Kelly Blue Book (the US version of the Canadian Black Book) has been busy evaluating 10 redesigned vehicles this year.
For the second consecutive year, Ford has captured Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com “Best Redesigned Vehicle” award, this time for the hot-selling Taurus sedan. Last year, the honor went to the 2009 Ford F-150. The award may have been obvious from the start, according to one of the KBB editors:
The 2010 Ford Taurus became a contender for this year’s Best Redesigned Vehicle during our very first drive, after which one editor wrote: “We haven’t seen such a bold reversal of character since Ben Kingsley traded in his Ghandi robe to play a murderous gangster in Sexy Beast.”
Today’s recognition from KBB is the latest in a string of awards for the 2010 Ford Taurus. Earlier this month at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the Taurus was named International Car of the Year, and it received KBB 2010 Best Resale Value Award in the full-size car category. In January, the 2010 Taurus will serve as the official car of the 2010 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show®) in Las Vegas.
