About the Ford Taurus X
The Taurus X is part of a revamped lineup from Ford that also includes the return of the standard Ford Taurus as well as the Mercury Sable. In truth, though, the Taurus X is not a new vehicle (nor is the standard Taurus or the Sable, for that matter). It's a revamped Ford Freestyle, a crossover vehicle introduced in 2005.
After seeing disappointing sales for the Freestyle, which was a cross between an SUV and a wagon, Ford considered dropping the vehicle from the lineup. But someone in the company had a better idea. With sales of crossovers on the rise, Ford decided that an old name is more memorable (and easier to sell) than a new one, so the Freestyle received a name change, some significant upgrades, and voila! -- the 2008 Taurus X.
Among the upgrades for the Taurus X is a new 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 260 horsepower, up 57 horsepower from the previous year's Freestyle. Other features for the new Taurus X include standard AdvanceTrac traction control system, a Safety Canopy System, and an available Ford SYNC System.
The Taurus X is available as either a front-wheel-drive vehicle or with a new four-wheel-drive system. The seven-passenger vehicle has three rows of seats and an available power rear liftgate. A new Eddie Bauer Edition also is available.
