2009 Ford Taurus X Review
This review was written when the 2009 Ford Taurus X was new.
With its good power, convenient interior features and great crash test scores, the Ford Taurus X is a good choice for those who put substance over style.
Introduced in 2008, the Taurus X replaced the Freestyle in Ford's lineup and shares its styling cues with the Taurus sedan, which itself replaces the Ford Five Hundred. Confused yet? Despite all the replacement and name changes, one constant is that the Taurus X is a good car. Most reviewers say it's a safe and comfortable crossover wagon with decent power and good room for both passengers and cargo.
Reviewers generally find the Taurus X to be a good value. Its sticker price, says Car and Driver, "puts it in the same territory as the GMC Acadia/Saturn Outlook twins as one of the few relatively affordable, full-size, seven-passenger crossovers on the market."
The Taurus X is available in SEL, Eddie Bauer and Limited trim levels.
Ford recently introduced the Ford Advantage Plan, where they'll make your payments for up to 12 months if you lose your paycheck. Check out Ford's page for details and click here to see how it stacks up against competitors' similar programs.
