2005 Ford Taurus Review
"Due to be dropped from the Ford lineup during the model year, Taurus sedans and wagons soldier on with fewer trim levels for 2005. Taurus comes in SE and SEL model groupings; LX and SES versions have been dropped. All have automatic transmission and a 3.0-liter V6. The engine makes 153 hp in standard form; a 201-hp dohc version is optional on SEL. Antilock brakes are available. Wagons have rear disc brakes vs. drums for sedans. Depending on model, Taurus sedans offer a 3-passenger front bench seat for 6-passenger capacity or two front buckets for 5-passenger capacity. Wagons do the same, but add a standard 2-passenger rear-facing 3rd-row seat for up to 8-passenger capacity. Traction control and head-and-torso front side airbags are available. Mercury sells a retrimmed Taurus as the Sable."
