The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Ford may never call it a wagon for marketing reasons, but the 2009 Ford Taurus X is just that—practical, convenient, safe, and quite possibly one of the best wagons ever produced. The attractive 2009 Saturn Outlook is a large, comfortable utility vehicle built with families in mind.
