2018 Taurus Engine Options
If you're the kind of person who wants to get the most efficiency and power out of your vehicle, you're going to love the 2018 Ford Taurus. The standard engine for the 2018 Taurus is a 3.5L V6 that is capable of cranking out up to 288 horsepower! In addition to being powerful, this engine is also able to provide you with the fuel efficiency that you need in your vehicle with an EPA-estimated rating of 27 miles per gallon when driving on the highway. Because it has twin independent variable camshaft timing, the 3.5L V6 can control when the valves open and close in order to maximize its overall performance, and give you the ride of a lifetime.
Those looking for a little more kick out of their engine can find it in the available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6. This beast of an engine living under the hood of the Taurus is able to produce an eye-popping 365 horsepower and a whopping 350 lb-ft of torque! In order to harness all this raw power, all you need to do is sit down in the driver's seat and press the accelerator for instand acceleration and performance that only Ford can provide. The 3.5L EcoBoost® combines two different engine technologies, turbocharging and direct injection, in order to provide such amazing performance.
2018 Taurus Technology
Think the 2018 Taurus is all brawn and no brain? Think again. The 2018 Taurus comes with a multitude of both standard and available technologies that make driving bother easier and more convenient. The available Adaptive Cruise Control feature, for example, is able to utilize sensors located at the front of the vehicle to monitor the distance between you and the car in front of you. When you select a pre-set distance that you would like to keep between cars, your Taurus will automatically alter its speed in order to maintain that distance.
Another available technology on the 2018 Taurus is the Blind Spot Information System®. This innovative technology uses radar located on the rear panels of the Taurus to monitor the areas around your vehicle. If it detects another vehicle approaching and entering your blind spot, it will alert you with an indicator light located on the corresponding side-view mirror. While it's always important to physically check your blind spots yourself, the Blind Spot Information System is a great way to help ensure your family's safety while attempting to change lanes.
