Relegated mainly to fleet sales now, the Ford Taurus is nearing the end of it's production life. 6.7 million in sales is something Ford can be proud of. Too bad the replacement (the 500) is such a disappointment.
The car that proved America can build a stylish, reliable sedan, the Taurus achieved best-selling car in the US for four years. The style was way ahead of it's time, and like the Chrysler 300 of today proved that design is one of the major factors in sales success. Literally the car that saved Ford, there looks to be no final "special edition" planned. Sad for such a historically important vehicle. Goodbye Taurus, you were a friend to both families and enthusiasts (in SHO form) alike. Not many cars can say that.
