Ford still has not decided if they are updating the Taurus (US) to the new platform. With SUV and Truck sales booming, Ford is not looking to invest $$ in any sedans. There is hint that the Fusion will be discontinued after the current cycle ends. ( I doubt this will happen - They sell way too many to discontinue). Hence the new Bronco and Ranger. Ford is even testing a Ranger Raptor.
I thought the old Taurus/MKZ rode on the old Volvo 90 platform? The old Fusion used the old Mazda 6 platform.

Two completely different cars. The Chrysler can't hold a stick to the quality of the Lincoln. Just close the door on the 300 and then close the door of the Lincoln. You can hear the difference.

The online price for a new 300C is $36k. That's pretty enticing. Too bad it looks like Chrysler isn't going to make it. They're down to two models.
