The 2008 Ford Taurus X is a full-size crossover that offers three rows of seating, a powerful 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 6-speed automatic transmission and a long list of standard safety equipment - including side curtain air bags and AdvanceTrac electronic stability control.

Innovative convenience features on the Taurus X include one-touch, flip-and-fold second-row seating and an available power rear liftgate.

"The three-row Taurus X joins our crossover lineup as a great complement to the popular Ford Edge," says Cisco Codina, Ford's group vice president of North America Marketing, Sales and Service. "Like Edge, the new Taurus X delivers confident design, spirited performance and handling, and plenty of standard safety equipment. With Taurus X, customers get a roomy interior that is flexible, functional and comfortable - in all three rows."

Taurus X is available in SEL, Eddie Bauer and Limited trims, and is built at Ford's Chicago Assembly Plant.
