On December 27th, 1985, the Ford Taurus officially went on sale. Ford’s forward-looking, aerodynamic FWD mid-size sedan and wagon completely changed the game in the United States, elevating what American consumers came to expect from their cars. The Taurus became a huge hit, and between 1992 and 1996, was the number one selling car in the US. Over the next several days, you’ll see a number of diverse articles covering every generation of Taurus, from the groundbreaking first generation to the remarkably oval-themed third, and beyond. Ford’s more reserved sibling, the Mercury Sable, gets plenty of coverage too.
So queue up Springsteen’s “Glory Days” and have it ready to play while reading our content, since it works perfectly as the theme song to the saga of the Taurus.
