General | Latest Info

For several years now, Taurus has been Yankee entry in best-selling-car-in-America war. It's like WWF, but for cars. Each year, Taurus jumps into the ring to duke it out with the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. Goal? To earn that prestigious title of No. 1, or best-selling car in America. In hopes of putting Taurus on top for 2000, Ford put its main contender through the automotive equivalent of Tae-Bo class, endowing it with better safety, styling, power and suspension. The current Taurus' main feature is Ford's Personal Safety System. It's collection of components that allow car to more fully understand the nature of crash and factors in whether or not seatbelts are in use. With the system, dual-stage airbags inflate at two different rates, depending on the situation. Additionally, safety belts are equipped with pre-tensioners that are designed to help reduce the risk of force-related injuries in crash. The Taurus also become first car in North America to offer power-adjustable brake and accelerator pedals, allowing drivers of smaller stature to move pedals toward their feet, rather than moving seat too close to the steering wheel. Last year's styling changes were a welcome improvement. All exterior panels on the 2001 Taurus are carry over from last year. We give '01 Taurus high marks in the ride and handling department. On the road, car transmits truly usable feedback to the wheel, letting the driver know what is happening with tires. The Taurus has compliant suspension with excellent rebound shock valving for spirited canyon driving, yet without harshness that can render cross-country driving unenjoyable. Drive Taurus into turn, prod the throttle and the car responds in a predictable manner. Yet on highway, passengers are treated to a comfortably smooth ride. 2001 Taurus powertrains include 3. 0-liter Vulcan and 3. 0-liter Duratec V6s. The main difference between the two engines is the cylinder heads. The Base Vulcan has two valves per cylinder, while the Duratec has four. The four-valve motor makes 200 horsepower at 5650 rpm and 200 foot-pounds of torque at 4 400 rpm. The base engine makes do with 155 horsepower at 4 900 rpm and 185 foot-pounds at 3950 rpm. All Tauri get four-speed automatic. Both Vulcan and Duratec engines meet low-emission vehicle standards in California and Northeastern states. Taurus has always been good value and now it's better than ever. And with the number of 2000s out there, car is apparently a popular American-nameplate alternative to the Accord or Camry. Especially when price is factored into the picture.

Why Use CarGurus?

The 2001 Ford Taurus represents the second year of the model's redesign. As such, few changes were introduce. Antilock brakes were offered as an option for LX and SE trims and come standard on SEL and SES. Also available on higher-end trims were a few luxury touches, like leather bucket seats and power-adjustable pedals. As the newest incarnation of Ford's long-time bestselling car, '01 Taurus had some history to live up to. Fortunately, drivers and reviewers alike respond well to redesign. More angular, broader-shoulder exterior provides more room in the cabin and more cargo space in the trunk; this was the key advantage the 2001 Taurus enjoyed over other midsize cars, even the more-expensive Volkswagen Passat. On other hand, '01 Ford Taurus wasn't muscle car, sports car, luxury car, or anything else particularly fun. What it did offer, though, was reliable, solid family transportation at an affordable price. Not too long on power, Taurus's base engine was a 155-horsepower V6. Higher-end trims, though, offer a 200-horsepower DOHC V6. Fuel efficiency was middle-of-road 20 mpg city, 28 mpg highway.
