INTRODUCING THE NEW 2010 FORD TAURUS.
PRECISION. PRIDE. PASSION.
We challenged our team to deliver the most driver-focused, precisely
engineered automobile we could design. A car that not only changes what
people drive, but how they drive.
With unwavering commitment and unrelenting attention to every last detail,
we’re proud to have created the new 2010 Ford Taurus – a vehicle so innovative,
fordvehicles.com
it includes purposeful, state-of-the-art technologies and surprisingly brilliant
features that no other car in the class offers.
To find out more, read on. To experience everything that makes the new
Taurus unlike any other, drive one today.

MAGNIFICENT MILES
Beauty has its benefits.
Here’s a surprising one:
The crease that runs across
the trunk on Taurus isn’t just
for looks. It’s one of the many
carefully finessed details that
create an aerodynamic, windslicing shape, contributing
to enhanced performance,
interior quiet and fuel economy.
Every square inch counts.
TAURUS LIMITED • INGOT SILVER METALLIC • AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT
FOR EVERY LINE, THERE IS A REASON.
“Follow any line on this car, and just as soon as it seems to disappear, another will
pick up and race you right around the car,” explains Earl Lucas, Design Manager
for the new 2010 Ford Taurus. The effect is the result of many dedicated hours
in the design studio, sculpting the perfect curves.
Indeed, this physique keeps your eye constantly moving – from the chrome
grille, over the confident domed hood, and down the muscular body. You may
fordvehicles.com
pause a moment to ponder a gleaming, meticulously machined wheel. Then trace
the shapely shoulder back to the forward-leaning tail.
The flow seems uninterrupted and flawlessly coherent, thanks to its purity of
design. To accentuate every detail, a rich paint finish with clearcoat is fastidiously
applied and then scrutinized by ultrasound to ensure that Taurus appears as if
it’s been dipped in a deep, liquid gloss coating.

HIGH-PROFILE DESIGN.
Inside, many pleasurable details welcome you in and invite you to stay a while. Like the sleek
exterior, this interior is trim. The seats are taut and comforting. Even the door panels sport
well-defined ribs. A sweeping center console flows through the vehicle, imparting a sense of
sporty elegance and housing tidy storage spaces to keep clutter in its place. An environment
like this deserves to be discovered – not covered.
fordvehicles.com
38°
A NEW ANGLE ON INTERIORS
The 38° forward lean of the center stack pushes interior boundaries
further than Ford stylists have ever gone. This carefully considered design
expands the space and elevates the controls. At the same time, it visually
separates the 2 front passenger compartments as it sweeps through the
cabin. Formed with unbroken lines, the seamless shape bespeaks
refinement and craftsmanship.

RINGS OF RELAXATION
Simplicity and state-of-the-art technology
comfortably coexist. Evidence: A subtle
repeating Zen pattern on the speaker covers
and within the cupholders and storage
compartments provides a surprising sense
of well-being.

SOOTHES YOUR SENSE OF INNER HARMONY.
Ask our acoustics engineers and they’ll tell you: There’s a difference between
“sound” and “noise.” Sound is part of the much-desired driver connection that
provides active feedback, like the hum of the engine or gentle stir of the steering
wheel. It engages and informs you. Noise, vibration and harshness, on the other
hand, are distractions. Often caused by road, wind, traffic and mechanicals, these
NVH annoyances have no place in a no-compromises car like the new 2010 Taurus.
Thanks to numerous sound engineering features, this interior is a quiet, driverfocused space that seals out noise so you can appreciate every sweet sound within
the cabin, including conversations and music.
fordvehicles.com
A. Front inlet air-induction system delivers smooth, linear sound quality and enhanced performance.
B. Low chin spoiler helps reduce wind noise under the body.
C. 3-layered door seals help shut out traffic and wind noise.
D. Engineered, expandable baffles in every pillar create barriers that block and redirect sound.
E. Acoustic-laminated SoundScreenTM glass helps deflect wind and traffic noise.
F. Sash door construction increases upper door rigidity to resist vibration.
G. Sound-deadening headliner helps absorb noise.
H. Closed section rear headers stiffen the roof to inhibit squeaks, rattles and road noise.
I. Carefully aligned, precisely fitting body panels help eliminate wind turbulence.
J. Reinforced decklid enhances resistance to vibration; sound-deadening materials in the trunk,
rear seat and footwells dampen suspension noise.

THE SHIFTING PARADIGM
Available racing-style paddle shifters on
the steering wheel put the driver in control of
manual gear shifts. Rather than second-guessing
the driver, this available 6-speed SelectShift
Automatic TM transmission enables “match-rev”
downshifts to hold manually selected gears.
UP TO
28 MPG

TAURUS LIMITED • INGOT SILVER METALLIC • AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT
ENTHUSIASTICALLY AND EFFICIENTLY PERFORMS TO EXACTING STANDARDS.
How did we achieve such an exhilarating feel of the road? We “dialed it in”
with engineering prowess and years of experience. The refinement began with
advanced computer-aided design, and ended after countless hours behind the
wheel and in the engineering lab, tuning calibrations to perfect the ride and
handling balance. “Each change was designed to wake you up and make
you feel alive behind the wheel,” explains Ford Taurus Vehicle Dynamics
Development Engineer and race car driver, Cristina Rodriguez.
1
Whether it’s the standard front-wheel-drive configuration, the available
All-Wheel-Drive model, or the ultra-tight 365-hp Taurus SHO, the calibrations
were modified to maintain the commitment to engineering excellence that delivers
that same engaging driving dynamic. A 263-hp 3.5L Duratec® V6 engine provides
smooth, efficient power to a standard 6-speed transmission. And standard
AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control brings an uncompromising level of
confidence to every drive.1
Remember that even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. It’s always possible to lose control of a
vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions. 2 EPA-estimated 18 mpg city/28 hwy., FWD with 6-speed automatic transmission.

ESTABLISH YOUR OWN AIR SPACE.
Surround yourself with the power of available radar technology.
No other vehicle in the class offers this kind of peace of mind and
convenience. Only the new 2010 Taurus.
WAKE-UP CALL
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA), up to a third of all crash reports involve rear-end
collisions. One key reason: driver distraction. While big,
fast-cooling, ventilated disc brakes in the new Taurus provide
exceptional stopping power, only you can control your attention
and reaction time. That’s why Taurus offers available state-of-theart radar systems that are designed to help you avoid an accident.
66
44

29
SAFE DEGREES OF SEPARATION
Available class-exclusive Adaptive Cruise Control uses
forward radar to monitor traffic. It’s designed to adjust your
cruising speed to maintain a preset “headway” distance to
the vehicle in front of you (29, 44 or 66 yards).
Based on a speed of 60 mph.
RED ALERT
Early warning is key to helping prevent an accident, so Taurus
offers available Collision Warning with Brake Support. This
radar-based system is designed to alert you if its sensors detect
a potential collision with the car in front of you by flashing a
heads-up display red warning light across the windshield and
sounding an alarm. That alert can provide 1.5 to 2.5 seconds
for you to hit the brakes. If you don’t react in time, it pre-charges
the brakes and increases brake-assist sensitivity to provide full
responsiveness when you brake.
fordvehicles.com
YOUR LOOKOUT
Help avoid neck wrenching and panic maneuvers
with the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information
System). When driving, this vigilant watchdog
uses two radar sensors located in the rear quarter
panels to detect vehicles in the surrounding
lanes. If a vehicle enters your blind-spot zones,
the system alerts you with a warning light in the
appropriate sideview mirror.
BACKUP CLEARANCE
Unlike most rear-sensing systems, the available
Cross Traffic Alert system uses radar to watch
for traffic behind you when slowly backing out
of a parking spot. When it detects vehicles up
to 45' away (about 5 parking spaces), it sends
an audible warning, a message center alert,
and a visual display in the corresponding mirror.
Brilliant technology to help prevent a bad day.

Enhance your drive, ease your stress, facilitate connections,
entertain your passengers. Any way you look at it, the new
2010 Taurus is designed to make your drive more productive
with innovative, attentive features and more meaningful
technologies than ever before.
A. Exclusive Sony® Audio – Taurus is the first 5-passenger large
car in North America to offer a Sony Sound System with surround
sound and Sony DSP processing as a factory option. Its 390 watts
of continuous power and 12 high-quality speakers are specifically
tailored to the Taurus cabin for impeccable fidelity.
B. Rear View Camera – This available system displays a color image
with guidance markers on your rearview mirror or 8" navigation
screen (if equipped) to assist you in backing up.
C. Rear-window power sunshade – One touch and the available
sunshade rises, blocking out harmful rays and heat, without
compromising visibility.
D. Rain-sensing windshield wipers – This available feature uses an
infrared beam and sensor to monitor precipitation, then automatically
turns on the wipers and varies their speed to react to unpredictable
conditions. No more fumbling with controls when you should be
focusing on the road.
Ambient Lighting – Choose this option, and you can select from 7 hues.
Color will illuminate the cupholders, footwells and door pulls for instant ambience.
E. Easy FuelTM capless fuel filler – Pump in. Pump out. No messy
cap to touch. Fewer evaporative emissions.
F. Auto High Beam headlamps – Using an available windshieldmounted camera to monitor surrounding traffic, Taurus switches
to high-intensity lighting when no other headlamps or taillamps
are detected.

FAST FORWARD
Here’s a flatline that’ll make your pulse race. No need to wait for rpm to build, just enjoy the
broad, linear torque band all the way from 1500 to 5000 rpm for knock-you-back-in-yourseat launch and acceleration.
GRACE UNDER PRESSURE
EcoBoost’s twin turbochargers are capable of an astounding
205,000 revolutions per minute, so they spin up fast without
turbo lag. Energy from the exhaust – otherwise wasted – rotates
the turbine wheels. Each turbine is coupled to a compressor that
pressurizes the incoming air and mixes it with the atomized fuel in
the combustion chamber, significantly increasing output per liter.
Since what goes in must come out, SHO has a free-flowing dual
exhaust from the engine, clear to the rear.
ECOBOOST: SHOCKINGLY SOPHISTICATED.
At the heart of SHO’s performance is the all-new, highly advanced 3.5L EcoBoostTM V6 twin-turbocharged, directinjection engine. From a modest 3.5 liters, it delivers a stunning 365 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque.1 The secret is the
masterful partnership of twin turbochargers and direct fuel injection – the first such production engine in North America.
That means you enjoy the power output of a V8, with better fuel economy and lower emissions than a naturally aspirated
8-cylinder engine. All with immediate response, at any speed. Stunningly rewarding.

with the Performance Package. It includes upgraded
brake pads, sport-calibrated EPAS steering, a
“Sport Mode” setting for the AdvanceTrac® system,
a shorter 3.16:1 final drive ratio (vs. 2.77:1) for faster
acceleration, and 20" summer performance tires on
premium painted-aluminum wheels for tenacious grip.

GET IN TIGHT WITH TAURUS SHO.
Tighter handling, tighter turns, a tighter relationship with the road. (We know you
don’t seek approval, but you’ll welcome this kind of feedback.) With SHO, driving
dynamics took a serious turn. We optimized chassis calibrations for precise
response to driver inputs and exceptional body control in the curves. Unique,
SHO-specific equipment includes sport-tuned struts and shocks, a larger front
stabilizer bar, a thicker rear anti-roll bar, higher spring rates and higher-rate
fordvehicles.com
front strut mounts. A greater power bias to the rear wheels gives the standard
All-Wheel-Drive SHO superb balance. At the critical driver interface, advanced
Electric Power-Assisted Steering delivers crisp response and excellent oncenter feel. And at the asphalt, available 20" wheels with wide performance tires
generate maximum adhesion. Hold on.
