Drive Type:FWD/Front Wheel Drive
The 2013 Ford Taurus is new, though it isn’t all-new. It’s not a new generation, just the current generation at its peak. This latest Taurus has many significant changes for the 2013 model year, all good so far as we can see, from powertrain to interior to exterior, in that order. Three engines are available for the 2013 Taurus.
The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine has been updated for 2013 for improved fuel economy, increased power and lower emissions. It’s called TI-VCT, for Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing, a system that precisely times the valve openings to increase power, throttle response and fuel mileage, while reducing emissions. As a result, the 2013 Taurus gets an EPA-estimated 19/29 miles per gallon City/Highway with front-wheel drive, 18/26 mpg with all-wheel drive. The 3.5-liter V6 with Ti-VCT now makes 288 horsepower, a boost of 25 horsepower over the previous model.
Taurus Limited upgrades with perforated leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, rearview camera, heated memory mirrors, puddle lamps, 19-inch premium painted aluminum wheels, ambient lighting, cargo net, MyFordTouch with 8-inch center stack screen, color 4.2″ LCD instrument cluster screen, and power passenger seat.
