In 1970 a new Taunus called Taunus TC was introduced, as a sedan, wagon (or Turnier) and coupe. It was very similar to the British Ford Cortina and many components were identical. The 1976 Taunus and Cortina models were identical in all but name, 'Taunus' being the name used in left hand drive (LHD) markets, and 'Cortina' in right hand drive ones, although the Cortina name was used in LHD South Korea and Taiwan. In 1982 production of the Taunus ceased, and replaced by the Ford Sierra. Production continued in Argentina, which had a local coupe version, and in Turkey, where the model continued in production well into the 1990s.
