   It’s a Shame the Taurus X May Soon Depart –
            It’s a ‘Heckuva’ Station Wagon
         BY KEITH GRIFFIN

When it comes to station wagons,
you just can’t beat the 2008 Ford
Taurus X. I know. Ford would
never call this crossover utility
vehicle a station wagon because
the term is no longer hip in the
automotive world, but that’s what
the Taurus X really is: a heckuva
good, family friendly station
wagon.
Unfortunately, it appears to be a
vehicle not long for the automo-
tive world. Published reports sug-
gest that the Taurus X will not be
offered after the 2009 model year.
It has been done in by the success
of the Ford Flex and Ford Edge. I
absolutely love the former and
can’t fathom why the latter has
succeeded.

Edge in the Taurus X, which first
