7 Seater Cars – Ford Taurus X


Ford Taurus X among 7 seater Cars

We all know that Ford was the first company to manufacture a car. But do you know a 7 seater car that is manufactured by Ford? Taurus X is a 7 seater car from Ford. This particular car belongs to a category called crossover SUV. This car was first developed by Ford Motors in USA in the year 2005. Since then, this car has been famous in its category and can comfortably seat 6-7 people. This car came into existence more because of the lack of sufficient space for a big family. People used to cram inside a small hatchback which is supposed to be only for less than 5 people. Ever since these 7 seater cars have been rolled out to streets, all the medium and big families have begun to prefer this.

Styling of Ford Taurus X

Ford Taurus X which is among the few good 7 seater cars, implements a style of seating arrangement called the freestyle. In this arrangement, the 7 seats are laid out in 3 rows, such that the driver has the maximum visibility of both front and back view of road. And this arrangement also makes sure that entry and exit of the passengers are very smooth. With this arrangement, the car gets a higher H point which is always safe for the car. Ford Taurus was launched in order to replace its older competitor Taurus Station, and Taurus X did that job well.

Design Factors of Ford Taurus X

Ford Taurus X was a 7 seater car built on the concept of Ford D3. Ford Taurus X uses a Duratec V6 engine of capacity 3 liter and can output a maximum of 203 hp at 5750 rpm. Taurus implements the CVT technology (Continuously Variable Transmission) in its engine which makes it even more popular.

Taurus has many power options such as power folded seats and also provides power lift gates. Even though Taurus is no more in production against the other 7 seater cars, it comes out to be a great 7 seater car in the market even to this day. It will be a good choice if you decide to buy one, if at all you get a good deal out there in market. Having said that, it might be a little difficult for you to find a new Taurus in the Ford showroom. But for sure you’d find at least one of it somewhere in the local showroom, or in the online car store.
