Power for the front-wheel-drive Taurus SE comes from a 3.5-liter DOHC Duratec V6 engine, which develops 263 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque. The V6 links to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy numbers check in at 18/28 mpg. Standard safety features include Ford's AdvanceTrac electronic stability control and the Safety Canopy System, which includes side-curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. Other safety features include traction control and antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist.
Inside, the Taurus SE comes well-equipped with such standard features as cloth upholstery, a 6-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, a 6-speaker audio system and power windows and door locks.

The 2012 Ford Taurus SEL AWD comes equipped with the automaker's fully automatic Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system, which monitors wheel slippage and instantly sends torque to the wheels that need it most. It channels power from a 3.5-liter DOHC Duratec V6 engine, which produces 263 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque. The V6 mates to a 6-speed SelectShift Automatic with a manual-shift mode and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The EPA estimates fuel economy numbers of 17/25 mpg. Standard safety features include Ford's AdvanceTrac electronic stability control and side-curtain airbags. Traction control and antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist also come standard.
Outside, the Taurus SEL AWD displays such exterior features as a power-dome hood, a tri-bar grille with a lower trapezoidal opening, automatic projector-beam headlights, twin chrome exhaust tips and 18-inch aluminum wheels. In addition, the heated power folding side mirrors include new integrated blind-spot mirrors for 2012. Inside, the Taurus SEL AWD comes equipped with such standard features as premium cloth upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. A message center, which also comes standard, includes a trip computer and a compass. The cabin seats 5 passengers, with a 6-way power-adjustable driver's seat and a rear seat that splits 60/40 and folds down. The 6-speaker AM/FM audio system includes SiriusXM satellite radio.

The 2012 Ford Taurus Limited AWD comes equipped with Ford's All-Wheel Drive system, which helps improve traction and handling on all types of road surfaces. It automatically sends power to the wheels with the most traction when it detects slippage. Power comes from a 3.5-liter DOHC Duratec V6 engine, which generates 263 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque. The V6 links to a 6-speed SelectShift Automatic with a manual-shift mode and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Fuel economy numbers check in at 17/25 mpg. Standard safety features include Ford's AdvanceTrac electronic stability control and side-curtain airbags. Traction control and antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist also come standard.
The well-appointed cabin includes such luxury-oriented standard features as perforated leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front bucket seats with memory settings for the driver, a wood-and-leather-trimmed steering wheel, ambient lighting and woodgrain trim. Ford also includes a rear-view camera, a premium AM/FM audio system with a 6-CD changer and the Sync system, which integrates voice-activated phone and entertainment systems. Dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, remote keyless entry, a 60/40-split rear seat and a message center with a trip computer and compass, as well as power windows and door locks, are among the other standard features. Options include Multi-Contour front seats with Active Motion, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, an upgraded 390-watt Sony audio system and a navigation system. Outside, the Taurus Limited AWD displays such exterior features as a power-dome hood, a tri-bar grille with a lower trapezoidal opening, automatic projector-beam headlights and twin chrome exhaust tips. In addition, the heated chrome-accented power folding side mirrors include new integrated blind-spot mirrors for 2012. The Taurus Limited rides on 19-inch chrome-clad wheels.

The sport-oriented Ford Taurus SHO AWD receives a number of unique exterior features that distinguish it from other Taurus trims, including a rear spoiler, HID headlights and an electrochromatic driver's side mirror, as well as unique 19-inch premium 5-spoke aluminum wheels. Other exterior features include a tri-bar grille with a lower trapezoidal opening, a power-dome hood, dual chrome exhaust tips and integrated blind-spot mirrors, new for 2012. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged, direct-injection 3.5-liter DOHC EcoBoost V6, which delivers 365 horses and 350 lb-ft of torque. The V6, which requires premium fuel, links to the 6-speed SelectShift Automatic with paddle shifters. Fuel economy numbers check in at 17/25 mpg. Standard safety features include Ford's AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, traction control and antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist. The SHO also comes equipped with Ford's All-Wheel Drive system, which helps improve traction and handling on all types of road surfaces. It automatically sends power to the wheels with the most traction when it detects slippage.
Inside, unique features for the SHO include aluminum pedals, push-button start, an upgraded leather-wrapped steering wheel and premium leather upholstery with suede inserts. The front seats feature 10-way power adjustment with memory settings for the driver, and the rear seat splits 60/40 and folds down. Ford includes its voice-activated Sync system, which integrates phone and entertainment systems, as well as a premium AM/FM audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio and a 6-CD changer. Other standard features include a rear-view camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting and a message center with a trip computer and compass. The MyKey system, which gives owners the option to set limits on speed and audio volume when younger drivers take the wheel, also comes standard. Options include Multi-Contour front seats with Active Motion, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, an upgraded 390-watt Sony audio system and a navigation system.
