Model Highlights

The 2009 Ford Taurus X has one of the roomiest interiors of any vehicle its size, with three rows of versatile seating, and its available in 6- or 7-passenger configurations. With a special "stadium style" seating arrangement, the third-row occupants sit higher up than the second row, affording better visibility and more legroom than they would otherwise have.

With the second and third rows folded flat, the Taurus X offers a cavernous 85 cubic feet of cargo space. Furthermore, the front passenger seat folds flat to fit items up to 9 feet long.

A 263-horsepower, 3.5L V6 engine is matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission. An intelligent all-wheel drive system is optional and can send up to 100% of torque to the front or rear wheels; the system is also able to anticipate which wheels need more power before they slip.

Safety is a strong aspect to the Taurus X, which carries top 5-star results in federal frontal and side crash tests. Seat-deployed side airbags protect the driver and passenger and safety canopy side curtain airbags are there for outward occupants in all 3 rows. AdvanceTrac electronic stability control is standard on every Taurus X, as are anti-lock brakes. New for 2009 is the SOS post-crash alert system, which sounds the horn and flashes the lights in the event of an accident.

The Taurus X is available in base SEL, Eddie Bauer and top Limited trims. Standard equipment on the SEL includes keyless entry, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, a roof rack, a power driver's seat, leather trim for the steering wheel and shift knob and a CD sound system with auxiliary input.

The Eddie Bauer model adds a unique 2-tone paint scheme, 18-inch alloy wheels, wiper-activated headlamps and special badging, while the top Limited adds 18-inch bright aluminum wheels, heated power mirrors with puddle lamps, heated front power seats, woodgrain trim, adjustable pedals, a reverse sensing system, an audiophile sound system with 6-disc changer and SYNC, a voice-activated, hands-free interface system for mobile phones and media players using Bluetooth and USB.

Major options include a voice-activated navigation system, Sirius satellite radio, and a DVD player with 8-inch screen. There's also an available power rear liftgate, with controls in the center console, rear cargo area and on the key fob.


Model News

The Ford Taurus X carries over to 2009 with virtually no changes. A post-crash alert system is now standard, which flashes the lights and sounds the horn following an accident that caused the airbag to deploy.


Value Writeup

Ford's 2009 Taurus X has one of the roomiest, most versatile interiors of any people-mover on the market today, and it's ideally suited as a family vehicle, with a great ride and a powerful engine. With straight 5-star crash test results, the Taurus X is ranked one of the safest cars on the road, making it an excellent choice for families on the move.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Ford Flex, 2008 and 2010-2012 Ford Taurus, 2008-2009 Ford Taurus X, 2008 Mercury Sable, 2009 and 2011 Lincoln MKS vehicles. The driver frontal air bag may improperly inflate during second-stage deployment in the event of a high speed crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

Consequence
An improperly inflated air bag increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the driver's frontal air bag module, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on June 13, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16C06.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
