Let's check out how the 2015 Ford Taurus stacks up against the Toyota Avalon.
Want to save $5000 from the get-go? Then you'd be smart to choose a 2015 Ford Taurus instead of the Toyota Avalon. The Taurus has a starting MSRP of $27,055 while the Avalon puts you into debt right away with a starting price tag of $32,285. So you'll save money before you even step into the Plattner's Chiefland showroom just by going with a Taurus! Plus, you'll appreciate the standard MyKey intelligent key with memory, and integrated blind-spot mirrors that come standard on the 2015 Ford Taurus but aren't available on the hefty priced Avalon.
The 2015 Ford Taurus gives you powerful engine choices -- a 3.5L V6 with 288 horses, a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 producing 350 hp, and a 2.0L EcoBoost Inline 4 with 240 hp. They're mated to a 6-speed SelectShift automatic overdrive transmission, and the sporty SHO model includes paddle shifters. By contrast, you're limited to only one powertrain in the Toyota Avalon -- (there's a Hybrid, but we're focused on gas engines only) -- a 3.5L V6 with 268 horses, married to 6-speed transmission, and no paddles shifters available. Just perusing the numbers it's easy to see that the 2015 Ford Taurus wins the power race hands down.
Driving a luxury mid-size sedan, of course, comfort is of prime importance. You'll get it in the 2015 Ford Taurus front seat with a generous 39 inches of headroom vs. the Avalon's 37.6 inches, and you can stretch out more on long road trips in the Taurus with there's no leg cramps ample 44.2 inches of front legroom over the tight 42.1 inches you'll get in the Avalon. And you'll have tons of room for groceries, gear and luggage with the 2015 Ford Taurus' 20.1 cubic feet of trunk volume vs. the 16 cubic feet you'll have to settle for in the Avalon.View Inventory
