Ford Taurus will be manufactured in China from 2015

The Ford Taurus will be manufactured in China from 2015 at the Changan-Ford joint venture. The Ford Taurus will have its China-debut on the April 2015 Shanghai Auto Show. Price will range from 300.000 yuan to 450.000 yuan ($50.000 – $75.000). The Taurus will be powered by a 2.0 four-cylinder with 240hp, a 3.5 liter V6 with 365hp, and a new China-only 2.5 liter four-cylinder which will be positioned between the 2.0 and the 3.5.

The Taurus will be the largest China-made Ford sedan so far. The current largest sedan is the Ford Mondeo which is priced from 179.800 yuan to 265.800 yuan. Ford is on a roll in China with sales up 53% in January alone. Ford plans to launch 15 new cars on the Chinese market by 2015, under a master plan creatively called ‘1515’.

    Good news. But why so expensive? That sounds more like an import price?

    […] TAURUS TO CHINA Reports out of China say that Changan Ford is going to start manufacturing the Taurus in the country. In addition to the 3.5 L V6 and 2.0 L turbo currently available in the Taurus, it will reportedly get a 2.5 L turbo just for the Chinese market. The base price of the car supposedly will start at $50,000, almost twice as much as it costs in the U.S. Ford has been on a roll in China, growing faster than most other established manufacturers.

    I am so glad I just bought my brand new 2014 Ford Taurus which was made in the USA. The idea of giving China the deal of making the Taurus from now on is horrible. this country has the worst human rights violations in the world. I am afraid this will be the last Taurus I will buy from Ford. You lost me as a customer and am sure many more informed American people, shame on you all!

    They’re making the Taurus in China for the China market only! The US version will still be built in Chicago.
