2015 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2015 Ford Taurus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick LaCrosse than the Ford Taurus. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse, drivers may find the Ford Taurus a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick LaCrosse as you will with the Ford Taurus, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Buick LaCrosse is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Taurus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick LaCrosse is much higher than that for the Ford Taurus.

Dimensions
Since the Buick LaCrosse is much slimmer than the Ford Taurus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Buick LaCrosse is slightly shorter than the Ford Taurus, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Buick LaCrosse transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Ford Taurus.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick LaCrosse is somewhat more powerful than the Ford Taurus.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Ford Taurus. The Buick LaCrosse has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Taurus, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick LaCrosse than that of the Ford Taurus.
