Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.


The Ford Taurus caused a small revolution when it was first released; here was a FWD, economical, and futuristic American family sedan which wasn’t completely awful! (like the K car and Chevy Celebrity were) However, over the years, the once simple and compact D186 cars have ballooned into giants riding on a modified Volvo platform. Were these early cars with Yamaha SHOs the best, or does the new Ecoboosted version do it for you?
