Re: Chinese 2016 Taurus Article With Lots Of Photos

Just downloaded the 2018 Taurus Order Guide.

No embedded modem, 2018 Explorer, Escape, Fusion, Mustang and others got it.

No more power adjustable pedals on the SEL, just Limited and SHO.

Only thing new are two colors.

Another sign Taurus is dead man walking.

Re: Chinese 2016 Taurus Article With Lots Of Photos

I used to be a warranty/service parts manufacturer. I know what you mean. A bigger concern is everyone with a Limited or a SHO, with the Sony sound system. Taurus never got the push button HVAC controls that Explorer got in 2015. I'm willing to bet that National Parts in Livonia, MI will only keep 1...

Re: Chinese 2016 Taurus Article With Lots Of Photos

Just heard on the news something about possible recall for the explorer and carbon monoxide poisoning. One PD has completely stopped using them. That might change the game a bit. Won't affect civilian Taurus one iota. Sedan sales are down across all segments, across all brands. 2018 or 2019 are the...

And Explorer Police Utility outsold the Taurus Police Interceptor last year. Even with the bad publicity on the alleged carbon monoxide leaks.

Re: Chinese 2016 Taurus Article With Lots Of Photos

Yes, there's a 2018 Taurus in North America. Probably the last civilian Taurus. Afterwards, like the Crown Victoria before it, plans are to relegate it to police fleet only with 2019 MY. With demand still high for the Explorer, a planned redesign for MY 2020, with a Lincoln variant planned for MY 20...

Re: Meguiars Compound

I saw a recommendation for I forget if it was #20 or #21 but yeah it sounds like you put that down before waxing to help protect the paint. Either one by themselves will do a great job of protecting the paint. A coat of wax over them just adds a layer of additional protection, and can add some dept...

Re: Meguiars Compound

Both Collinite are excellent. If you ever get tempted to try a Meguiars Mirror Glaze Professional product, No. 20 Polymer Sealant or No 21 Synthetic Sealant go on easily, either by hand or with an orbital polisher. In either case you can't go wrong, and topping either one with either Collinite wax w...

Yes, what else?...lol

Remember, the Crown Victoria met a similar fate.
Could be fleet only. Could be dropped entirely. More than half off the Police Interceptors sold are Explorers, so it's anybody's guess at this point.

Re: Chinese 2016 Taurus Article With Lots Of Photos

Personally, I'd love to see this here. But, if the current issue of Automotive News is to be believed, North American Taurus stays the same for 2016 and 2017, and then gets dropped from the line-up completely. Large sedan segment sales, for all automakers, has been dropping, with sales going to cros...

Re: 2016 Ford Taurus Preview

How about a Gen-7 Taurus for the US? Looks like a borrowed chassis, less weight and pretty much nothing like the China version. Interesting speculation at the very least. newcarannouncements.com/2016-ford-taurus/ If there's a Gen 7 Taurus, it absolutely will be a version of the Taurus debuted in Ch...

Lets not panic yet....Other articles mention the US SPEC design and release date is scheduled for late 2015 with sales 2016. If it gets killed off not much we can do but keep positive for now. If it comes, and again, that's an if, it won't be late 2015. One) it has not had a North American introduc...

Re: 2016 Ford Taurus Preview

Sorry to disappoint all of you, but this is probably not coming here.

In fact, depending on how they want to address the police market, there may not be a Taurus in a few years.
