upgrade with the introduction of Ford's latest Sync 3 infotainment system. Our initial impressions are that Sync 3 is far more responsive and user-friendly than the outgoing and often criticized MyFord Touch system. As ever, the Taurus also benefits from a spacious cabin, a massive trunk, a powerful SHO model and available all-wheel drive.
Among the Taurus' liabilities, however, we count poor outward visibility, interior materials that fall short of today's expectations and ponderous handling. Furthermore, although the SHO's performance is impressive for this segment, it may not live up to its hefty price tag.
With all of this in mind, we suggest shoppers look into alternatives like the Edmunds A-rated Toyota Avalon. Other strong B-rated competitors include the Chevrolet Impala, Chrysler 300, Hyundai Azera and the related Kia Cadenza. For those with a penchant for performance, we'd recommend the Chevrolet SS before the Taurus SHO. The 2016 Ford Taurus has its hands full in such capable company, but with rumors of a full redesign afoot, perhaps a renaissance is coming soon.
Standard safety features for all 2016 Ford Taurus models include antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags, integrated blind-spot mirrors, a rearview camera and emergency telematics via paired cell phones. Also included is Ford's MyKey system that monitors the vehicle and allows owners to set certain limitations and alerts for valets and teen drivers. Rear parking sensors are standard from the SEL trim on up.
Optional features for the Limited and SHO trims include a frontal collision warning system that also pre-charges the brakes for maximum responsiveness, a lane-departure warning and prevention system, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert and an automated parallel parking system.
In government crash tests, the Taurus earned the top five-star rating overall, including five stars for both frontal and side protection. Likewise, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Taurus its best rating of "Good" in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side and roof-strength crash tests, as well as a "Good" rating for rear impacts (head restraints and seats).
