Ford boss confirms new Taurus for 2009Enlarge Photo
Over the next couple of years Ford will be updating its entire lineup and one of these new models will be a revamped Taurus, which Mulally has revealed will arrive in the "next year or so." He also alluded that the new car will be much better than the current model, reports The Detroit News. The new Taurus is the Taurus that originally should have been launched, he explained.
This time around the car’s development is probably being spread across the Blue Oval’s global empire. Mulally told reporters Ford’s worldwide resources should help the carmaker as regions adopt common safety and environmental requirements. We’ve already seen how the current model has benefited significantly in safety tests thanks to expertise from Volvo, and the new model is only set to improve on this.
