2019 Ford Taurus Safety & Driver Assistance Features
One of Ford’s oldest enduring sedan models is now safer and more fun to drive than ever before. Big, comfortable and quiet, with more than enough power to get around slow-moving traffic, the 2019 Ford Taurus is quickly making a rebound in the popular family sedan market thanks to added driver assistance and protection aids that are better than ever before.
Powerful Engine Lineup
Like most popular sedans these days, the Ford Taurus is now designed for the driving enthusiast thanks to added power from two available engines, including the 3.5L Ti-VCT engine that provides up to 288 HP or the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine that jumps this power up to 365 HP. Both engines are mated to 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission that allows you to enjoy the energetic feel of a manual shift, including the complete control over gear selection, without the need for a clutch.
Intelligent All-Wheel Drive sensors also balance torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction.
Evolution in Driver Assistance
The best part about owning a 2019 Ford Taurus is the addition of all the new driver assistance technologies that help both you and your passengers navigate each road ahead safer than ever before. Beginning with adaptive cruise control that goes a step above cruise control, this software uses built-in sensors to detect slow moving traffic ahead and, in turn, slows down your Taurus model until traffic clears. Available forward collision warning with brake support also alerts you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. Lane Keep Assist technology also keeps this Ford vehicle on the road no matter day or night thanks to a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimics driving over a rumble strip, should the system detect an unintentional lane departure.
Anyone who despises parallel parking is going to love the Ford Taurus’s all-new Active Park Assist package that not only helps you locate a parking spot on those busy city streets and uses ultrasonic sensors to measure the distance between the curb as well as between parked cars to safely park your car even in the tightest of spots.
Ford’s Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert even keeps you from having to strain your neck to notice a vehicle in your blind spot. Ford’s SYNC® 3 voice-activated technology also allows you to locate that hard to find restaurant or coffee shop along with built-in navigation or even control your smartphone hands free.
Throw in safety features like electronic traction and stability control, dual front airbags, front-seat-mounted, side-curtain airbags and even Ford's programmable MyKey system that helps parents encourage teenagers to drive responsibly through a restricted driving mode set up by you – the parent.
