Click above for high-res live images of the 2010 Ford Taurus

We exhaustively told you about the new 2010 Ford Taurus last night, but we've just seen the car in person, sat in it and left our fingerprints on all the shiny parts. Make no mistake, the new Taurus is an entirely different vehicle than the one it replaces, at least in terms of looks. It also feels like a more expensive car, with soft-touch materials, high quality plastics and creamy leather everywhere. While rear seat accommodations are commodious, front seat passengers will feel snug as a bug sitting on either side of the tall center console.

We also got a chance to see a Taurus SEL, which is one trim level below the Limited model that we've previously seen. Bathed in beige and wearing a different wheel design, even this more base level model looked rich and inviting with a light-and-dark two-tone interior.

Oh, and while we didn't manage to grab a pic, the trunk is large enough to fit at least five dead bodies. Just saying.

Check out our original reveal post on the 2010 Ford Taurus and our new gallery of high-res live images below. Video of the live reveal has been added after the jump.

      Starting to look like the Mondeo, finally.
      • 6 Years Ago
      If I squint, I not only see Mondeo, but I actually see a silhouette of the original 1986 Taurus (not a bad thing, mind you; no, it isn't just because the new Taurus has four doors and a hatch like the original, but the side and rear designs look kind of similar).
      This is really a WINNER (and the current Taurus is actually quite reliable, so Toyota really doesn't have an advantage over Ford here)!
      By the way, I don't think Detroit will come out and win. I think FORD will come out and win with these kind of products.
      Now, where's the SHO?

      It's beautiful. Detroit has come out fighting and we're going to win.

        I'm pulling for Chrysler/Dodge as well. I really hope they make it.

      Another oversized POS from one of the big three!!!

      So I guess no Mercury Sable version this time, since Mercury will become a small car brand.

      • 6 Years Ago

      Nice...really nice...?some Volvo influence on the front end and hood? Like it.

      A++ For Ford they finally listened to the public and brought over some design cues from europe Ford's design language. I still don't like this car to be called Taurus. This car is too upscale for the Taurus name.

      Outstanding new car Ford! Love it. Beautiful grill and headlights. Much improved over the overly bold "3-bar" grill look. Really nice interior center console, dash, etc. I've owned 3 Fords and they have all been excellent cars. I would be proud to own the new Taurus.

      Very nice. It definitely has touches of the Ford Interceptor concept.
