2018 Ford Taurus Calgary AB
Full-size sedans aren't as popular as they used to be, with more consumers shifting their attention to SUVs as the people-hauling vehicle of choice. However, the Ford Taurus is keeping the torch lit for the segment and it very well might make you reconsider your options. There's much to like about the 2018 Taurus, including its very spacious interior and trunk, comfortable ride, high-level safety and available all-wheel drive — which makes it a good choice for Calgary drivers who have to deal with harsh winter road conditions.
With a cavernous interior volume of 102.2 cu-ft (2,894 L), your passengers will have plenty of space on your journeys. Even the rear seat passengers have room to stretch out their legs with the 37.8 inches (96.0 cm) of rear legroom. There's plenty of space for cargo as well, with a cargo volume of 20.1 cu-ft (569 L), while the 60/40 split-fold rear seats enable versatile cargo options. The Heated Steering wheel will keep your hands warm on the cold Calgary nights, while the Rear-Window Power Sunshade will keep the cabin from heating up too much during the summer months. And with the SYNC infotainment system, you have easy access to entertainment and connectivity features and useful functions.
High-Level Safety of the 2018 Ford Taurus
The 2018 Taurus offers the same safety features that enabled the previous-year model to get high ratings for both government crash tests and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It comes standard with AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control with Curve Control, which ensures a stable ride and confident handling around curves. The airbags feature a rollover sensor, as well as the protective Safety Canopy System. One of the biggest dangers when driving is not being able to see cars in your blind spot. The 2018 Taurus addresses this with its Blind Spot Information System. Also, backing up is made easy with the standard rearview camera.
With the 2018 Ford Taurus, you have a choice of three sophisticated engines. This includes the 240-hp 2.0L EcoBoost I-4, the 288-hp 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 and the 365-hp 3.5L EcoBoost V6. All of these powerplants are mated the smooth and efficient six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The Torque Vectoring Control and Electronic Power-Assisted Steering help give the Taurus excellent handling, while the available all-wheel drive system makes it easy to drive on snowy roads.
