Ford has announced plans to introduce the new Taurus at Auto Shanghai 2015.

Set to be unveiled on April 18th, the Taurus is being billed as a "sophisticated" and "expressive" sedan that has been designed to meet the needs of Chinese consumers.

Ford didn't have much else to say about the model but previous spy photos have shown it will feature a Fusion-inspired front fascia with a prominent trapezoidal grille that is flanked by slender headlights. 

It remains unclear how much the Chinese-spec Taurus will have in common with the US-spec model but hopefully we'll find out soon enough.
