I was given an exclusive, all access pass to Ford Motor Co.’s Chicago Assembly Plant for an unfettered tour of how the Ford Taurus is assembled & built. Afterwards, we motored on over to the TDM Facility where the Police Package Taurus is upfitted. Thanks to my pal Jeff Liu of HKMediaChicago for capturing this footage.

    You took a perfectly good Taurus & gave it a getto look with all of the crap you put on it. I'll take my Taurus "Limited" over yours any day. Good luck when you try to sell it.

    UGH, mostly these guys driving around parking lots. I can't believe Ford didn't give them a proper tour if they were going to allow them to post video.

    I know this newer explorer isn't very "truck like" my F series is and that's what I use it for, a truck to haul and tow. But the Explorer is a good "urban limo" to haul people and kids. I originally posted the first comment thanking the ford assembly folks for providing me with an excellent build quality. I've had this vehicle almost two full years and I've never had one mechanical issue or fit and finish issue. It's comfy and reliable. Does what i need it to do and I don't push it and ask it to do what it's not intended to do (heavy towing, hauling heavy loads) that's what the F series is for and it excels at that. I've read that a designer from Land Rover lent a hand in the design of the new explorer. I didn't know that Mitsubishi was involved, but with all the collaboration between brands to establish a fresh new model that sells, it wouldn't surprise me. My favorite body style car is actually the Dodge Challenger right now. Love the throwback to the old school muscle cars!

    + D Mcnamara I have to agree that the Explorer sure ain't up to any real "explorations" it was way more if a truck when it had body on frame construction. I like it for the fact it's a good family hauler "AKA station wagon" to get a bunch of kids from point A to B. Didn't know that it was a Mitsu knockoff. The way cars are made nowadays I feel like everything is disposable and nothing is made for longevity. As technology goes up reliability goes down. Are things really getting better? Or worse?

    The 2015 Explorer which I recently purchased was manufactured at this Assembly Plant on March 9, 2015. It's a great vehicle and I'd like to thank the auto workers who participated in it's manufacture!
