Don Chalmers Ford of Albuquerque, NM is happy to announce that the new 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine onboard the 2013 Ford Taurus delivers the best fuel economy in the large sedan segment. Besting key competitors like the Chevrolet Impala and Chrysler 300, the Taurus has been EPA-certified at 32 mpg highway
The new 2.0-liter in-line four-cylinder engine makes 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. The 2013 Taurus is also available with two other powertrain options. The 3.5-liter V6 with twin independent variable camshaft time (Ti-VCT) produces 288 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque, and the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost delivers 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.
Raj Nair, vice president of Engineering for Global Product Development says, Taurus fuel economy showcases Fords success in developing smaller yet more powerful engines for its larger vehicles.
The 2013 Ford Taurus is also the only vehicle in its class to include an Active Grille Shutter System, which also improves fuel economy. Located behind the front grille,
the Shutter automatically opens and closes to allow only the amount of air to pass through that will maintain desired engine temperature, thus improving aerodynamics.
