2013 Ford Taurus gets 26 mpg combined city-highway rating from EPA

Article by Anita Panait, on June 26, 2012

The US Environmental Protection Agency has certified the 2013 Ford Taurus, powered by Ford Motor Co.'s 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, of having a highway driving rating of 32 mpg and city driving rating of 22 mpg, for a combined city-highway rating of 26 mpg. The EPA certification allows Ford to claim mpg leadership in the mid-sized and luxury sedan segment, topping rivals like the 2012 versions of the Chevrolet Impala, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTEC, Porsche Panamera S Hybrid and Toyota Avalon. 

Aside from the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, buyers could also choose from two other powerhouse choices. A 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine that provides 365 hp of output and 350 pounds-feet of torque comes with the top-of-the-line Taurus SHO, receiving a highway driving rating of 25 mpg and a city driving rating 17 mpg.

The base Taurus, meanwhile is fitted with a normally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6 that gets a highway driving rating of 29 mpg and a city driving rating of 19 mpg. Ford will roll out the base Taurus this summer with a starting price of $28,390, including shipping. The other two models are already available on the market.
