The Five Hundred was recently upgraded for the 2008 model year with more grunt under the hood, small exterior changes, and improved NVH levels.
The 2008-model Taurus X crossover will go on sale late this summer – replacing the Ford Freestyle – with the same design, powertrain and safety upgrades, as well as three row of seats.
Next year’s Mercury Sable also goes on sale this summer – replacing the Mercury Montego – with extensive design, powertrain and safety upgrades, as well as interior upgrades to differentiate it from the plebs.
Both the Taurus and Taurus X will get the Ford corporate face and should fit nicely into the lineup. All-new models should be out by 2010. Ford will be releasing pictures of all three models at the Chicago Auto Show so look out for them later in the day.
