8. Ford Taurus
The Taurus is the car that’s credited with saving Ford during the 80s. The sedan was everything that buyers were looking for at a time when the company was going under. But the modern Taurus is a mere shadow of its heyday. The big, bulky sedan is no longer a powerhouse when compared to Japanese models. The Taurus has been relegated to rental car fleets. So, what does the Taurus offer? Well, it boasts an extremely large interior. The sedan is quite large overall, but size isn’t everything.
The Taurus is lacking inadequate power to pull all that weight around, and that’s something buyers are going to notice. For what the Taurus offers, it’s extremely overpriced and more expensive than the competition. Even the limited edition SHO package has lost its luster. And there doesn’t appear to be anything that the company can do to revitalize it. The Taurus is one of the last large sedans on the market. With the rise of crossover vehicles, it looks to be the last.
Boasting a large interior isn’t all that’s important these days. Buyers want more. Ford is shifting its focus toward the crossover market and the Taurus is going to be left behind. The large sedan is a car that you should avoid for the 2020 model year.
