Ford Taurus History
The Taurus nameplate dates back to 1986 when it was one of the popular sedans on the market. Over the years Ford took chances in the design department, some of which didn’t fare well. Around 2005 the Taurus had an identity crisis when the automaker decided to bring back the Five Hundred nameplate. What was supposed to be an improvement over the Taurus turned out to be a dud for the brand and not even the nostalgia of the name could keep this sedan alive. The Five Hundred was retired after just two years on the road, and the Taurus was back inn 2008.
