The Chinese version of the Ford Taurus is a full size car produced by Chinese joint-venture automobile manufacturer Changan Ford since 2015. Developed in conjunction with Ford of Australia, it is unrelated to the Ford Taurus produced in the United States from 1986 to 2019. In the Ford model line in China, the Taurus also serves as the flagship sedan, slotted above the Mondeo (Fusion in North America).
Since November 2015, Changan Ford has manufactured the Taurus in its Hangzhou facility. Produced solely for the Chinese market, there are no announced considerations regarding export of the model line.
The Changan Ford Taurus is derived from the Ford CD4 platform, adding 3.9 inches to the wheelbase of the Ford Fusion/Ford Mondeo, also sharing its platform architecture with the Lincoln Continental. While sharing similar front and rear fascia designs with the Mondeo, the Taurus was styled with a formal rear roofline.
At its launch, a 2.0L EcoBoost inline-4 (an option for the sixth-generation Taurus) is standard, with an optional 2.7L EcoBoost V6 (used in the Fusion and Lincoln Continental). During 2016, a 1.5L inline-4 was added. A 6-speed automatic is the sole transmission offering.
