2019 Ford Taurus vs. Its Competition

2019 Ford Taurus
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Ford Taurus has a household name, but rivals offer more car for similar money.

From Detroit, the Chevy Impala and Dodge Charger feel more modern and have far more personality, even if they’re both beginning to gray at their temples.

The Buick LaCrosse is priced a class up and feels it, with its sublime ride quality and luxury features.

The luxurious Kia Cadenza takes Buick virtues and adds in a dose of German style for an appealing overall package.

Look past the Toyota Avalon’s controversial styling and you’ll find the most modern big sedan on the market, one that should be on every shopper’s list.
