Some of its strengths include an available all-wheel-drive system, a humongous trunk, excellent crash scores, fuel-sipping four cylinder engine, and comfortable and serene ride.

The Taurus now enters its eighth year of production in 2017, and some areas are starting to show their age. And with the cut-throat competition known in the segment, it is likely to face an uphill task trying to remain relevant in the segment. However, Ford says the new vehicle comes with added luxury, better driving dynamics, and is feature laden.

The outgoing model’s MyFord Touch system has been phased out and in its place comes the updated Sync 3 infotainment system. According to Ford, the new systems is intuitive and more responsive. And just like the model before it, the redesigned 2017 Taurus benefits from a powerful SHO model, a massive trunk, a spacious cabin, and an available AWD option.

When it comes to its liabilities, though, it comes short in terms of high price tag particularly for the SHO model; may of its rivals outdone it; and the cabin is confining. That in mind, it would be vital to consider other options within its price range. They include the 2017 Kia Cadenza, 2017 Chrysler 300, 2017 Toyota Avalon, and the 2017 Chevrolet Impala. Those penchant on performance can consider the 2017 Chevrolet SS model.

With an appealing choice of engines, a confident highway cruising, a well-appointed interior, and capable handling, the 2017 Ford Mustang is poised to make headlines once it is released. For 2017, though, buyers shouldn’t expect any radical changes as the vehicle is just coming off a previous redesign.

The Mustang is now a global product that has even made the luxury brands such as Mercedes-Benz and Audi take notice. But don’t get us wrong, the fun-loving Mustang isn’t a luxury vehicle but its classy design and interior luxury are making the German luxury automakers think twice. And the catch here is, it’s undoubtedly an American performance icon that retains the tire-smoking exuberance expected of such cars.

Some common downsides to owning a Mustang include a cramped rear seat, and a bouncy ride quality on uneven surfaces.

2017 Ford Expedition Release Date and Info

It has nowadays become a norm for SUVs to have car-based underpinnings over the previous body-on frame crossovers. The new 2017 Ford Expedition is however not among those ditching the old platform for the new one due to these elements like improved cargo and interior space as well as towing ability, which it would not want to let go of yet. Its release date is slated for August 2017.

And with an increased interior flexibility, spacious third-row seating, easy-folding rear seats, and efficient yet potent turbocharged V6 engine, it will undoubtedly be poised to be a top choice for most buyers looking for a capable SUV. Rumors also allege the vehicle has slimmed up a bit as a result of the extensive use of aluminum in its construction.

Interior wise, you get plenty of space and upscale technologies. The Platinum, Limited and Limited trims, for instance, are very classy. These models offer anything ranging from the Sync 3 interface to the leather upholstered seats. And driver-oriented, and premium designed push buttons somewhere in between.

In terms of the cargo room, there is no shortage here. You will get anything from between 18.6 cubic ft. to 42 cubic ft. depending on the trim level, and up to 130.8 cubic ft. when the seats in the EL trim are fold. That’s about 10 cubic ft. more than the Suburban and Sequoia in terms of comparison.

The only notable drawback we have noticed in the new 2017 Ford Expedition is its unapologetic size, which would be particularly a nuisance when trying to fit in tight spaces like parking lots or in traffic. Other than that, you are looking at an “A” rated vehicle that delivers in almost every facet. We however recommend our readers to look at their priorities first before heading to the showrooms to make a purchase.
