2016 Ford Taurus redesign
The 2016 Ford Taurus will be next-generation of this brand and it will be built on new platform called CD4. Other Ford’s vehicle is using this concept. It is Mondeo, so we expect many similarities with these two cars. Ford Taurus 2016 will be wider and longer than before. Wheelbase will be stretched, as well as rear overhang On the other hand, use of the new materials will make new 2016 Taurus easier, so it will have better fuel consumption. Current, sixth generation was built on Volvo platform and it hasn’t been changed since 2009, when it was launched. Sligh modifications were made in materials used for building, where company decided to go with cheaper variant, steel, instead of lighter and better for fuel consumption. Now, Ford is about to fix this mistake. Aluminum will be used, and the fuel economy improvements will be visible. Old cars weight was measured at 4455 pounds, and for example, new Ford Fusion with front drive weights 3526 pounds.
