    2010 Taurus earns Top Safety Pick

    from IIHS

    2010 Ford Taurus earns TOP SAFETY PICK award

    The 2010 Ford Taurus, a large family car, is the Institute's newest 2009 TOP SAFETY PICK award winner. To qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of good in the Institute's front, side, and rear tests and be equipped with electronic stability control. Criteria to win are tough because the award is intended to drive continued safety improvements such as top crash test ratings and the rapid addition of electronic stability control, which is standard on the Taurus.

    "Recognizing vehicles at the head of the class for safety helps consumers distinguish the best overall choices without having to sort through multiple test results," says Institute president Adrian Lund.
