Overview

What's New in the 2019 Ford Taurus?

There are no notable changes for the 2019 Ford Taurus.

Which Taurus is the Best?

The sporty SHO might be tempting to some, but since the regular Taurus makes a virtue of not being sporty, we'd be more inclined to go for an SEL version with a few options like the upgraded infotainment system.

Ford Taurus Safety

Is the 2019 Ford Taurus a Safe Car?

The 2019 Ford Taurus features antilock disc brakes and a full complement of side- and front-impact airbags, along with other standard safety features such as electronic stability control, rollover sensors and a post-crash alert system. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is standard on the Limited and the SHO. Adaptive cruise control, as well as collision warning with brake assist optional on those two higher grades.

In government crash tests, the Taurus received a perfect five stars in front, side and overall impact protection. It was just as successful in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) test program, where it took the highest score of Good in the moderate-overlap frontal offset, side-impact, roof strength and rear-impact tests. It hasn't been subjected to the small-overlap front crash test.

Competition

2019 Ford Taurus vs the competition

2019 Buick LaCrosse -- One of the best cars Buick has ever made. Roomy and classy. Too bad General Motors is discontinuing it.

2019 Chrysler 300 -- Perhaps the closest competitor, the Chrysler 300 offers a similar model range (mainstream trim levels complemented by a performance package), and pricing is comparable.

2019 Toyota Avalon -- Totally redesigned for 2019, the Avalon still offers no option for AWD, but the ride is comfy. The Avalon reaches quality levels that are almost Lexus like. Also available as a hyper-efficient hybrid.

2019 Chevrolet Impala -- Chevrolet has reinvented its large sedan to be more than a rental-fleet stalwart. Get it while you can, because Chevy is discontinuing it.

2019 Kia Cadenza -- Spacious and comfortable, the Cadenza is yet another example of Kia's growing confidence and sophistication.

Used BMW 5 Series -- You can find a certified pre-owned (CPO) 5 Series for the price of a high-end Taurus. BMW's solid CPO warranty makes it a tempting proposition.
