The Ford Taurus hasn’t been quite successful lately so the carmaker has decided to release its improved 2019 model. However, it seems that this 2019 Ford Taurus might be the last one you will see in the US market. According to our sources, there is also a Chinese version of Taurus that has served as an inspiration for this 2019 model.
The 2019 Ford Taurus is going to hit the market as a full-size four-door sedan. The first change that the company has made concerns its dimensions. Namely, the new Taurus will be smaller than its predecessor, based on the Chinese version of this car. However, this will not affect the space inside its cabin. On the contrary, the Taurus may be shorter and lower, but it will get a wider wheelbase that will allow even more spacious interior. The exterior design of this model will definitely be eye-catching. You will notice its improved aerodynamics and sleek profile. This sophisticated sedan will wear some nicely sculpted lines and enhance its stability and efficiency. In the front fascia, the fans will find a larger chrome mesh grille and swept back HID headlamps with LED daytime running lights. The new Taurus will stand on 20-inch aluminum wheels. In the back part of this vehicle, you will notice its LED taillights, its small rear spoiler and dual chrome exhaust tips.
The interior of the 2019 Ford Taurus will reveal a spacious and luxurious cabin that has been compared to the one found inside the Lincoln Continental. It means that you can expect some serious improvements and luxurious details. The stylish and comfortable cabin will offer plenty of space for its five passengers. The carmaker will use leather and other high-quality materials inside. The front seats will be power-adjustable, heated and cooled. You can also expect a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel. The driver will also find a 10.1-inch touch-screen display with the latest SYNC 3 infotainment system. It will provide features such as navigation system, audio system with 12 speakers, dual-zone automatic climate control, USB ports, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Some of the safety systems and driver assist features that you will get as standard include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, forward-collision warning, cross traffic alert and active park assist.
The 2019 Ford Taurus will offer more than one engine option under its hood. One of them could be a 3.5-liter V6 with 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. The other includes a 3.5-liter Eco Boost V6 with 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. A rumor has it that the Taurus might also offer a smaller optional 2.0-liter Eco Boost. Either of engines should be mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
