The Taurus family of cars has always focused on comfort, and recently, the company added the 2019 Ford Taurus in the history books. While the car is yet to be unveiled in the U.S., the Chinese version is already making waves. It is nicely equipped, well-spaced, and fairly attractive.
2019 Ford Taurus – Features and Design
The overall design of the 2019 Ford Taurus resembles the new Lincoln Continental. It measures one hundred and ninety-six inches in length and seventy-three inches in width. It has four doorways and impressive front. The front boasts a trapezoidal bar grille, directed fog lamps, and LED headlamps. There are two exhaust pipes at the back and a panoramic glass roof at the top. The 20-inch aluminum wheels are other noticeable features of the exterior makeup.
Inside the car, there is a wide center stack, a collection of digital instruments, a rotary gearbox, and a huge legroom space for the passengers at the back seat. Among the attractive features in the digital compartment is a 10.1-inch touchscreen that bears Ford’s SYNC3 user interface. The leather-covered seats are comfortable enough especially with the inclusion of a heating and massage system. And they are also well spaced so that all passengers can fit in comfortably. Another feature that catches the eye is the trunk. It has a huge volume that measures 20-cubic-feet. .
Taking the negatives and positives into consideration, the 2019 Ford Taurus can undoubtedly be categorized among the classy Ford sedans. Its huge grille, fine chrome finishes, and angling back headlights bring out a limousine-like image of the car. Without a doubt, the 2019 Ford Taurus will challenge some of the best sedans in the industry.
Engine and Driving Performance
The 2019 Ford Taurus uses a 2-liter Ecoboost engine with four cylinder chambers. This type of engine is capable of generating power of around 240 horsepower, which is less by 16 when it is compared to a standard six-cylinder engine. However, the torque, or the turning ability of the crankshaft, is higher at a reduced engine speed. But the car doesn’t consume excess fuel. It can consume up to 1 gallon of fuel per 23 miles, which is still within the standard rate bracket.
The initial testing of the car has revealed pleasing results. Driving at highways speeds of about 70 miles per hour, it can take up to 180 feet for the car to stop after applying the brakes. Its lateral grip or the ability of the car to remain in its course is also decent. It measures 0.84 g around the skip pad. This is probably due to the 13 and 14-inch rotors installed at the front and the back respectively.
Price and Expected Date of Arrival
The fully equipped Ford Taurus may range between $37,000 and $43,000. This is a car that has an automated climate control system, 2 USB ports, a Wireless Bluetooth, Wireless 4G LTE contacts, and a reinforced wiper system for driving in moist and foggy conditions. But 2019 Ford Taurus versions that lack the full package will have $28,000 price.
As for the release date, the 2019 Ford Taurus is set to be launched in 2019. But there are also reports that it may hit the market during the final months of 2018.
