You bought a 2010-up Ford Taurus — great car, but its console makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. This Scosche FD1447B dash kit allows you to install an aftermarket DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in the dash panel, while maintaining your touchscreen heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls. You can use this kit in vehicles with either single or dual climate controls. The kit is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this kit is compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Great looking product fit perfectly looks better than the original panel. Install was time consuming because of how much of the dash that has to come off but that is not this products issue. There are no pics for the install from Scosche but good instructions and Crutchfield does not have my 2012 Taurus car sheet for the dash install. i recommend this product but my only complaint was the din sized pocket was not easy to attach to the brackets so I used heavy duty velcro and Dynamat and now it is as solid as a rock. This is no switched 12v wire for any of the harnesses but you can find on in the fuse panel on the driver side up underneath once again this has nothing to do with this product but useful info. I have a 2012 Taurus SEL....also the touchscreen a/c looks very good and works like a charm.

Pros: Perfect fit and looks like it is stock and even better than original panel. Pretty easy to install.

Cons: Din sized pocket kind of cheap which was odd since the rest of the product is top notch.

Features

Compatibility: The Scosche FD1447B "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" dash kit is designed specifically for the 2010-up Ford Taurus. This dash kit allows you to replace your Ford Taurus' factory stereo to improve the overall sound quality of your car audio system. The "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" installation kit incorporates a full color, touchscreen air conditioning controller and is configurable for single or dual climate controls. The kit plugs directly into the factory AC harness making for a quick and easy install without needing to cut or splice wires.

Automotive Grade ABS Plastic: Scosche's "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" dash kit offers automotive-grade components for seamless installation of almost any aftermarket head-unit to replace your Ford Taurus factory radio. This dash kit has been designed with high quality automotive grade ABS plastic to match the texture, contour, and paint of your factory panels.

Touchscreen AC Controller: In the 2010-up Ford Taurus, the factory radio and the air conditioning controls are incorporated into one unit, making it difficult to upgrade the factory radio with an aftermarket system. The FD1447B kit makes is possible to update to an aftermarket in-dash head unit by integrating a touchscreen AC controller into the dash kit. The FD1447B is configurable for single and dual climate controls. Operating climate controls include:

  • Climate controls (on/off)
  • Temperature control (manual/dual/auto)
  • Air flow/vent controls
  • Fan speed (up/down)
  • Air Condition (max/on/off)
  • Defrost/rear defogger
  • Heated/cooled seat controls

Single-/Double-DIN Compatible: The Scosche FD1447B "Custom Kit/Factory Fit" dash kit accommodates a single-DIN mount head unit with included pocket, or a Double-DIN mount stereo.

Simple Installation: Installation of this kit is simple. No special tools are required, and the included step-by-step instructions will guide you through the install. The Scosche FD1447B will include all the necessary hardware, including pre-installed factory style clips and a plug-in HVAC wiring harness.

Note: You will still need a Ford radio replacement interface module and harness, as well as an antenna adapter and steering wheel control interface (all sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible and what additional accessories will be needed.

Firmware Upgradeable: The Scosche FD1447B's HVAC harness is fitted with a male USB (type-A) connector for firmware updates only.
