What’s the Ford Taurus SEL’s top speed?

I own a used Ford Taurus SEL. I always joke to my friends about how I’ve pushed this car to the brink—but honestly, I’m wondering what it would take to truly push it to its limits. What is the Taurus SEL’s top speed?

It’s wonderful that you’ve gotten plenty of good use out of your noble steed—and you’re not the only one. The Ford Taurus was the best-selling car in the U.S. for many years. The 2018 Ford Taurus SEL has a top speed of 150 mph.
Theoretically, without a governor, the 3.5L V6 SEL AWD also can go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds. Of course, 2018 is one of the last years for the Ford Taurus before the model retired in 2019. If you look at the specs on earlier generations, this speed will go way down. The 2014 Taurus tops out at an estimated 113 mph.
Did you know the third-generation Ford Taurus became the first four-door sedan approved for NASCAR competition? In fact, the Ford Taurus has won three Winston Cup championships and two Busch Series championships!
