Features

No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2017 Ford Taurus6, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2017 Chrysler 3003, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
