Yeah I don't like scion either.
Andy Rogers Apr 22, 2011
Same here There are personal reasons too, but I just don't like Scions in general
Victor Takhanov Apr 22, 2011
Lambo badge lol. And I actually do prefer the ft86 with a Toyota badge.
Paul Heany Apr 22, 2011
Good question, Carson...why, Ismael?
Daniel Hernandez Apr 21, 2011
I cant wait for this engine to come with the new focus, thats a hell of an engine and im not a ford fan
Andy Rogers Apr 21, 2011
@Victor Would you rather have a Lamborghini under a VW or SEAT badge or under a Lambo badge? Answer that
Damon Franklin Apr 21, 2011
I hope the Taurus SHO looks good
Brady Fereday Apr 21, 2011
Ya a rear drive boxer engine scion sign me up that thing is going to be a monster
Patrick Schalk Apr 21, 2011
I know it's a good lookin car. I like it a lot. But from a marketing standpoint it does matter what badge it has. I hope It does well though. It's a sweet little whip
Luis Lujan Apr 21, 2011
Go to Japan if you want to talk like that. Don't do it on a Ford article, you non-Patriots.
Victor Takhanov Apr 21, 2011
if the car already looks so great, does the badge even matter?
Andy Rogers Apr 21, 2011
That's been a rumor for awhile now. Even Toyota themselves called BS on it. I hope that's still true
Patrick Schalk Apr 21, 2011
Off topic, but does anyone remember the FT86 Concept that Subaru and Toyota did? Just read that it's gonna wear the Scion badge. Not good news.
Joshua Diamond Apr 27, 2011
It looks like a jeep
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Apr 24, 2011
That looks really awesome! In my opinion it would look great in black, with black rims. And of course with a V8!
Matt A Knott Apr 24, 2011
It's starting to look like the mustang.
Shawn Robinson Apr 22, 2011
Looks like a bulky mustang :(
Michael Nembhard Apr 22, 2011
Ha ha a what? Thunder...
Thaddeus Wade Apr 22, 2011
Gah... I thought it was a concept for the Ford Thundercougarfalconbird. :(
Ori Haviv Apr 22, 2011
If the new mustang and the forte had a baby. It kind of resembles this lol
Ori Haviv Apr 22, 2011
Who ever sees a BMW look to this needs to take a closer look at BMW again.
Gregory Lanham Apr 21, 2011
Stephen I agree 100% it's stupid now
Chayton Garverick Apr 21, 2011
@ Stephen Ishard I agree TOTALLY!
Stephen Ishard Apr 21, 2011
Ewww I like the old one more
Andy Rogers Apr 21, 2011
Never cared for the Taurus before, but this one interests me
Andy Kleschick Apr 21, 2011
Definitely see a mustang meets BMW 6 ( or 7 series?) in the grille
Anthony Isola Apr 21, 2011
It's s lancer falcon stang...
Michael Riley Apr 21, 2011
bigger Kia forte? maybe?
Andrew Mullin Apr 21, 2011
Haha it looks angry!
Braden Duke Apr 21, 2011
The front actually kinda looks like the new BMW 5series
Joey Beckham Apr 21, 2011
The headlights and fenders have a lot of lancer in them
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 21, 2011
It does have the traits of a mustang
Patrick Schalk Apr 21, 2011
It looks a lot more like the Falcon that was on here a couple months ago. I don't know if I like it : /
Gregory Lanham Apr 21, 2011
Loved the car until they made this one it's just the xf with a v4 I'll take the 11 instead
Taylor J. Blake Apr 21, 2011
An open mouthed mustang
Adam Zarytsky Apr 21, 2011
Looks aggressive, but at the same time dopey for some reason
Brian Connelly Apr 21, 2011
Take away the red panel between the two grills and it will look like the Audi grill
Michael Palazzo Apr 21, 2011
looks more aggressive
Description: This engine will produce 237-horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque, and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The SHO, on the other hand, will continue to sport the same 365-horsepower, twin-tu...

v6 twin turbo will be pretty cool and fun to drive.
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 22, 2011
@Paul cuz they want to look cool with their 'car made for the future'
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 22, 2011
@Paul cuz they want t
Christian Perez Apr 21, 2011
237hp on a V4?... That sounds good to me
Kenneth Williams Apr 21, 2011
Yea this car is pretty bulky. The whole center console inside is huge to but I font think it's in a bad way. I feel like I can lay my head on the console and still see out the windshield. (exaggeration of course)
Paul Affolter Apr 21, 2011
How are they already showing 3013?
Cory Wilhelm Apr 21, 2011
It only comes in awd option.
Brady Fereday Apr 21, 2011
Lol is it going to be front wheel drive is the question
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Apr 21, 2011
I know they have it but it is an extra option. I think people should buy it
Ken Madison Apr 21, 2011
Stick optional please? Or at least one of the fast and crisp shifting flappy paddle boxes?
Anthony Noon Apr 21, 2011
Yea but the car weights over 2 tons. That's whats sucks about it.
Colby Katzberg Apr 21, 2011
This sounds pretty sick, almost 400hp with paddle shifters, what an improvement from the grandpa cars they used to be.
Gregory Lanham Apr 21, 2011
Yea they have paddle shifters
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Apr 21, 2011
Put on some paddle shifters and this sounds like a fun car
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 23, 2011
@Ishmael yea everythings starting to become digital now like in the LFA
Kenneth Williams Apr 22, 2011
@Ishmael. The tach is digital and you can choose to display engine temp, gas level or the tach or a combo of the 3
Stephen Ishard Apr 21, 2011
Looks nice but the my ford thing works fine just bad with song names haha
Andy Rogers Apr 21, 2011
Pretty good Never really cared if an interior is good though as long as it isn't a car that has Korean boringness with Italian pieces-falling-off-ness
Ian Richard Hendry Apr 21, 2011
That looks bad. You poor guys.
Luis Lujan Apr 21, 2011
From this angle it looks like the light control knob is mounted to the steering wheel. I was going to say it's getting out of control, but never mind.
Gregory Lanham Apr 21, 2011
The only this I hate is the new speedometer
Michael Palazzo Apr 21, 2011
the center looks similar to Aston Martins, I like
Gregory Lanham Apr 22, 2011
Spencer yes they were really looking for cargo space the trunk is HUGE i can fit like 5-6 people with enough room for a mini fridge
Spencer Peirce Apr 22, 2011
Yeah I actually like the front end of this but you're right the back end is pretty large. If they would have trimmed it a bit and pulled the rear bumper in (like a foot lol) it would round it out nicely. Maybe they were going for cargo space?
Tom Franquelli Apr 22, 2011
I love the front of the current one, but the rear is a let-down...and they aren't changing it. Well, they're not just making it for me. :p
Andy Rogers Apr 21, 2011
I don't know if I like the back or not
Victor Takhanov Apr 21, 2011
This some how looks better than the current Taurus from the back
Kenneth Williams Apr 21, 2011
Pic effects were intentional dude
Luis Lujan Apr 21, 2011
Taken with a 35mm disposable from Walgreens.
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 21, 2011
The back reminds me of some Lincoln
Cody Paulrevere Johnston Apr 21, 2011
This car truly makes me smile
Chris O'Brien Apr 21, 2011
she's got a phat ass.
Michael Turner May 06, 2011
The front end looks like a Ford Contour. Not good. The rear looks great.
Ryan Todd Apr 22, 2011
I don't see mustang....
Law Patrickus Apr 22, 2011
Something nice and classy out of good ol americe
Ori Haviv Apr 22, 2011
Mustang headlights forsure
Gregory Lanham Apr 21, 2011
I see 200 in the grill
Serkan Sare Apr 21, 2011
Little bit of Toyota tundra?!?
Andy Rogers Apr 21, 2011
I don't see any Mustang, but I can see sort of how you guys get that
Gregory Lanham Apr 21, 2011
Always and will love this grille compared to the black plastic one
George Rust Apr 21, 2011
I can see the family resemblance of the Mustang in the headlights.
Cristian Hernandez Apr 21, 2011
Thata what I thoughts
Michael Palazzo Apr 21, 2011
I like the first pic better, black grille
Michael Turner May 06, 2011
The black plastic around the shifter looks cheap.
Zamiyaad Kausmally Apr 23, 2011
@Clayton I'm selling a pair of BMW badges for only $25 hurry!! Or they'll sell out really quick
Gregory Lanham Apr 22, 2011
@Chayton the only downhill was in 2000-2005,2008,2013 the only nice ones were 1989-1999,2010-2011
Chayton Garverick Apr 21, 2011
The Taurus has gone downhill in the past couple of years (2009 - 20--
Ryan Chamberlain Apr 21, 2011
yeah cale doesn't like anything that doesn't have a BMW emblem .....troll
Andy Rogers Apr 21, 2011
@Cale You wouldn't say that if this was in a BMW. Especially considering you have a BMW badge as your current profile pic
Ryan Todd Apr 21, 2011
Y do they keep deleting my comments..all I said was nice but would look better in black with the wood ...
Luis Lujan Apr 21, 2011
Touchpad controls!! Thank you, Ford. Champions.
Michael Turner May 06, 2011
It really looks good from this angle.
Luis Lujan Apr 21, 2011
I will be seeing this in person on Saturday. NYIAS, son!!
Josh Sutton Apr 21, 2011
Overall shape of it seems like it's trying to mimic a 300C...good luck with that.
