Not all manufacturers offer full-size sedans. The market will continue to shrink as consumers blaze the crossover trail. The Taurus is larger than the mid-size Fusion sedan, but the smaller model has the roomier interior.
Ford offers the 2019 Taurus in SE, SEL, Limited, and SHO trims. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is available. The first three trims have a 3.5-liter V6 with 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. The Taurus SHO comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 with an output of 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. The SHO has standard all-wheel drive. Both engines work with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Standard features include power-folding side mirrors, LED taillights, and dual-exhaust tips. Keyless entry, full power accessories, a 4.2-inch display screen, and an audio package are also included. Our recommended Taurus Limited adds such features as push-button start, leather seats with heated and cooled front seats, heated outboard rear seats, and the top version of Ford’s infotainment system.
