Interesting information, ice-capades.

So, it does appear Ford will introduce the redesigned Taurus in the US?

There were rumors the new car made in China would never make it here.

The 2018 is the current model, not the new Chinese CD4 Taurus.  Note that 2017 production stops one day and 2018 starts the next.   There won't be many (if any) changes between the 2017 and 2018.

It does not appear to be the re-design, since there was no announcement.

Other than a minor refresh in 2013, the car hasn't changed even a bolt. Guess they will keep it going 'as is' since they will continue building the police version.

D3 mafia.   Members will discuss buying used vehicles, especially old police cruisers and chastise Ford for not continuing to make them even though they have no intention of buying a new one.

IL State Police have tons of Taurus PI's for highway patrol. Though the Explorer is more common for urban/suburban departments.

 

Unmarked Tauruses do blend in more than the Vic's, since they look like many Asian sedans

The 2018MY Taurus USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) is due to open on 07/18/2017. The 2018 Taurus Order Guide will be uploaded to the Order Guide Section as soon as it is released to Dealers. It's usually available on or about the day that the USOB opens but there are sometimes delays if Ford is still finalizing the ordering specifications, etc.
