2013 Chevy Impala vs. 2013 Ford Taurus

2013-Chevrolet-Impala-1024x576Barrington drivers looking for the 2013 Chevy Impala should visit Biggers Chevrolet in Elgin. At Biggers, among the lineup of great new Chevy cars, trucks, and SUVs, the Impala offers drivers a smooth ride with a luxurious interior at the cost of a mid-size sedan. There are quite a few contenders in the Impala’s market segment, though, like the 2013 Ford Taurus. Let’s take a look at how the Taurus stacks up.

Chevrolet Offers Power and More Features

Nobody really likes talking about money, but the fact is that it’s one of the biggest factors in many drivers’ new car search. Cost is one of the many areas that Chevy’s new sedan triumphs over the Taurus, with its MSRP of $25,860. The Taurus comes in at $26,600.

While price implies that you’ll get more with the Taurus, you actually don’t. Under the hood, the Impala has a 3.6L V6 that gets 300 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, compared to the Taurus’s 3.5L V6, which only manages 288 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque.

Not only is the Taurus less powerful, but it’s less efficient too. The Impala gets an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway to the Taurus’s 29 mpg. It may seem like a little difference, but it will add up over time. Again, the Impala prevails.

Once you get into the Impala, you’ll get standard features that Ford doesn’t offer on the Taurus, like satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, a handsfree communication system, and more. You’ll even get a leather-wrapped steering wheel on every Impala.

Finally, Chevrolet clearly has more faith in the performance of their vehicle, offering drivers a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty with roadside assistance, besting Ford’s 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.

We think it’s pretty clear that the Impala speeds right ahead of the Taurus everywhere that it counts.
