|America's best-selling car
earned its first full overhaul for 1996,
adopting a stunning shape. So did the similar
Mercury Sable. Both mid-sizes were larger and
more rounded than their 1986-95 predecessors.
Wheelbase grew by 2.5 inches, to 108.5, while
overall length increased more than five inches
on the sedan and nearly six on the station
wagon. Both the 4-door sedan and 4-door wagon
came in GL and deluxe LX trim. The GL held an
overhead-valve 3.0-liter V6 engine, rated at 145
horsepower. The LX got a new dual-cam 3.0-liter
Duratec V6, which produced 200 horsepower. Both
used a 4-speed automatic transmission. Dual
airbags were standard; antilock all-disc brakes
optional on all models. An oval integrated
control panel on the dashboard contained radio
and climate controls.A low-budget G sedan joined
during the 1996 model year, with the same engine
as the GL. So did a new high-performance SHO
sedan, holding a 235-horsepower, 3.4-liter
dual-cam V8 and standard antilock braking. G and
GL editions were gone, and an SE sedan and wagon
arrived for '98, as Taurus gained a more
assertive front end. The more powerful V6 engine
was now optional on the LX and SE. An LX
accelerates with greater authority than its
less-potent G/GL siblings. That 200-horsepower
engine is smooth, refined, and potent at higher
engine speeds. Low-speed torque is lacking,
however, so you must floor the throttle to
achieve brisk passing. The LX transmission
shifts smoothly. Not only is the G/GL V6 engine
less powerful, but it's noisier, rougher, and
slower. Its transmission often stumbles, shifts
roughly, and is slow to downshift for passing.
Low-speed power is definitely not lacking in the
SHO's V8, it's plenty potent at all speeds.
Steering is light and precise. Both models
corner with good grip and commendable composure.
The modern-looking control panel for the climate
and audio systems is easy to see and reach.
Interior space is better all around than before,
especially in the rear, where leg room has grown
substantially. Sitting three across, however,
will crowd everyone--in both front and rear. The
sedan trunk is roomy--wide, deep, and reaching
well forward. The driver enjoys a clear view to
the front and sides.
This is a rare hard to find vehicle and even
though it does not run once you rebuilt the
motor or drop a new one in, you will really have
something that many people will envy.
