    First and foremost you are a big idiot. Ford delivers what you picky auto writers have been askig for and now you take pokes at it. Still not as handsome as Malibu or Altima
    Very big car are your comments. A big car with excellent fuel economy and power, quit your gripping. If you want a small car keep your smart car. As for looks, don't give me your opinion on looks, let the people decide what they like, your unfounded, baseless comments only add to your undeniable stupidity.

    Some of your comments about the new Ford Taurus are absolutely OFF THE WALL.
    "Big car" The car was,is,will be a big car because It was meant to be a FULL-SIZED SEDAN.
    IF YOU CONSIDER YOURSELVES GOOD AUTO JOURNALIST, Never ever mention your personal preferences, even a FOOL knows that styling is highly subjective in other plainer english, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    It's also pointless to compare it to mid-sized sedans like the malibu and Altima, that's what the 2010 Fusion is for, which by the way blows them out the water in the syling.
    did you see that? that was my personal opinion.

    Stewart and Carguy - I agree. Ford is doing this right. The Taurus is a full sized sedan to fill the need of the codgers who still love their old Ford 500 sedans. However, the SHO (pricy you say? Not so much for genuine muscle car) will appeal to car nuts who will come up with the dollars. An American made four wheel drive muscle car, ala MB/BMW will do the job.
    Stand back! Ford is on a roll.

    I agree with the others, Ford is on a roll. Best styling, powertrains, and reliability.

    Mystified by your poor fuel economy. Have 3000 miles on a SE FWD . 22.3 MPG overall since new including 300 mile highway trip which was 30.1 MPG averaging 63 mph. All but the highway trip on oxigenated fuel.
