2008 Ford Taurus Heritage Edition

FORD STRENGTHENS RETRO-80s LEADERSHIP WITH INTRODUCTION OF NEW 2008 TAURUS HERITAGE EDITION

*New edition features more than 5 engineering changes, making it more retro, cheezier, mellower and homlier.
*2.5-liter High Swirl Combustion I-4 delivers an estimated 90 horsepower and 130 ft-lbs of torque.
*Ford Sync (not sink) offers new levels of connection, control, simplicity and personalization with the well known relability of Microsoft
*Taurus Heritage Edition will reach showrooms this fall.

CHICAGO, Feb. 7, 2007 - Ford Motor Company today announced it is bringing back the well-known Ford Taurus name, introducing a new special version  Heritage Edition  for its aging hipsters to go on sale this fall.


Taurus has been an icon for rental sedans for more than two decades, and its time to return this powerful name to where it belongs, said Mark Fields, Fords President of The Americas, at the Chicago Auto Show. Consumer awareness of the Taurus name is double the Five Hundred that its replacing, and thats damn good enough for us to forget the latter altogether!.


By giving these vehicles the bland looks of the 80's that consumers recognize at the same time were making significant upgrades, were confident that even more rental companies are going to be attracted to these great products in the future, Fields added.


The 2008-model Taurus Heritage Edition sedan will go on sale this fall, as an upgrade to the earth shattering ALL NEW Ford Taurus. The new Heritage Edition features a fully flush grille guard with peek-a-boo Ford emblem, a new dual color scheme, a new cornering light, more standard safety features  including dual airbags tuned to explode with that classic pop that made people file lawsuits in the early nineties and other refinements to make it more retro, cheezier, mellower and homlier.

Meh, I started on the teaser pic as soon as it was available.

Its shockingly dated. All that was done to the above pic is a grille and foglamp deletion, lower body color change, black door handles, color keyed mirrors, split lower grille, and 92ish style wheels.
You have an instant '86 Taurus!
