Umm... not exactly.

The Taurus IS going to be around until 09.

The Futura is somewhat the replacement, and the name was battled over in court by Pep Boys, which Ford lost. The name has yet to be announced

If you search around the forums - you'd see that we've had information up the ying-yang about the Taurus and it's replacements.

Out with the old and in with the new!

Dodge replaces : Intrepid ('05), Neon ('07)
Ford replaces : Taurus ('09), Sable ('06?)


Intrepid gets replaced with the 300C HEMI powered engine
Neon might get replaced by just the regular "SRT-4" with a bigger, better, stronger, more durable engine
Taurus gets replaced with the "Futura (400)"
And the Sable... Well. uhh. I don't know.
