Visit Ford for more information on the Ford Taurus.

The 2002 Ford Taurus line up of vehicles has earned itself a solid reputation that is not only a remarkable vehicle for families, but folks of every age and occupation. It has simply proven itself to be a versatile solution for everybody's transportation needs, and comes in a variety of body configurations to suit lifestyle and personal tastes.

Available Models
The new 2002 line up of Taurus vehicles is extensive, offering a wide array of choices. Sounding the challenge for their competitors this year are the 2002 Ford Taurus LX Sedan, SE Sedan, SES Sedan, and SEL Sedan. For those with greater cargo requirements, the sophisticated 2002 Ford Taurus SEL Wagon and SE Wagon are both sensible solutions.

Interior Features
The 2002 Ford Taurus boasts a long list of standard comforts and conveniences, listing such available features as power adjustable accelerator and brake pedals (standard on SEL models), a 60/40 split seat to accommodate surplus cargo, and a rear-facing third seat in the wagon model. The sedan is also available in five-passenger or convenient six-passenger seating configurations.

The SE Standard and SE Wagon are equipped with an AM/FM stereo with CD player for entertaining the troops as you cruise along. New for 2002, the SE, SES, and SEL come with a handy cargo net.

Exterior Features2002 Ford Taurus Wagon
Also added to the package for 2002 are LED rear high mount stop lamp and a wide range of new exterior paint colors. The rear liftgate on the wagon models makes accessing cargo simple and efficient. Its modern, flowing lines lend to an elegant and contemporary look and feel that won't get outdated.

Under the hood, the 2002 Ford Taurus features an efficient 3.0-litre, six-cylinder engine. Two powertrains are available: a 3.0-litre OHV Vulcan V6 that produces 155 horsepower and 185 lbs-ft of torque, and a 3.0-litre DOHC, 24-valve Duratec V6 that cranks out 200 horsepower and 200 lbs-ft of torque. Both accelerate quickly and quietly, with the Vulcan option running on E-85 ethanol, or regular unleaded gas.

2002 Ford Taurus dashboardSafety and Security
The 2002 Ford Taurus has received a five-star government crash test rating for driver and right front passenger, and has received accolades from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Each vehicle is equipped with a driver depowered air bag, passenger depowered air bag, and electronic crash severity sensor. The list continues with three-point seatbelts, child safety locks in the rear seating area, and child seat tethers and anchors.

Side impact air bags are available to you as an important option you should seriously consider. And finally, to protect your vehicle and its contents, every Taurus is fitted with the SecuriLock anti-theft system that prevents the ignition from being started without the right key.
