2017 Ford Taurus and Taurus SHO spied testing in Melbourne

Got scoop?!

Sources suggest the two vehicles here are undergoing hot-weather testing and are being evaluated for the Chinese market. The same source also indicated that we are unlikely to see Taurus in Australia as a replacement for the Falcon. The source explained that the Mondeo is closer in size to Falcon and familiar to consumers.

The seventh-generation Ford Taurus is likely to be launched in the North American market in late 2015 or early 2016 and marks the latest iteration of the company’s popular large sedan, which was once sold in Australia (remember the Taurus of circa 1996?). The car is expected to be first shown at the Shanghai motor show in April this year.

To date, I still think the best interpretation of the current generation was the slammed and bagged 2010 Taurus that Mobsteel did. It was wicked in black--and it didn't hurt that Mobsteel tweaked the boost to produce about 450 hp and over 500 ft lbs of torque from the D35 V6.

Just my personal opinion (keep in mind, my opinion and a buck won't get you a cup of coffee at Starbuck's) Ford never allowed the last iteration of the Taurus SHO to realize its full potential. I think the ingredients were there--bold looks, AWD, boosted motor--just not quite bold enough, and not quite enough boost.
