Ford Taurus

The fate of the Taurus is still up in the air after Ford announced that it will stop producing it in favour of SUVs, but it's still a popular choice for police fleets. Propelled by either a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo or a 3.5-litre V6, the Taurus is a comfortable and quiet full-size sedan. In the SHO trim, its muscular twin-turbo V6 engine sends 365 horsepower to all four wheels, making the Taurus a fast and surprising agile big sedan.
