Scotty, What do you think of the Ford Taurus X? How come they didn't sell all that well? How good was it compared to it's predecessor, the Ford Freestyle?
taurus itself had a bad record over time, so I assume that just followed the X when it came out to some extent
The Taurus X has several improvements over the Freestyle. First, it has a six-speed automatic instead of a CVT, which were weak in Fords. Second, it has electronic stability control, which keeps the car from sliding around in emergency situations. The Freestyle wagged its rear end quite a bit when trying to swerve around a road hazard. Scotty Kilmer borrowed a Taurus X from Ford 10 years ago when they came out.
