In keeping with Ford's recent ramp-up of new technology features, TheCarConnection.com discovers an abundance of new accessories available for the 2009 Ford Taurus X.
The 2009 Ford Taurus X is offered in SEL, Eddie Bauer, and Limited trims, with a wealth of features in all three. The base Ford Taurus X SEL starts around $27,000, and for that money, you'll get "front air conditioning...cruise control, cloth upholstery," full power accessories, and an "AM/FM/CD player [with] digital-media player connection," ConsumerGuide reports. Edmunds notes that the Eddie Bauer edition adds "gold body cladding, two-tone leather upholstery in the first and second rows, [and] wood-grain interior trim." The Limited trim of the Ford Taurus X brings "heated front seats, memory system (driver seat, mirrors)," and an "upgraded sound system," according to ConsumerGuide. Both the Eddie Bauer and Limited trims get Ford's SYNC wireless cell phone and iPod integration system. MyRide.com says that "the iPod function was a hit thanks to its seamless connectivity, but our editors were split on the phone front—one editor had no issues while two others suffered from phone dysfunction."
The optional features for the 2009 Ford Taurus X win praise from reviewers for both their appeal and their packaging. Cars.com is pleased to report that "options are served a la carte, not locked into packages with other features you might not want." The options list, according to Autoblog, includes "a roof-mounted DVD player with flip down screen and auxiliary inputs," while Cars.com says that a "sonar Reverse Sensing System, a stand-alone option, is helpful for parking" the Ford 2009 Taurus X. ConsumerGuide lists the most notable of the remaining options as a "navigation system" and "power sunroof," along with "satellite radio" and a "power liftgate" that is available for $475.
