How Does the 2015 Ford Taurus Compare to Other Large Sedans?

When properly equipped, the 2015 Taurus can tow 1,000 pounds.

Should I Buy the 2015 Ford Taurus?
If you're looking for a large sedan for your family, the seating comfort, child-safety seat configurability and massive trunk of the 2015 Ford Taurus make it an appealing option that's worth a test drive. But know that you'll be cramped in the front seat of this full-size car with limited visibility - and that the general interior build quality isn't great. Other 2015 large sedans may serve you better with more features and higher quality.
