Four Trims & Endless Features

Whether you have a family of five or you carpool to work, the 2017 Ford Taurus in Santa Clara offers the right amount of space to fit everyone comfortably. Plus, the full-size sedan's cavernous trunk can fit a multitude of backpacks, briefcases and more.

Standard, the entry-level Taurus SE comes with six-way power front seats, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, Sync voice controls, two USB ports and a 4.2-inch radio display.

To access even more features, 2017 Ford Taurus reviews suggest upgrading to one of three additional trims: SEL, Limited and the sport-tuned SHO. The Taurus SEL adds popular equipment like dual-zone automatic climate control and remote start, while Limited has more premium comforts like leather upholstery and heated/ventilated front seats. Additionally, the Limited trim also adds SYNC 3 infotainment and an 8-inch touchscreen. To learn more about the many other available features, stop by our Ford dealership for a test drive.

Powerful Performer

The 2017 Ford Taurus in Santa Clara gets its power from one of three engine configurations, each paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. The first is a 3.5-liter V6, which makes plenty of power for everyday driving at 288 horsepower and 254 lb.-ft. of torque. Front-wheel-drive models can also be had with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes similar power--240 hp and 270 lb.-ft.--while offering improved fuel economy.

Lastly, the high-performance Taurus SHO houses a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 rated at 363 hp and 350 lb.-ft. This model also comes with standard all-wheel drive, wheel-mounted shift paddles, a sport-tuned suspension and a plethora of available performance upgrades.

Smart Safety Tech

Safety starts with antilock brakes, front and side curtain airbags, integrated blind-spot mirrors, a rearview camera and 911 collision notification. Additionally, those with teenage drivers can utilize the MyKey programmable parameters feature. Starting on the Limited trim, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, forward collision warning and more become available, should buyers choose to add them.
