Introduction

Over thirty-some years, the Ford Taurus has become an icon. In the beginning it was lean and radical, but today it’s a full-size front-wheel-drive sedan facing the end of its production run. The Taurus will disappear, most likely sometime this model year, as Ford continues its march toward a lineup of crossovers, SUVs, and trucks, with just a couple of passenger cars to remain.

This is the 10th year for this generation of Taurus. It’s solid and well-built, but its exterior, interior and packaging are somewhat dated as a result. It got minor updates in 2013 to keep up with rivals like the Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300, and Chevrolet Impala.

The base engine is a 3.5-liter V-6 making 288 horsepower, and, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, it works well for daily driving. The 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder was discontinued in 2018.

The 365-horsepower turbocharged V-6 in the all-wheel-drive SHO model is a blast. It accelerates from zero to 60 mph in about five seconds, using a 6-speed paddle-shifting transmission and riding on a tuned suspension. All-wheel drive is standard on the SHO and optional on the Taurus SEL and Limited.

The V-6 gets 18 city, 27 highway and 21 combined miles per gallon with front-wheel drive, 2 less mpg with all-wheel drive. We drove more than 250 miles in an all-wheel-drive model and got nearly 20 mpg combined. The Taurus SHO gets about the same as the base Taurus with all-wheel drive, scoring 16/24/19 mpg.

The NHTSA gives the Taurus five stars overall in crash testing, with four stars in rollover.

The IIHS gives it top Good scores in every test except for just Acceptable in the driver-side small-overlap test, which simulates impact with an oncoming car on a two-lane road. The IIHS also rated the Taurus’ headlights “Poor.”

Tellingly, the Taurus lacks optional automatic emergency braking—something standard on some competitors.

Lineup

Taurus models are SE, SEL, Limited, and SHO ($42,520).

For about $29,000, the SE comes with fabric upholstery, rearview camera, frustrating Ford Sync with Bluetooth connectivity and a 4.2-inch screen, six-speaker stereo, 18-inch wheels, and power adjustable front seats.

The $31,000 SEL adds automatic climate control, leather around the steering wheel, and a few other items. For $1,000, an option package includes a sophisticated 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Ford’s latest system is one of the best in the business for its quick reaction times, clear screen, and excellent app integration—Waze users need only pair their phones via Bluetooth.

For about $37,000, Limited models get Sync3, leather seats that are heated and cooled in front, keyless ignition, and wood trim. Options include Sony premium audio, heated steering wheel, and safety features such as blind-spot monitors with cross-traffic alert.

Topping the lineup, the SHO uses the twin-turbo V-6 and all-wheel drive. It’s fully loaded, with heated and cooled leather seats, and more. It starts at nearly $44,000, and adding some options pushes its price above $47,000.

A rearview camera is standard. Active safety features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, forward collision warning, and active lane control are available on SEL and higher models.

Walkaround

From its long overhangs to its high window line, the Taurus is the super size of full-size sedans. With a wheelbase of 112 inches, it blows out to a length of 203 inches, filling an average garage.

SE and SEL models ride on 18-inch alloy wheels, while the Limited and SHO use 20-inch wheels.

The SHO doesn’t have the visual punch of the Dodge Charger R/T, even though its black mesh-style grille and limited chrome accents give it some hints of menace.

Interior

A wide center console and a wraparound instrument panel divide the front seat into driver and passenger zones, a design found more often in coupes than sedans. A 4.2-inch screen comes standard on the SE, but an 8.0-inch upgrade is widely available. That SE uses the standard Sync infotainment, which controls a few basic phone and audio functions; SEL upgrades with the better Sync3 system, having Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Some Taurus models have artificial wood trim, while others use silver-painted plastic. But the Taurus isn’t supposed to be a luxury car; even the Limited model is more like an Impala than a Lincoln.

Given its exterior size, the Taurus’ cabin should be roomy, but it’s not as efficient as some sedans. The dual-cowl dashboard juts far into the passenger compartment. The wide, high center console takes up a lot room without offering much storage for small items.

The standard cloth front seats are wide and generally comfortable for average sizes, but they could use more contour. Good thing that’s an option, along with leather.

Passengers will note the sedan’s low roofline, and head room isn’t as soaring as in a crossover SUV. Leg room is okay, at 38.1 inches. Three adults can fit in the rear, but the middle position is for smaller passengers.

One thing to note, the Taurus’ thick roof pillars mean rearward visibility for the driver is particularly poor. Trunk space is huge, 20.1 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

The standard 3.5-liter V-6 is smooth and refined, and with its 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque, it moves the Taurus with relative ease. It’s responsive and ready to roll at lower rpm, and the 6-speed automatic transmission is geared low in first gear to improve the takeoff. The Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger have a bit more horsepower, but respond more slowly.

The Taurus SHO uses a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 rated at 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is standard equipment, and it does a good job of putting that power to the ground. Though the Taurus SHO is outmuscled by the Dodge Charger R/T, its smooth, broad torque curve makes highway passing a cinch.

The ride with the SE, SEL and Limited models is relatively quiet and comfortable on the standard 18-inch wheels, not so much on the 20-inchers. The Taurus is most at home cruising on a smooth freeway, with a soft and smooth ride. Our compliments to the police officers who hustle the Taurus around city streets chasing bad guys.

The SHO changes the story: same chassis but different suspension, although not enough to remove its big-sedan feel. With stiffer shocks and springs, and larger anti-roll bars, the SHO turns in crisply, for a big sedan. The steering delivers good feedback and a precise, direct action. It feels nicely balanced and grips the road well, although the body leans when driven hard in corners.

An optional Performance Package for the SHO adds stronger brakes, revised steering tuning, different suspension settings, and summer tires. So-equipped, the Taurus SHO handles surprisingly well, although snow-belters will need to plan for a set of winter tires.

Summary

The 2019 Taurus doesn’t do anything poorly, with the possible exception of rear outward vision. The SHO hangs better with today’s sport sedans, with its modern twin-turbo V-6, and could still be a very fun vehicle if the price is right.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
