As you know, Ford’s plan to cut all of the sedans from its U.S. lineup is almost finished. The upcoming 2022 Ford Taurus is one of those sedans that are not available in the United States anymore. However, this model continued to live in other parts of the world. Taurus is especially popular in China and Blue Oval manufacturer will focus on Asia in 2022. The new model is produced by Changan Ford in the brand’s Hangzhou facility.
It is a sedan that manages good sales, it looks stylish and its interior is very modern. In our opinion, Taurus is one of the best-looking models in its respective segment. As you probably know, Taurus is in its seventh generation. This model created a path to models such as Lincoln Continental. As for Asia, Taurus is basically a Ford Fusion (Mondeo) model with a longer wheelbase.
The forthcoming 2022 Ford Taurus will continue with improvements. However, the new model will receive minor updates. The Taurus sedan looks very stylish and attractive, so this model does not need significant changes at the moment. The front part comes with a shield-like five-bar grille looks more prominent and the headlamps are looking more modern.
To the sides, this model will gain polished 19-inch wheels, chrome accents on the doors, and more pronounced lines. As for the rear fascia, Taurus comes with impressive multi-piece LED taillights. While the tail lamps will remain, a bar that connects them will gain more chrome trims. Even the exhaust tips will wear more chrome now.
The same story continues inside the 2022 Ford Taurus. This stylish sedan will gain more chrome accents on the inside as well. That includes various accents on the dashboard and doors. The cabin is modern enough and it is full of the latest high-tech and safety systems.
Taurus also offers some premium stuff such as leather upholstery and a panoramic sunroof. We think that everything looks elegant and stylish so Ford will provide really minor updates. The seating layout remains intact, but the new model will surely arrive with more standard equipment.
2022 Taurus Specs
At this point, it seems like the 2022 Ford Taurus could get a new engine option. However, we don’t know if the new engine will be standard and optional. The current model is available with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder gasoline unit. This engine delivers 240 horsepower. A new engine means more power or improved fuel efficiency.
Whatever happens, this change will be more than welcome. Some reports are suggesting the return of the 3.5-liter V6 engine. Not so long ago, this drivetrain powered the Taurus SHO high-performance variant and potent V6 generated almost 350 horsepower.
2022 Ford Taurus Release Date and Specs
The price of the all-new 2022 Ford Taurus will probably remain intact. This stylish sedan will continue to cost over $30,000. Some reports are suggesting potential changes in the trim level lineup, but Titanium Plus will remain the range-topping trim level. As we said, Taurus is sold in China and this sedan will go on sale later in 2021.
