The Taurus X featured a grill with three horizontal, chrome bars with center mounted blue oval. At the time, the Taurus X also offered an Eddie Bauer trim-line, similar to that of the Ford Explorer. The vehicle, like its predecessor, features three rows of seats with seating for seven. The Taurus X used the Ford D3 platform and an updated powertrain, which included the discontinuation of the CVT transmission previously used by the Freestyle, as well as the 3.0 L V6 in favor of the newly developed six- speed 6F automatic as well as the all-new 3.5 L Duratec 35 V6 which put out 263 hp (196 kW) at 6250 rpm.[4] The vehicle also received new power options, including power-folding second-row seats and a power lift gate. As of 2009, the Ford Flex has replaced the Freestyle as a full size CUV. The Flex also replaced the Freestar minivan simultaneously. Models: SEL: The SEL was the base model Ford Taurus X offered for a year (2008–2009). It had cloth seating, optional Ford SYNC, Bluetooth, and alloy wheels. Eddie Bauer Edition: Following the other SUV's in Ford's lineup, the EB Edition included two-tone unique leather seating, standard Ford SYNC, and standard Pueblo Gold Metallic two-tone exterior paint. It was only offered for 2008. Limited: Serving as the top-of-the-line Ford Taurus X, the Limited offered all the features of the EB Edition plus chrome-plated alloy wheels and monotone paint. It had 18" tires and wheels. Like the Freestyle, the Taurus X featured what Ford describes as "command seating," seating with a higher H-point, to increase driver visibility and ease of entry and exit.

it came in 2 flavors 2WD and AWD~ look at your controls~


Slide under it and look to see if it has a rear differential, if it is there then it is an AWD if not then it is a FWD.

Also, your VIN# stamped on the upper left of dash or elsewhere on the SUV will reveal the specs. ---OR---- Just look on the back and you will see the "AWD" badging on right side below the "SEL" badge (See pic below).
