2019 Ford Taurus Specs, Release Date and Price
The presence of Taurus is over three decades around the market and we can say that it is one of the well-selling cars presented by Ford. Sadly, its popularity keeps fading due to the more innovative design that the rivals can give over it. Even Ford has the Fusion which makes it as the direct competitor because buyers can leave the Taurus only to get the Fusion with the more spacious cabin. Rumors said that there would be no 2019 Ford Taurus since the company is possible to discontinue it. It does not mean that its life is over and we would not see its arrival anymore.
In fact, current reports said about the presence of Chinese-built Taurus constructed from the CD4 platform. It will be released in US market and it will be called as the new 2019 Ford Taurus. In case that the rumor goes true so they will import the car from China, we can predict that some modifications will be done. Besides, there is a significant difference in the regulations. If they go with Chinese-built, it means the new car will have roomier cabin design. It will be about 7-inch shorter than before with narrower design and tall. Its wheelbase is 4-inch wider. We hope that the design will be identical to the Chinese version with the design details borrowed from the Fusion and some parts from Mustang as well as Focus. It has a classy look with the swept-back headlights, large rear, limousine-look bodywork, subtle chrome inserts and large grille.
Overall, the design is still identical to the new Lincoln Continental. It is what we expected because the two cars are identical for the platform. Therefore, it is safe to say that 2019 Ford Taurus may get some details and features from the car too. The center stack is wide with the rotary gear selector. The digital instrument cluster and the excellent legroom for the rear passenger will be their concern too. Ford is quite promising to give few unique touches to make it perfect for US buyer and the change should not be too much.
2019 Ford Taurus Engine
There is a possibility whether the company will use 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or bigger 2.7 liters twin-turbo V6. We assume that those are the closest engines for the 2019 Ford Taurus. Other said that the upcoming 2 and the 2.3 liter EcoBoost engines might be ditched so they will use the V6 engines. The lighter bodywork is helpful to give extra power with an excellent package. For the front wheel, it is the standard offer and the all-wheel drive is still optional. It may be the first car that will get the new eight-speed auto transmission.
2019 Ford Taurus is expected to be available at the end of 2018 with the price around $29,000 for the base version.
