The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Don't look to the 2008 Ford Taurus X for driving excitement, but otherwise, it's darn near the most perfect family wagon there is. The 2008 Chrysler Pacifica isn't long for this world, but still offers good interior seating and flexibility.
