For those who love Ford’s cars, the name 2019 Ford Taurus should not be a new one. It has been on the market for more than 30 years, changing design and shape, improving the engines and following the modernized models from their own factories. However, as many new cars have shown on the market in past decade, Taurus was simply lost its place on the market even among the most faithful buyers. The reason could be much better-designed models made in Ford and other popular manufacturers, or simply losing the step with other brands on the market. Some rumors said that Taurus will not be offered on US market anymore, so this model is actually a Chinese version of it, offered only for buyers who live there. In that case, many changes will be made to adjust the model to that market.
If rumors are right, 2019 Ford Taurus could be made on CD4 platform, used in China only. That means shorten car for 7 inches and 4 inches less in wheelbase, so the car follows the law in that country. Besides that, new Taurus could get the design from Ford Focus, as one of the most popular models from this manufacturer, but also it can have some similarities with Mustang, too. Otherwise, it is a classic design, with rhomboidal gridded grille and thin LED front lights and classical sedan-like rear end.
There are huge similarities of the cabin in 2019 Ford Taurus with new Lincoln Continental, as we saw on photos. There is high luxury leather trim, with modernly designed dashboard and touchscreen right in the middle of it, but most of the things are the same as on current model which should not be changed in new version.
There will be offered two engines in new 2019 Ford Taurus, as the old Chinese model has. First of them is 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, while the other one is 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 model. This model could get, for the first time, nine-speed automatic transmission as well as the four-wheel driving system. It also could happen that new model gets 2-liter or 2.3-liter Eco-boost engine which will replace the whole V6 line. However, the car offers great speed and acceleration, thanks to low weight and improved engine.
2019 Ford Taurus Release Date and Price
If our predictions are true, 2019 Ford Taurus will be possible to buy only in China. That will allow to the manufacturer to improve their existing models, more attractive to buyers and offer an electrical car under the new line of E-cars. More information we will have after Chicago Auto Show.
