Review Update: 2013 Ford Taurus Four-Cylinder EcoBoost

Ford-taurus
Ford's full-size Taurus sedan has a cramped front seat and an exasperating multimedia system, but there's also a lot to like about the Taurus, and the list just got a little longer. The Taurus has a comfortable ride and cavernous trunk, and the new-for-2013 turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder version offers impressive power and class-leading fuel economy.

As a class, sales of large sedans are falling, with the midsize sedan segment picking up shares. The Taurus, however, is going strong, with sales up 30.5% so far this year. Last year, Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays reviewed two V-6 versions of the Taurus, and he recently tested the newly introduced EcoBoost four-cylinder model. Mays thinks the new model will help keep sales strong.

"The four-cylinder allows the Taurus to top other full-size cars in gas mileage, excluding mild or full hybrids like the 2014 Chevrolet Impala eAssist or Toyota Avalon Hybrid, and it makes no deal-breaking sacrifices in the process," he said.

I like the new design, but I've heard a few negative reviews of the new Taurus. Maybe they'll work out the kinks next model year.

The Ford Taurus is sexy and smart. It gets the job done in Medford, New Jersey.
