2019 Ford Taurus Review: Front Seats | CarMax

Choose the base 2019 Taurus SE and you'll be pleasantly surprised at what comes standard, such as six-way power driver and passenger seats, and that's just the beginning. The front-wheel-drive SE also features remote keyless entry, power windows, and the SYNC® Voice Recognition Communications and Entertainment System, all as standard equipment.

2. Time to "SHO" off!

Opt for the 2019 Ford Taurus SHO, short for "Super High Output," and experience a true sports sedan. With a twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost® engine putting out 365 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, you'll get the optimal driving performance you're looking for. That is all on top of standard AWD, a sport-tuned suspension, and performance brakes. It all adds up to a thrilling driving experience.

3. Loads of space

A full-size, five-passenger car means you should expect full-size measurements. The Taurus doesn't disappoint with regard to space. Look for 20.1 cubic feet of trunk space so you can haul five friends' belongings along with hauling five friends. Those friends will ride in style with 102.2 cubic feet of passenger volume and optional luxury features like power seats, leather interior, and much more!
