Probably the wrong forum, maybe even web site to ask, but what the heck, let's see.
Is Ford's full sized vehicle the Taurus rumored to be discontinued at any time? I would think it would be similarly equipped (and trimmed) as the Fusion, but after looking on-line, I see some things that make me wonder how serious Ford is keeping the Taurus up to date.
- Foot operated parking brake?
- Adaptive cruise control without stop and go?
- Non-rotary gear selector -- which I can understand for vehicles with Ford's SelectShift transmissions. I guess in the Taurus case, they have both SelectShift and not, so why offer both selector and rotary options? Wouldn't make much sense as far as continuity.
So even with #3 removed, why would the Fusion be getting newer technology implemented before the Taurus?
