Hello, first time posting here.
Which transmission comes with the 3.5 V6 NA (non turbo)?

I believe it's the 6F50 but different sources provide conflicting results.
Also, if possible, please list model year reversions or any differences.
Thanks.

Easiest way to tell for sure is to check the transmission code letter on your manufacturing sticker. It's normally the 6F50. 6F55 is usually for EcoBoost (SHO) models.

Yes, I know about doing that.
Though it's difficult in researching certain components online for a vehicle you do not own. The only practical source is Wikipedia.
Rockauto is a great website, though they have just about everything minus the entire transmission or engine.

Anyway, thanks for the info.

Was the Taurus changed for the 2016 model? I read something about it receiving the front end of a Fusion, and undergoing some other changes.
Thanks.

Not to my knowledge. There's the 2010-2012 and the 2013-2019 facelift. Both use the same engine/trans combos.

The EPAS rack seems to be a different model, starting at 2016

Computer probably won't except older ones, though totally just a guess.
