2016 Ford Taurus Pickup Truck Render



Just thought that I would add to the other renders that have been on the site this one of a Ford Taurus pickup truck.

A lot of these renders haven't been confirmed or even considered publicly, but with the Santa Cruz and Mercedes-Benz pickup trucks seeming quite likely, it is very possible that other brands will join in.

A 2016 Ford Taurus Transformed Into a Pickup Truck is Not a Very Bad Idea - autoevolution

If Ford actually does this, they could possibly be the ones leading the segment, seeing how much of the market they already have with current trucks.

It actually does look quite nice. Autoevolution says its really not going to happen, but the render makes it look pretty nice. If everyone is going to jump into this ute segment, then this would be a great addition to the segment.

Why not? If Ford wants to compete, I say bring on the competition. We simply need options like the Santa Cruz in the market.

Build it off the new Mustang platform and I'll trade both my Tacoma & my Mustang in. A perfect replacement for both!

Now that's what i'm talking about!

Just imagine all the Mustang aftermarket and OEM goodies we could throw on and eventually turn it into

This is what the article says as far as why this won't happen.

As we slowly get our feet back on Earth, here's why a Ford Taurus truck would never work. First of all, the Taurus is all about space and comfort. This means that inside, passengers receive particular attention, especially if they sit in the backseat.

Good point.
Even more points to a Mustang truck as mustangs are focused around the driver, making it a great platform for a truck to be based off of.

Yea but I don't think that Ford has any intention of doing any other body styles for the Mustang. I think they would see that is being a detriment to the Mustang brand.

LOL Ford is not going anywhere near ANYTHING that has the potential to pull away sales from The Franchise. Ford stopped selling us Rangers because they said what we really wanted was F-150s...no...if they got rid of a legitimate small truck like the ranger no shot they go moon hunting with a chopped and screwed police special...
