The 2019 Ford Taurus is a dead car driving. Look closely at its rivals.We all forget a thing or two, so perhaps we should forgive Ford for dropping the ball on its full-size sedan.
The 2019 Ford Taurus has been around for a while. The current model debuted 10 years ago, and even then its bones were derived from a decade-old Volvo platform. The years have not been kind to the Taurus, which is likely to disappear sometime in the 2019 model year as Ford moves toward a sedan-less lineup.

The 2019 Ford EcoSport wants for safety and styling that match even the lowered standards set by its price. The 2019 Ford EcoSport is the smallest of six crossover SUVs sold with the blue oval badge.

The Z3 Play starts Motorola’s third year of Moto Mod compatible phones. Its time might be up as design restrictions become apparent and its best features get worse
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
$499.99After buying and rescuing Motorola’s phone business, Lenovo went all-in on modular design. 2016’s Moto Z introduces Moto Mods, the snap-on accessory ecosystem that gave you a speaker, extra battery or even projector if you wanted it.

2019 Ford Escape Review

The 2019 Ford Escape works well as a crossover SUV, but has the ride and handling of a smartly tuned hatchback.The 2019 Ford Escape lives in a household full of bro-dozers and brute-utes, and somehow it thrives. The sleek, hatchback-ish crossover sells hundreds of thousands of copies a year, and we think we know why.
