I say yes...with just a few subtle changes...Headlights, rear doors and rear window and rear lights...I am not the expert but....it was built on the same frame and uses the same engines...and MOST parts are interchangeable!

If not, a whole lot of people in this club need to get their asses over to SCCA, the Sable Car Club of America... Oh, wait, that doesn't really exist. :p I guess the Sable is a Taurus after all. Viva la Bull! :ford: & Viva la Rodent! :merc:

hmmm.... YOUR SABLE is not a taurus. What's up with that dented fender and effed up bumper? There are plenty of parts in the junkyard. Why keep funky parts on your car?

They are basically the same with the exception of some body stuff.

I have certain interior parts from a Sable in my Taurus, so I certainly can't discriminate against the Sable.

While they are not identical, they are pretty much the same.

However, the idea of a 2010 Sable does not excite me while the 2010 Taurus does.

A Sable is not a Taurus by the very definition of their names itself. A Sable is not a version of the Taurus: it is its own car. Granted, 95% of the parts may be similar, but it is still separate. It's like asking whether a 98 Taurus is a 99 Taurus...they aren't: different years.

And a SHO is a Taurus as the SHO is a trim line of the Taurus. It's as bad as Neon SRT owners who refuse to believe their car is a neon...or Civic Type R racers who don't believe they have a civic...

i say no. if my car has a taurus badge on it then its a taurus but it doesnt so its not a taurus its a sable (even though it doesnt say that anymore lol) if the sable was a taurus it would say taurus on it... they were designed on the same platform as two seperate entities and were marketed as such

Cosmetics and name badges aside, they are the same car in the way a Firebird is a Camaro, AKA a GM "F" body.
