And just like that, there it is. Automotive News is reporting today Ford indeed will change the name of the Five Hundred to Taurus. Executives will announce the change at the Chicago auto show press days tomorrow, according to a source. The Jalops called it by a slim majority of those who voted on our Question of the Day, yesterday: 59.0% indicated Ford should slap the Taurus badge on the Five Hundred. The company apparently felt decades of brand development outweighs any baggage the Taurus name may carry. And hey, maybe a twin-turbo SHO is in the cards? [Thanks to Frank for the tip.]
