The 2017 Ford Taurus is a great choice for car shoppers who want the extra space that the Taurus offers over its smaller counterparts. But a roomy interior isn’t the only thing that sets the Taurus apart from other vehicles — it also has a variety of powerful engines that make driving in the Ford Taurus a truly enjoyable experience. Take a look below to learn about the different engines that are available in the 2017 Ford Taurus.
Standard engine in the 2017 Ford Taurus
The 2017 Ford Taurus comes standard with a 3.5L V6 engine with 288 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque. The Taurus may be a full-size sedan, but it’s not sluggish like other vehicles out there. It packs a bunch when you push the pedal down, and you’re even still getting up to 27 MPG on the highway with the standard engine, so you’re not sacrificing on efficiency either.
Available engines in the 2017 Ford Taurus
There are two more available engines in the 2017 Ford Taurus, both of which provide a pretty distinct experience from each other. One is a 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 that will give you a more fuel efficient ride at 29 MPG on the highway. Even with its smaller size and increased efficiency, you’ll still be getting a good deal of power from this I-4 engine at 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque.
The second is a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with an incredible boost in power over the standard V6 engine. This one comes with 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque for a truly powerful acceleration and sporty drive. All three engines come paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, but the 3.5L V6 specifically also comes with a set of paddle shifters, adding the choice for a more hands-on driving experience.
