Ford Taurus 2008
The fifth generation of the Ford Taurus is an automobile that was manufactured and marketed by Ford Motor Company for the 2008 and 2009 model years. Originally intended as a mid-cycle update of the Ford Five Hundred, the Ford Taurus nameplate was revived after its unveiling at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show. As the revived Taurus replaced the Ford Five Hundred, a revived Mercury Sable replaced the Mercury Montego; the Ford Freestyle was renamed the Ford Taurus X.
