    ^^^ Would that be a bad thing? The 2010 Taurus is a good looking car; one of the best-looking cars Ford has come up with in a long time.

    Yes, I think the Taurus is sweet-looking.
    I remember thinking the early Taurus was quite Audi-esque. Now it will be Merc-esque.

    The streets and highways will soon be filled with identical cars, differing only in their nameplates. Like NASCAR.

    I don't really see how the S-Class and the new Taurus look much alike all, to be honest.

    The new Taurus reminds me of a Volvo, the shoulder line for instance. [​IMG]

    The Taurus doesn' t look as good in real life as it does in that illustration. Well, most cars don't.

    Still better looking than the 1995 Taurus Wagon my parents had.

    I don't see the resemblance either. The Taurus reminds me more of the Chevy Malibu.

    Have to agree- I have never owned an American car but some of teh Euro-Ford touches finally making their way to the states have impressed me.

    Looks pretty good. I like the ridiculous amount of LEDs in the taillights.

    Looks a bit more sharp than the current S klasse.

    Looks more and more like a Chrysler.

    The general config of the vehicle is nice, however my mind would be put at ease if the headlights were a bit different. The component of audi-knockoff is obvious, and it it doesn't look nearly as good as it did on the original Audi.

    Agreed. The flares still look slapped-on.

    The new E class is growing on me despite the 3-series ripoff character line (which is MUCH too heavy).
