Chicago Plant Says Goodbye To The Ford Taurus

April 19th, 2019 by

Ford announced last year that they would largely switch over to manufacturing SUVs, crossovers and trucks, with the exception of the Ford Mustang and the Ford Focus Active (arrives sometime this year).

Among the Ford sedans saying goodbye is the Ford Taurus. The Ford Taurus was first introduced in 1985 and remains in the Ford lineup through 2019. Over time, it became one of Ford’s most recognizable models.

As of March 1, 2019, the Ford Assembly Plant in Chicago completed production on the Ford Taurus. Since 1985, over 8 million Ford Taurus sedans were manufactured at the Chicago plant.

Beginning in 2020, Ford will shift the focus to the increasingly popular crossovers, SUVs and pickup trucks. Ford also plans to engineer and manufacture hybrid and electric versions of their future lineup to also fall in line with the demand for more energy efficient vehicles.

In the meantime, Sheridan Ford still has the Ford Taurus available on our lot. Go See Joe to lease or buy this iconic Ford car.
