2017 Taurus Alert

If you see a 2017 Taurus today, you may be in China. Not the USA.
Seems like they should be out by now. Or at least talked about.
Some sources say the Chicago Taurus plant is working, and the cars are going to China.
Anyone have insight on this?

It is unlikely that they are going to export, at least with regard to what is built in the Chicago facility.

2017 Taurus Order Guide is available. I will attach.

Very few changes for MY 2017. Caribou, Guard, and Bronze Fire Tinted Clearcoat are gone. White Gold and Smoked Quartz have been added. Limited 300A and SHO 400A have been eliminated. "Clear Phase" Sony audio is STANDARD on Limited and SHO. Multicontour massaging seats are gone.

Looks like there is a new wheel for SEL and SHO in the 20" range as well.

Ooh, a new wheel. *claps sarcastically*

Amazing, Ford.

It's worth noting someone's edited the Wikipedia article on the Taurus saying MY17 is the final year for the current model. No sourcing on that though.

It's been one foot in the "fleet only" grave since 2015, what more did you expect? I'm shocked they even did that.

Thanks, Franchise, for sharing the proprietary ordering guide. Interesting stuff, that.
As of yet Ford.com has just the '16 and of course no 17 at any dealer.
My Chinese information comes from a model year monitoring site that claims the Taurus is quite popular in China due the the large size and good price point. They claim Americans won't see the 17 until the China market is well stocked.
But who knows if that is fact.
I sure like the 15 Limited just purchased a couple weeks back. A Bronze Fire Metallic Beauty, if you ask me.
Thanks again.

If it were me and I were back in the Taurus market (and part of me wishes I were, I still love the design of the car), I'd be getting a left over 2016 right now in Guard. Sync 3 plus better colors? Sign me up.

That being said I long for the Clear Phase Sony audio, too.

Is Clear Phase Sony audio different than what was used in previous model years?

It is a new system to the Taurus.

Here's a video from the Explorer:

Still no sign of a '17 Taurus in the USA. Ford.com alludes to 2017, but then offers you nothing but MY 16 information.
Carsoid.com has rumors the '17 may never reach the USA, and may be made in China, and primarily sold in China.
Another rumor is Chinese made Tauruses will be imported here. I feel ill at the thought.

So, besides the big question where are the '17's, the next question is just what, exactly, is the Ford Chicago Assembly Plant producing? Nothing but Explorers?

Just in case anyone is interested, the MY17's are finally trickling to dealerships. Found an SES at an IL dealer.
None at all in SE WI. And still plenty of very nice 16's rapidly dropping in price. Found a very nice Limited well loaded for an asking price $32k Kinda with my 15 was a 16, but not for the extra 10 grand.
