Ford Set to Produce Last Taurus
DEARBORN, MI – On October 25th, the assembly line at a Ford plant near Atlanta will come to a halt, signaling the end of the Taurus. After 21 years and sales of nearly 7 million cars, Ford Motor Co. is giving up on what some call the most influential automobile since Henry Ford’s Model T.
The Taurus made its debut in late-1985, and sold more than 263,000 models in 1986, its first full year on the market. It became the best-selling car in America in 1992 with sales of nearly 410,000, unseating the Honda Accord. It held the top spot for five straight years.
