2019 Ford Taurus Review, Release Dates, Prices

The Ford Taurus continues to struggle as the only American car in the full-size sedan segment. Having been on a road without significant changes for 10 years, the 2019 Ford Taurus is a legacy in the class that has seen competitors make a big gap with more luxury features and technology. With Ford prioritizing on SUVs and crossover, production for the Taurus will officially end in March 2019, making the 2019 model the last for the Taurus nameplate.
