Ford’s Taurus Setting Sail for Korea

These days, a Korean car coming to the U.S. marketplace is hardly news. But play that story in reverse, with a U.S. car making its way to Korea, and perhaps you’ve got something.
That’s exactly what’s happening with Ford’s 2008 Taurus, which is set to go on sale in Korea on August 27. The re-nosed, re-engined Five Hundred will take on cars like the Kia Opirus (spelled “Amanti” in America) and Renault Samsung’s SM5 and SM7 sedans.

Did you notice the comments after that story?

The Taurus is like Rodney Dangerfield: it don't get no respect.

Which is why they need to punch up the nameplate with a Twinforce-powered SE Taurus.
