TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Ford Taurus still runs at the head of the class in terms of space, practicality, and safety features, but driving enthusiasts and those wanting to be seen should probably steer clear. The 2010 Ford Taurus punches up Ford’s reputation for quality and features, with an engaging new SHO model to boost.
