Photochop: 2010 Ford Taurus

photochop 2010 ford taurus

Not long ago, persons unknown snapped a picture of a full-size clay model of Ford's next Taurus, taken deep within Ford's secret hilltop fortress (unleashing the dogs of law on the websites that published it). Today, we bring you a computer rendering by photochopper Joshua Byrne, who riffed on the spy shot to give us an idea what the 2010 Taurus (yup there's that date again) will look like. Take it away Jason: "Design wise, the next generation Taurus blends in elements of Ford Europe's Kinetic design theme with a watered down version of the Ford Interceptor concept car, albeit looking a bit Camry'ish in the side profile. The three bar grill has evolved into something less Gillette razor-like, with less chrome and more detailing. Overall the 2010 Taurus is nothing too radical, but it should have the appeal that the current car doesn't." Like it wouldn't. [Note to Andrei: You're still The Man.]

    WOW...it warms my heart to hear all the Taurus love! So...if so many of you like this AND even the current model, why oh why isn't it moving!? I also believe it to be the best value out their today for a family sedan. In fact, nothing comes closein the price range. I expect the eco-boost (My God i wish they kept the other name!) in this car and right away. I get the feeling they want no more failures with this next change.

    Nice, but looks like a Volvo

    It looks really good so far. Much, much nicer than the current model, which is just too bland.

    Nice job, Ford. Please resist the temptation to make the car too big and too fat. Make sure all the interior stuff looks and feels good. Buy your switchgear from Audi's suppliers...and charge the extra 30 bucks for it. BTW, the interior door handles must feel solid. Look to the MKZ as the feel NOT to replicate...
