The Ford has been trying to add a milestone to the 2019 Ford Taurus ahead of its official debut at the end of next year. The sixth-gen Taurus is undergoing a minor overhaul with the addition of various stylish safety and technological features. Expect the inbound Taurus to become a lot roomier than the incumbent model.
The next Taurus will serve a dual purpose. First, it gets bigger to attract buyers searching for spacious automobiles and secondly, its size will comply with automobile regulations in China.
On the exterior, this model is about seven inches smaller than its forerunner. However, it has an extra four inches of wheelbase that creates the roominess inside. As a result, the cabin becomes more spacious than in the outgoing Taurus. This change in design accommodates a different engine.
2019 Ford Taurus – Comes with new Kinetic design language
The 2019 Ford Taurus marks the introduction of the new Kinetic design language. It measures 196 inches long and 73 inches wide. The car’s trunk is hollow and has a volume of about 20 cubic feet, making it tremendously spacious for users. Besides, its seats are neatly arranged with spaces in between to give further comfort to the passengers.
The inbound Ford Taurus comes with a sizeable trapezoidal bar grille, swept-back LED headlights and subtle chrome inserts. The extended rear end and directed fog lamps give a limousine-like appearance that makes it look a lot more appealing. The 2019 model is set to lure the buyers with a panoramic glass rooftop, two exhaust pipes at the back and large 20-inch alloy wheels.
The facelifted Taurus presents a stylish interior that comprises a massive legroom for the rear seats, the rotary gear selector, the protracted center stack and even the digital instrument cluster. One of the fundamental features of the digital instrument cluster is a 10.1-inch touchscreen bearing Ford’s standard SYNC3 user interface.
The cabin also houses a built-in Sony radio system, audio system and 12-speaker system which provide a unique surround sound system. Seats are wrapped in leather and include an inbuilt heating and therapeutic massaging system. These elements take the overall comfort to a whole new level.
Inside the cabin, the automaker has stacked a wireless Bluetooth, automated climate control system, wireless 4G LTE contacts and 2 USB ports. Additionally, there is a reinforced wiper system that is designed to drive out foggy and moist conditions. We also expect to find several advanced safety features—Forward Collision Warning System, Blind-Spot Monitoring, Brake Assistance and Adaptive Cruise Control. All these come as standard.
2019 Ford Taurus – Few Engine Variants
The 2019 Ford Taurus is expected to convey a variety of engine options. First, there is the likelihood of a 3.5-liter V6 engine with the capacity of up to 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. Another likely engine is a 3.5-liter Eco-Boost V6 unit with sufficient power to spew up to 356 horses and 350 pound-feet of torque.
The Ford is also likely to offer optional smaller powertrains, including a 2.0-liter Eco-Boost motor that yields 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The car’s fuel efficiency rating is nominal. The 6th gen Taurus uses a nine-speed gearbox that proves handy in saving fuel.
The most efficient drivetrain will be a 2.0-liter Eco-Boost unit that promises 26 miles per gallon. Further, the lightweight materials used to craft the car’s body will improve the total efficiency. The 2019 Ford Taurus comes with Front-Wheel-Drive as standard while Four-Wheel-Drive is optional.
