According to motortrend, once Ford's mainstay vehicle, the Taurus was for years America's best-selling car. Now, however, as it approaches the end of its life cycle, the Taurus' glory days are long past. It's being succeeded by the larger Ford Five Hundred and, beginning in fall 2005, by the somewhat smaller Ford Fusion sedan, as well. The Five Hundred is a superior car, and we expect the Fusion (based on the laudable Mazda6) will be, too. For those who still want a Taurus--primarily car-rental agencies and other fleet buyers--Ford is still making them, in just two trim levels, the base SE and more deluxe SEL. The station wagon, however, will be dropped after the '05 model year, and Mercury's Taurus twin, the Sable, has already ended production.

In the Taurus' final year, Ford is de-emphasizing retail sales of the car, so dealers might not have significant stocks of the car on hand. The second-generation Taurus launched for the 1996 model year with a dramatic body style that polarized opinion from Day One. Ford took the ovoid theme to the limit, with the curvaceous, porpoise-shaped sheetmetal festooned with circles. Facing criticism, Ford squared off some curves, most noticeably with the rear window, for 2000. The still-sleek, sculpted shape makes the car appear smaller than it is. You may be surprised to learn that the interior and trunk volume edge out those of the seemingly larger Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry, with key passenger dimensions overlapping these tough competitors'. Given the controversial styling, and subsequent expensive restyle, it no coincidence that the new Ford Five Hundred's design, clean and plain outside but rich and roomy inside, is very different from that of the Taurus. Once a radical design, the lame-duck Taurus now looks dated.
