Ford Taurus (second Generation)

The second-generation Ford Taurus is an automobile produced by the Ford Motor Company from 1992 to 1995, which served as the second out of six generations of the Ford Taurus.

The second-generation Taurus shared all of its mechanical parts with the first-generation Ford Taurus, yet its exterior and interior were nearly completely redesigned. However, its exterior still strongly resembled that of the first-generation Taurus, leading many to falsely believe that the second-generation was simply a face-lift of the first-generation Taurus. This is partially true, however, as the wagon model, from the B-pillar to the rear of the car, was a carryover from the first generation. The second generation of Taurus proved to be very popular, selling 410,000 units in its first year, becoming the best selling car in the United States. It would hold this title until 1995, when it was discontinued and replaced with the third-generation Ford Taurus.

Famous quotes containing the words taurus and/or ford:

    Upper and Lower Kingdom will declare
    God’s in this wooden toy,
    no less
    than where
    great Taurus ploughs his course.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    The Declaration [of Independence] was not a protest against government, but against the excess of government. It prescribed the proper role of government, to secure the rights of individuals and to effect their safety and happiness. In modern society, no individual can do this alone. So government is not a necessary evil but a necessary good.
    —Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)
