Ford Taurus Auto Transport
The Ford Taurus is Ford’s 4th model in their car lineup, according to their website, and is currently sold in four different packages: the SE, the SEL, the Limited and the SHO. The SE is on the cheap end, while the SHO is a performance-based vehicle capable of much more horsepower and torque than the others as well as featuring different interior and more options – for a much higher price.
The SE features a 3.5L DOHC V6 engine, a powerhouse engine as far as regular Ford cars go – it’s got more power than the Fiesta, Focus or Fusion, hence the base price of $25,555. But it comes with some cool bells and whistles standard: six-speed automatic transmission, single-zone climate control, MP3 jack, ice-blue interior lighting, and much more. Optional upgrades include an upgrade to the Sync system and a remote-start system, among others. The SEL is a bit more powerful, still featuring a 3.5L V6 engine but also coming with dual-zone climate control, optional ambient lighting, a push-button start system (also optional), six-speed automatic transmission, a messenger center with trip computer and compass, and more. The price goes up, however, to $27,755 MSRP. The Limited comes in at $32,155 and, like the SE and SEL, features 18/28 mpg (city/highway) and the Sync system, a rear-facing camera, back-up assist, memory settings for individual climate control, and upgrades featuring auto-high-beam and rain-sensing wipers, heated front-row (and second-row) seating, push-button start, and more. The SHO, as we stated, is Ford’s performance Taurus, featuring a faster engine which only gets 15/25 mpg, which – considering the powerful V8 engine in it – is definitely understandable. The SHO is meant to be a luxury-performance car, featuring high torque and horsepower as well as some cool interior features including the Sync system, heated seats, push-start technology, and much more.
The real beauty of the Taurus – at least for auto shipping customers – lies in the fact that the design of the vehicle, while it has changed drastically over the years, has still remained at much the same size and weight (maybe adding a few pounds and inches, but who’s going to notice in the auto shipping world?). The Taurus was introduced in 1986 and is currently the 4th-oldest brand in the company’s stable of cars, which means that auto shipping companies have plenty of experience with the Ford Taurus. No auto shipping company that is actually legitimate would add additional weight charges or oversized vehicle fees, as it’s considered a standard car – it’s not the size of a pickup truck or large van, it’s a car, and every auto shipping company will treat it as such.
