Ford has recently announced that the 2013 Taurus model will get a new 2.0 liter EcoBoost engine, which will give the vehicle a better highway fuel economy compared to its competition.
According to the North American based automaker, the 2013 Ford Taurus equipped with the new 2.0 liter EcoBoost Engine will return 32 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg combined, which is actually better than models like the 2012 Chrysler 300, the Dodge Charger, the Toyota Avalon or the Chevrolet Impala.
“Ford understands people want fuel-efficient vehicles but don’t want to sacrifice power, cargo space or convenience preferences to get them,” said Raj Nair, vice president of Engineering for Global Product Development. “Taurus fuel economy showcases Ford’s success in developing smaller yet more powerful engines for its larger vehicles.”
The 2013 Ford Taurus equipped with the standard 3.5 liter V6 engine is returning 19 mpg in city and 29 mpg on the highway. Ford says that the new engine in the 2013 Taurus, the 2.0 liter four-cylinder EcoBoost unit, is developing a total output of 240 horsepower and the model will reach the company’s dealers this summer. More details on the 2013 Ford Taurus EcoBoost, including the price tag, will be announced close to its launch.
