You’re looking for a vehicle that doesn’t drive like a bulky tank, but that has power beneath the hood. You want something that keeps you connected, whether your cell phone has service or not. The 2019 Ford Taurus may be the vehicle you’ve been searching for. Here’s everything you need to know about this all-in-one vehicle.

Performance

The 2019 Ford Taurus balances power and performance for a smooth ride with some kick. Standard on the 2019 is the 3.5-liter Ti-VCT engine that delivers 288 horsepower. Does that not sound like enough power? Upgrade to the Taurus SHO trim level and you’ll get the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that generates 365 horsepower. 

Something has to bridle all that power and torque. The 2019 Taurus includes Intelligent all-wheel-drive sensors that improve grip and enhance handling by balancing torque between the front and rear wheels. A Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control system adjusts braking to provide more grip when going around curves. The sportier SHO model includes a sport-tuned suspension that improves cornering and steering responsiveness, as well as better maintains traction, no matter the conditions. You can enjoy this powerful performance at 18 miles per gallon in town and 26 mpg on the highway.

Technology

Power and performance aren’t everything in a vehicle; your vehicle’s technology can really make or break your driving experience. To keep you connected, the 2019 Taurus includes Ford’s SYNC 3 system. With SYNC 3, you can keep your hands on the wheel and access navigation and smartphone connectivity with voice-activated technology. SYNC 3 also gives you access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can stay entertained on the road. 

The Taurus allows you to take this connectivity even further with Ford+Alexa. This system brings Amazon’s Alexa into your vehicle and, through connecting via SYNC 3, accesses traffic information, Amazon Prime shopping, and even connected smart home devices. 

Safety

In order to really enjoy the power, performance, and technology of the 2019 Ford Taurus, you have to be safe while driving. In addition to air bags surrounding the interior of the vehicle, the Taurus includes a host of safety technology that ensures your safe return whether you’re going to the store or across the country. 

Adaptive cruise control, for example, allows you to enjoy the convenience of cruise control while keeping you at a safe distance from the vehicles around you. The Lane-keeping system and Cross-traffic alert keeps tabs on traffic around you and guarantees that you stay safely in your lane.

Exterior and Interior Features

The 2019 Taurus will catch the eye of anyone on the road. This sedan blends luxury and sleek aerodynamics with a strong structure and sweeping lines. On the inside of the 2019 Taurus, you’ll find spacious seating for you and your passengers, as well as rich, sophisticated styling.
