February 28 2020 GM will shut down the plant that produces the Impala, Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac CT-6 and retool the plant to build electric pickups.

All manufacturers are getting rid of "most" of their car lines. Ford will only make the Mustang, and a variant of the Focus in the near future. they are putting their eggs in the SUV basket..

As for me. I love my Taurus, and wouldn't trade it for any SUV on the market. Ride is style, and comfort. At 80 mph. you can't even feel it moving. And it gets 29 MPG.

Toyota and Honda will be selling all the sedans in the future.

That is my exact feeling with our Taurus as well. We can get 31-32 mpg depending on weather, but we have no stop and go traffic to deal with.

They have not made true luxury automobiles for many years, they've been trying to imitate European cars. I would order tomorrow, in a heartbeat, another 1979 Cadillac Coupe DeVille De'Elegance.

I'm going to buy a vehicle soon and the Taurus is on the short list. The majority of my driving would be short trips without many traffic light stops. To the guys that have them what do you think the mileage would be on three mile trips?

I've been considering a mid-size just because of the mileage but really don't want to.

Three miles isn't far enough to get up to operating temperature. Mileage will suck, especially in cold weather.

We were looking at sedans recently but found them too low and too hard to get in and out of. We bought a Toyota Highlander SUV and problem solved.

My wife has an older Taurus (2013) and it only gets about 22 MPG, but it's a four wheel drive.
