Reviewers find the 2009 Taurus X to be a solid performer with good power and smooth handling.

  • "[The Taurus X] isn't a ferocious performer, [but] you can expect solid acceleration from both low and high speeds, and families should be able to load up this wagon on road trips without causing it to strain on highway grades." -- Edmunds

Acceleration and Power

The Taurus X is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 that creates 263 horsepower and 249 pound-feet of torque.

With all-wheel drive, those numbers decrease to an EPA-estimated 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.

Handling and Braking

The Taurus X's independent suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and light weight make it an easy handler. Anti-lock brakes are standard, and the Taurus X is available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
