2000 Ford Taurus Overview

As a complete restyle of Ford's best-selling car, the 2000 Ford Taurus made quite an impact on the marketplace. The car's new look, more angular than the egg-shaped Taurus of the '90s, provided much-needed headroom and cargo space. Still, the overall shape of the 2000 Taurus remained sleek and streamlined.

An interior redesign also freshened the Taurus's appeal. Facing competition from midsize imports like the Honda Accord and the Nissan Altima, Ford decided to go a bit more upscale with the Taurus cabin. And it worked: The '00 Taurus definitely has more of a luxury feel than most of the sedans at its price point.

The '00 Ford Taurus was powered by a 155-horsepower V6 engine. Both sedan and wagon body styles were offered, and four trims were available: the bare-bones LX, the higher-end SE, the SEL, and the SES.
