The Ford Taurus X was a 7-passenger mid-size crossover SUV produced by the Ford Motor Company. The car is positioned between the 5-passenger mid-size Ford Edge and full-size Ford Flex crossover SUV. This vehicle replaces, and is a renamed and slightly restyled version of the Ford Freestyle, originally introduced in 2005. This vehicle was initially unveiled at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show as a 2008 model, alongside its distant cousins the Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable, re-badged, restyled versions of the Ford Five Hundred and Mercury Montego for 2008. This vehicle competes with the Hyundai Veracruz, and the Toyota Highlander and the Taurus X is an alternative to the Ford Explorer. Ford CEO Alan Mulally said that Ford's scheme to make all its cars names start with the letter F was a bad move, as it made Ford's new cars easily forgettable. As a result of this issue being addressed, the Ford Freestyle was renamed the Taurus X, the Mercury Montego was renamed the Mercury Sable, and the Ford Five Hundred was renamed the Ford Taurus. The design of the Taurus X closely resembles that of its sibling, the Ford Edge, creating a family face for its crossover segment. The Taurus X wears Ford Motor Company's new corporate grille, featuring three horizontal, chrome bars with center mounted blue oval. As seen in a pre-production limited model, the car features chrome accents, an aggressive front styling and crystal-like tailights. The Taurus X also receives a new Eddie Bauer trim-line, similar to that of a Ford Explorer. The vehicle, like its predecessor, features three rows of seats with seating for seven, like many larger SUVs (e.g. Ford Explorer) and minivans. The Taurus X is based on the Ford D3 platform and the updated powertrain includes the discontinuation of the CVT transmission previously used by the Freestyle, as well as the 3.0 L V6 in favor of the newly developed six-speed GM-Ford 6-speed automatic transmission automatic as well as the all-new 3.5 L Ford Duratec V6. The vehicle also receives new power options, including power-folded seats and a power lift gate.
